Send your Hairdressing trainees to Exceed to qualify in a real salon environment
Hairdressing is our passion.
Training is our business.
Exceed is owned and run by Helen Roe, a full time hairdresser, salon owner and lecturer in Hairdressing and Beauty. With our practical experience of running and working in a salon, we can offer your apprentices the perfect mix of skills required for today’s salons.
Training groups at Exceed have no more than 10 trainees in a class, allowing us to provide a more bespoke, practical and tailored approach.
If your trainee is under 19 years of age there is no financial cost to you.
Students attend Exceed Academy for one day a week, every week, for two years. This provides students with the maximum amount of learning opportunity. It also means you don’t have the responsibility and stress of training them yourself. You can get on with the running of your business in the secure knowledge that they are being trained by another salon owner who knows what is required in Hairdressing today.
We help employers to make the best use of their trainees as a valuable addition to the team.
In the first year we will provide one-to-one training to establish the requirements of a student to work in your salon – not everyone has the same requirements.
At Exceed we have developed different ways of working with salon owners to provide a more bespoke package of skills for the apprentice the needs of the salon.
As industry professionals, we can also help you with issues relating to your business that may involve your apprentice, i.e.
At Exceed, second year trainees are helped to recruit new clients and build up their own clientele to ensure they are contributing to the costs of running the business. This exercise teaches them to actively market themselves and gives them the confidence to build up their own client base.
One example of how you could encourage juniors to make money for the business and therefore feel more productive is ...
We teach your staff how to promote conditioning treatments (Exceed will supply these)
Exceed will make this a competition and award a prize to the junior who sells the most treatments.
This kind of exercise also teaches apprentices about retail sales and helps them to understand how important products can be to the productivity of a salon.
