  • The Problem
    • The greatest asset any business has is the means by which it ensures that firstly, the right people are attracted to the business (in the right numbers) and secondly, that they are trained to do the job to the required standards.
      • Keith Chandler
  • The Problem
    • The greatest problem facing hairdressing as we enter the 21st century is people:
    • Attracting the right people
    • Training them to the highest standards
    • Keeping them in the business
    • People are the key resource in hairdressing, if we have no new hairdressers, we have no tomorrow!
  • The Problem
    • There are four major ‘people threats’ preventing us from building our teams…
    • Demographic change – not as many young people
    • Social change – young people expect much more
    • Changes in the economics – it costs more to train people than ever before
    • Changes in the employment and training climate - there are more rules
  • Demographic Change
    • In 2009, there are almost two million less 16 - 24 year olds in Britain than in 1995
    • This means that in a town with a population of 100,000, there are now 3,500 less 16 - 24 year olds than ten or twelve years ago !
    • Q: Into which age group does 66% of all salon hairdressers and… 95% of all new entrants to hairdressing fit ?
  • Social Change
    • We live in a different world than we did 15, 10 or even 5 years ago
    • In the world today, people are not prepared to wait…
    • … young people want things now - and if they are training to be a hairdresser they are probably watching their friends get a much better package than they are!
  • Social Change
    • What package does a 17 year old office worker get?
    • Hours p/week - 35 hours - working day 9 to 5
    • Late nights - none (overtime payments)
    • Holiday - 5 weeks and all Bank Holidays
    • Pension scheme - normal (and sick pay also)
    • Lunch - 1 hour + subsidised meals
    • Breaks - am + pm without fail
    • Bonus - Christmas bonus is usual
    • Weekly pay - £250 upwards
  • Economic Change
    • How much does it cost to train a young person to be a hairdresser?
  • Economic Change
    • How much does it cost to train a young person to be a hairdresser?
    • It takes between 500 and 600 hours to train a hairdresser from scratch
    • The cost of training a single individual is
    • between £12,500 and £17,500

    • Our aim is for SAM to become the training programme of choice for all 3-6-5 salons.
  • Why Does SAM Exist? SAM exists... ...because there is a miss-match between what a salon owner needs and what a college or a local managing agent delivers The salon owner needs a well trained, highly motivated, committed young person who wants to go on and build a successful career…
  • What Does a College Offer? The college offer A college or a local managing agent delivers a piece of paper that says NVQ on it and the quicker the college or managing agent can achieve this piece of paper the quicker they get paid! The result?
