Level 3 Trailblazer Hair Professional Apprenticeship Update

The chair of the Trailblazer Apprenticeship Steering Group for hair professionals, Wendy Cummings said: “We now have a world-class apprenticeship standard and End Point Assessment Plan, that really raises the bar and allows an apprentice to demonstrate their professional skills, knowledge and creativity in hairdressing.”

Caroline Larissey, director of quality and standards at the NHBF and steering group member added: “It has been a challenging and prolonged process completing these standards and assessment plans with constant changes in direction and requirements from the IfATE, but we stuck to our guns and we have a standard and End Point Assessment Plan that is right of our industry.”

Hairdressers were given the opportunity to have their say on the direction of the Trailblazer Apprenticeship Standards back in 2017.

HJ recently spoke to VTCT’s CEO Alan Woods and the NHBF’s director of quality and standards Caroline Larissey about whether apprenticeships have improved in recent years.
