Hello everyone, I am a researcher working on a study examining hairdressing apprentice pay. I'm looking for participants (completely confidential - not collecting identifiable personal or salon information) - apprentices, employers, trainers. Can you answer some questions for me about experiences of hiring/being an apprentice? In particular, I'd like to know about pay rates, training hours, awareness of NMW and pay rates for apprentices. I've been told different things about apprentices being allowed training time, breaks etc. But ultimately, anything you can tell me would be much appreciated. You can send me a private message if you don't want to post a reponse. The aim of my research is to try and understand experiences of apprentice pay from both the employer/salon and apprentice side. THANK YOU so much! Your help is greatly appreciated.
