An apprenticeship is THE best way to build your team.
Developed by experts in the hair and beauty industry, it is a work-based training program designed to give your staff members the highest quality skills in areas they and you need them most.
Your apprentices will learn all the skills, knowledge, and behaviours they need to be a successful member of your team, develop a successful career and to help build your business.

There are grants available to employers for employing an apprentice. The main grant is currently £1000 for those employed and enrolled onto an apprenticeship when they are between 16 to 18 years old. There may also be grants available through your local authorities, you should check with them directly for these.
In most cases no the only costs to the business will be the apprentice wage.
If you employ an apprentice aged 16-18 you don’t have to pay a penny towards their training. For apprentices aged 19+, you will be required to pay a 5% contribution and we work with you to ensure this cost is manageable.
In most cases our apprenticeships a fully work based programs meaning we will come to you in your salon to complete the training and assessments.
We can offer learners the opportunity to attend one of our Academies on day release, if they are based within travelling distance of them, and we hold weekly scheduled training sessions online in our virtual classrooms as well as holding a fantastic library of learning materials in our Kleek Klassroom.
Our educator ran training is much more hands-on than a typical college course and gives the apprentice the skills, knowledge and behaviours to excel in their chosen career and become job ready whilst giving them the time to settle and become an integral part of your team.
Instead of your apprentice taking time out of work for days in college, your apprentice and salon are assigned a dedicated Kleek Educator. They’ll plan and oversee your tailor-made learning program and offer support and guidance both online and face-to-face.
We have developed a bespoke interactive virtual learning environment the Kleek Klassroom, to make your apprentices learning journey as engaging and smooth as possible.
Apprentices and employers have a unique calendar, where you can log and track training hours, schedule your Kleek Educators visits, and book apprentices onto our exclusive Academy courses. You will also get the contact details of your designated educator meaning you can call them at anytime to review the progress of your apprentice.
