Employer Training Services
We will work with your company to produce a training programme appropriate for your trainees. Unlike many institutions you can work with us to develop individual programme plans to suit your business.
Assessor Training Services
The next step for hairdressers looking to develop training skills is often assessment awards. We train between 50 and 100 new assessors every year. Many of these courses are free* to partner salons. The cost of programme delivery is often paid for by Span. Contact us for more details.
Traineeship and Apprenticeships
Whether you are leaving school or already an established employee, you can earn a wage while you gain your Apprenticeship qualification in Hairdressing, Customer Service, Business Admin or Management.

*Courses delivered free by Span may still incur charges from awarding bodies such as City and Guilds that are beyond our control. We pass these fees on at cost. Typically, registration and certification fees for an Assessors course are passed to the candidate or employer. Span's delivery elements such as seminars, assessment, support and verification are delivered with no funding from Government and are our gift to our loyal client salons. Each client salon is entitled to one free course per workplace.
