Traineeship and Engagement

What is a Traineeship?

Traineeships are for young people who want to work, but who need extra support to gain an apprenticeship or job. Traineeships are fully funded and the Trainee will receive £30 – £50 per week plus help with their travel expenses. There is no cost to you as an employer if you start a Trainee in your salon.


How does it work?

The Trainee will attend off job training sessions at HB Training on Mondays and spend 3-5 days a week with you in your salon for a period of up to 9 months, working towards an NVQ level 1 qualification.


How do I find a Trainee?

Trainees are aged 16-19. You may already have someone in mind or you can speak to us directly as we may have young people waiting to start in your area. Careers Wales may also have young people on a waiting list.  

What is expected from me as an Employer?

We would like you to commit your time to training and developing the Trainee and setting time aside to review progress with HBT’s Training Consultant when required.
