Finding the Balance Between Theory and Practice
Apprenticeships are a brilliant way to gain a qualification in your chosen career. It allows you to gain knowledge whilst working within the industry. You learn first hand what it is like to work in your chosen career and work with people who have plenty of experience. I value the fact you learn from fellow work colleagues as well as the knowledge and basic key practice from the college. Working whilst doing your apprenticeship helps gain understanding of how people work differently whether it be practically or methodically. It also helps create a platform for future jobs. Another positive that means a lot to me, is that I am able to earn a wage whilst learning my chosen subject.
Tasmin. Senior Apprentice
Hey my name is Charlotte and I’m 27. I was 25 when I decided to follow my dream and start the journey of becoming a hairdresser.
It was an amazing adventure being a student again, having homework, having a teacher, making school friends and also starting a new job at the bottom and working my way into the team as a stylist.
The memories are incredible to look back on now and I really enjoyed every moment.
Whilst being an apprentice at GGH I won the apprentice of the year which was so overwhelming as I really put my all into my training and work. Everyone at GGH gave me the best training and put so much time and effort to help me become a stylist to a good standard.
