Phillips Hair Academy
Philips Hair Academy is an independent work-based learning provider based over two sites in Wakefield and Leeds, West Yorkshire. They have successfully offered apprenticeship training for nearly 2 decades and work with around 200 salons in the area. Year-on-year, over 90% of the young people who train with them remain employed in the hairdressing field. Maybe this is because they established themselves as one of the top hairdressing salons in the area prior to creating their academy. As part of the Philips Group, they have four hairdressing salons located within West Yorkshire in addition to their two academy sites. The first one was established in 1974 and so they are a company who have been successful for over 40 years; employing over 70 stylists and more than 20 educators.
