Welcome to HJ's Apprentice Week 2024: The Official Schedule

Published 05th Feb 2024 by Chlo Weldon

HJ’s Apprentice Week 2024 is taking place between Monday 5 February to Sunday 11 February to tie in with National Apprentice Week and help to support apprentices through difficult times.

Whether you are just starting out as a hairdressing apprentice, or want to support your apprentices in your hair salon, our week of content will cover everything you need to know about being a hairdressing apprentice.

We hope HJ's Apprentice Week 2024 will give all of you who have made the decision to join our fabulous industry the chance to share your personal experiences, what you've learned over the past few challenging years, as well as what you would like to see from your salon owners, teams and lecturers moving forward.

Apprentices, juniors and college students are the future of our industry so we want this week to be a celebration of what lies ahead for all of you and all of us by highlighting the passion, inspiration and creativity you will be sharing over the coming months and years!
