Important information for apprentices
A training plan will need to be signed by all parties and returned to BSH before orientation and training can commence. This essential plan includes the compulsory units of training and electives.
The Department of Education & Training (DET) will contribute towards the cost of training and assessment services for an eligible Apprentice. This will assist you to attain your hairdressing qualification. All indentured apprentices must be an Australian Resident and working in a salon to enrol in this program. Apprentices are also required to pay a student contribution fee towards their training & education. This fee is set by DET.
Partial exemption of tuition fees not exceeding 25% will be allowed when the student holds a current health care card or pensioner concession card; or the participant presents an official form under Commonwealth law confirming that the participant is entitled to the above concessions
School based apprenticeships
Find a salon where you would like to work. Make certain you look well-presented and have a copy of your resume.
Ask if you can leave your resume with the view to gaining part-time employment in a ‘tea and tidy’ position or a school-based apprenticeship.
If all goes well your employer may employ you as a school-based apprentice at which point you can then choose BSH as your SRTO. You can attend your ‘off-the-job’ work in school holidays or on a fortnightly basis – whatever suits your timetable.
