Sally Salon Services ups industry training
Sally Salon Services has launched a training academy for its store staff in a bid to up service and to promote those with a beauty therapy or nails qualification as experts. The wholesaler said it aims to get 600 of its 1,350 store-based employees qualified through the The Hair and Beauty Academy by the end of 2011. Salon Service's industry-qualified store managers and sales assistants will be offered a fast-track process to receive a certificate of achievement and a badge that highlights the fact they are a 'qualified beauty therapist' or 'qualified hairdresser'. Non-qualified store managers and sales assistants will go through a structured learning programme using industry workbooks and commercial projects to raise staff knowledge and confidence. On completion of the seven modules employees will receive a certificate of achievement and a badge to say they are a 'hair adviser' or 'beauty adviser'. Sally Hair & Beauty launched the Salon Services trade-only division last year. It still operates retail stores under the Sally fascia, many of which have professional Salon Services shop-in-shops. The academy was opened by MP John Redwood (pictured centre) and Sally MD Richard Hull (second from left).
