Taking on an apprentice means you can train, educate and mentor your staff while they learn your business from the ground up. Beauty therapy employers can now access HITO’s apprenticeship training programme providing they have a Level 5 International qualification, or a New Zealand qualification.

From August 2018 to March 2019, we’re offering our Qualification by Experience programme free of charge to beauty therapists who have more than five years’ experience or a recognised international qualification, when they take on an apprentice.

Valued at up to $2000, the QbyE programme includes an official assessment to map international qualifications to the most current qualification within New Zealand.

Training an apprentice is a great form of professional development and a rewarding way of giving back to your industry. HITO provide a training framework, ongoing support and assessments to ensure apprentices reach the standards expected by the New Zealand beauty industry.
