Hello to our lovely clients and models!
We are not yet in a position to open the Shears Academy appointment book yet, as although most salons have now reopened, many need their Apprentices at their own salons for the first week or two.
We will therefore begin taking your bookings just as soon as we know we have enough apprentices to meet demand as we do not wish to disappoint anyone of you.
Keep safe and well, we can't wait to welcome you back shortly!
With warmest wishes
The Shears Academy Team
Huge congrats to all salons who re-opened their doors to clients on Friday or at the weekend!!
We know some of you need your apprentices in the salons full time for the first week or so, so do in get in touch with Tracey from Monday - Wednesdays if you wish to discuss. Meanwhile we are very happy to welcome the priority groups back to the Academy this week. We are pleased to advise we are Covid-19 Secure, with all PPE, social distancing and hygine processes in place.
Please do not hesitate to email Pauline: firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to discuss any aspect of apprenticeship employment or training requirements.
Best wishes, The Shears Academy Team
Hello Employers and Apprentices
We sincerely hope you are all keeping safe and well.
The Shears Academy Team are preparing plans for returning to the Academy as soon as the government confirm it is safe to do so.
In line with the first salons opening on Saturday July 4th, we plan to re-open to Apprentices week commencing Monday 6th July with full Social Distance Secure measures in place to ensure the highest levels of safety for our team and apprentices. WE WILL NOT BE BOOKING IN MODEL CLIENTS AT THIS TIME, but Group A and C apprentices will be working on Training Heads and Group A and C on completeing all paper-based work, and theory.
The government is encouroughing everyone to avoid using public transport if at all possible. Therefore we have gathered information from Apprentices to enable us to Risk Assess their prospective journeys whilst attending Shears Academy.
Priority will be given to those apprentices that are due to take EPA in June and August, and also those apprentices that have found difficulty in participating in online learning delivery.
Employers: We will be contacting you over the next week to discuss your apprentice's return to face to face training with us., meanwhile if you have any queries at this particular time, please email us on and we will get back to you.
Warmest regards, the Shears Academy Team.
