You can come to us independently or may be referred to us by another salon. Whatever your background, you can rely on the Leslie Frances Education Team to support you every inch of the way.

    Our friendly team of hair care experts will guide you to achieve valuable NVQ's (National Vocational Qualifications), which will give you a sound basis to develop your career in hairdressing. Click on the qualification titles above for an overview of each programme of study.

    What's in it for me?

    Apprenticeships allow you to learn while you earn. Once you qualify, you could go on to endless career opportunities from working as a Top Stylist at your local salon to working on a Cruise Ship or Overseas. You could also use your qualifications to get into TV & Film Work, Fashion & Photographic Work or you could go into Teaching or Managing your own Salon.
