Level 3 - Hairdressing Apprenticeship

Josh Hilton

Josh, 21, is currently studying on the Level 3 Hairdressing Apprenticeship programme.

After Josh completed his GCSEs, he went on to another local college to study for AS Levels and A Levels. He realised that this wasn’t the right route for him and decided he wanted to learn a trade.

Josh says:

I decided to pick an Apprenticeship as I wanted to learn a practical trade and I had always been quite creative. I knew that I would be able to earn a wage whilst I was learning new skills and building up clients.
The Apprenticeship has really built up my confidence and now whenever we get brand new clients in the salon, they come to me. We’re all treated equally in the salon, I get the opportunity to cut and colour as often as the more qualified stylists do.
I have been supported throughout my Apprenticeship by my employer, my tutors and the support staff at Swindon College.

Once Josh completes the Level 3 Apprenticeship he hopes to stay on with his current employer and build up as much salon experience as possible. Josh says that one day he hopes to open his own salon.
