HOB Academy – Training for a Rewarding and Fulfilling Career

The HOB Academy is now offering external training for apprentices aged 16 and over to salons across the UK who are looking to begin their journey into a rewarding and fulfilling career in hairdressing and barbering.

HOB Academy

The apprentice programme involves the apprentice working in your salon four days a week, including a model night once a week. In addition to this, the apprentice will attend one day a week at the HOB Apprenticeship Academy in Camden covering both theory and practical course components. The team also offers in-salon training for those unable to attend the Apprenticeship Academy.

Working alongside your own training programme, the HOB Academy team – who have been named as finalists for the Employer Provider of the Year at the National Apprenticeship Awards 2024 – will prepare the apprentice for their End Point Assessment and carry out full mock assessments prior to the actual EPA. The apprenticeship will take 18-24 months, made up of 17-21 months learning on the course programme, with two further months preparing for the End Point Assessment. At the end of this the apprentice will gain the Level 2 Diploma for Hair Professionals.

HOB Apprentice Academy Manager, Treena Eagles-Sime says: “We are very excited about this new chapter for HOB Academy, having seen a huge success with our own apprentices, to be offering this training to the wider hairdressing community. Already signed to work with us are apprentices from Steven Carey, Percy & Reed, Saco and Palmer Fisher and we look forward to offering our skills to the next generation of hairdressers.”

The HOB Academy team also offer Level 2 Diploma the Barbering Professional Standard over a 14-18 month period and a Level 3 Diploma for Advanced and Creative Hair Standard over a 12-14 moth period, either in the academy or in salon training.
