Positive Approach Academy for Hair was established in 1984.
Since then it has become the leader in Hairdressing work based provision for Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire.
We presently work with 30 salons and have some 70 to 80 learners who are working towards two main hairdressing aims:-
16-18 year olds - Apprenticeship in Hairdressing City and Guilds Level II.
18-25 year olds - Advanced Apprenticeship in Hairdressing City and Guilds Level III.
Positive Approach has demonstrated an EXTRAORDINARY COMMITMENT to achieving the VERY HIGHEST STANDARDS OF QUALITY HAIRDRESSING TRAINING
SIMPLY THE BEST
The Training Academy is directed by two multi talented individuals with a wealth of experience in the training and commercial hairdressing field.
Our training philosophy isn’t just about teaching the theory and technical skills, it’s about inspiring each learner to love what they are doing and having a desire to succeed - that way they will be able to connect with the clients and create exceptional hair designs.
We are part of Consortia Training Limited which provides training throughout Nottinghamshire. The joining of these companies has brought together a wealth of experienced trainers, assessors and business advisors who can provide support for salons across the region, ranging from owner managed local salons to well known salon groups.
We provide a wide range of courses and have already helped hundreds of young people to successfully gain qualifications. With achievement rates above the national average, you really will be a ‘cut above the rest!
Positive Approach specialise in assisting people with training programmes and career development opportunities within the hairdressing sector. Our average achievement rate over the last 6 years is one of the best in the country, over 20% above the national average, for learners aged 16 to 18.
Learners can join Positive Approach at any time, once they have a salon placement to work in. You can get a placement by writing to employers, calling in, or by contacting us at the academy and we will arrange an interview for you. You will work in your employer’s salon each week and attend the Academy one day every other week. During the ‘off the job’ visit you will be given lessons to give you the knowledge and understanding required to take “E-volve” online assessments and tests.
