Kleek Apprenticeships expansion continues with Kleek Academy Colchester

We are growing, again! 

With our acquisition of the Colchester-based Easi Hairdressing Academy we are increasing our coverage in the Southeast of England. 

We have acquired a new academy.

Cementing our position as the UK’s leading national provider of specialist hair and beauty training, the acquisition of Colchester-based Easi Hairdressing Academy complements our existing academies, further strengthens our training provision in the Southeast of England and initiates the next phase in our ongoing development programme.


“Hot on the heels of our 2023 rebranding and renewed Ofsted Outstanding rating, this expansion is incredibly exciting for everyone at Kleek Apprenticeships,” said Managing Director, Tina Ockerby.  “It means we can bring our brand of exceptional high-quality training to more apprentices and salons across the southeast and help to nurture the best talent in the industry.” 


“As we continue to further enhance our award-winning services, we can’t wait to share our experience and expertise with the current intake of apprentices that use the Academy in Colchester, whilst ensuring all our salon employers are fully involved and central to their apprentices’ learning journeys.”
