If you’re a salon owner looking for the best apprenticeship scheme in the UK – look no further than Saks Academy Darlington!

Saks Academy Darlington is launching its apprenticeship scheme to local hair and barbering apprentices. Apprentices get the chance to gain Saks’ signature training and become a valuable asset to your salon.

Our renowned academy is open to all local salons - not just Saks salons – and we work with your apprentice to bring out the best in them and to nurture their talent, in turn providing real value and a fresh dynamic of talent to your salon.

We're here to train hair and barbering apprentices on day release or in your salon, with our talented Saks educators tailoring the training to suit your apprentice's learning style and your business needs. We tailor the training to help your apprentice to be the best!

The academy will run as a live, working salon, meaning that training and assessment will be on real clients - not dolls' heads! Your apprentice would receive the best experience possible, so you know they’re in safe hands when they’re training at our renowned academy.

By choosing us as your apprenticeship provider, you're future-proofing the legacy of your salon, and ensuring you have a quality stock of staff rising through the ranks. Your apprentice brings a new lease of life to your salon, so it’s only right they learn from the best.

Saks is the number one hair and beauty apprenticeship provider for employer satisfaction, and offers the only hair and beauty apprenticeship to be rated as Outstanding by Ofsted. We also take great pride in the fact that the first apprentices to get full marks in the new end-point assessments were Saks apprentices! Not only this, but we have achieved a 100% success rate for the new end-point assessment!

If you already have an apprentice, it's easy to switch to us - just contact us and we will take it from there!

Saks has been making their customers feel fantastic since 1974, and has been offering top-quality training and development to the hair and beauty industry since 2000. We're proud to have trained more than 6,500 apprentices across more than 750 salons – and now we’re bringing our expert training to Saks Academy Darlington.

Still need convincing? Come along and see for yourself! We’re hosting a fabulous, exclusive launch party on Monday, October 28, from 6pm to 8pm, at Saks Academy Darlington.

Meet our world-famous Saks Art Team who will be putting on a live show just for you, where you will learn some fantastic new techniques to take back to the salon! Check out @LukePluckrose on Instagram to see their fantastic work! You can also enjoy drinks and nibbles, and learn about what we can offer you. There’ll be goodie bags (GHD of course!) and you'll automatically be entered into a huge prize draw just for attending! This is not to be missed.
