Hairdressing and barbering specialists

NHTA offers accredited training at a time convenient to your salon. We’re hairdressing and barbering specialists. We’re passionate about delivering good quality qualifications for apprentices. And as the cost to your salon for apprenticeship training may be nothing at all, the benefits are endless.

Whether you own a hair salon or barbershop, we are fully committed to upskilling your staff so they can become future salon professionals. Developing staff skills will enable you to offer higher quality services to your customers. In some cases, there might be other financial incentives to take on an apprentice, such as local or national grants.

Apprenticeships give people the chance to gain employment and earn a wage. We design our courses around the needs of the apprentice and your salon. Apprentices receive 1-2-1 support and work-based training. As salon owners or managers, you will be given full support with your apprentices. You will always enjoy a personal and friendly service.

Your salon could also benefit from our apprenticeship matching service. Free to local employers, this is a type of recruitment agency service that will help you find a suitable apprentice to work at your hairdressing or barbershop. If you would like to become an apprentice, see our Training page for more information.

“In today’s consultation session, we discussed how to carry out a successful and professional consultation with a client and how to collect as much information as we can… I definitely feel a lot more confident with carrying out a consultation and different tests as well as the importance of them before each service.”
