Love the Hair & beauty industry? Interested in trends and fashion?
Want to know what its really like to work in a salon without committing to a college course?
The Future Experience Group – ‘The Cutting Club’ at The Grove Experience hairdressers in Grove Road in Eastbourne could well be your answer.
The Future Experience
The Future Experience is an after school club for 14 – 15 year olds who while still at school would like to develop some hairdressing experience. The club runs on a Tuesday between 4pm – 6pm and is open to anyone over the age of 14
(application forms are available from the salon or can be downloaded from our website).
The aim of the club which is free to join and free to attend, is to give year 11 pupils a taste of what the hair & beauty industry is about without having to commit to a full time job or college course.
The club run by Sophie Lilley at the Grove Experience salon covers all aspects of hairdressing, members will get to experience some cutting, perming, colouring, styling, hair-up, smoothing, extensions all at a basic intro level. This allows them to make informed decisions about their future careers while still at school.
The club starts out covering the basic skills working on each other then on to head blocks and then later bringing in models to work on.
For anyone who completes the full programme and stays up to finishing school, they would have a good ground knowledge of hairdressing, which would give them a great head start if they then choose hairdressing as a career. If they chose to apply to join our full time education NVQ level 2 programme they would be given first option on future positions within the company putting them at the front of the queue.
As a company we do not employ anyone out of college and we are not alone in this so this club gives any potential job applicant at any salon a great advantage when applying for what are now limited salon positions.
The Next intake for the Future Experience is September, applications are being taken now. Send your application in to the salon or pop in to see Sophie.
