Sassoon Academy is recognised as the global leader in hairdressing education, with a reputation built on developing and providing world-class education in hairdressing for over 65 years at their international academies and education centres. VTCT (Vocational Training Charitable Trust) is the UK market-leading specialist-awarding organisation for the Hairdressing, Beauty Therapy and Complementary Therapies sectors. This partnership between these leading organisations creates an exclusive opportunity for educators to take advantage of this incredible offer at no cost.

Mark Hayes, International Creative Director at Sassoon and member of the VTCT Skills Advisory Board shared, “The goal is to connect the Sassoon school with iTEC & VTCT centres by offering complimentary, virtual training that will supplement the existing skills of the iTEC & VTCT teachers. Sassoon has a legacy and philosophy like no other and our newest programme reinforces this pedigree, featuring all of the hallmarks of Sassoon education delivered by the best minds, and hands, in the business.”

Sassoon will be hosting four, live teacher training sessions with the Sassoon Senior Creative team. With an unparalleled system of training that has become definitive, Sassoon instructors will deliver the “Sassoon Connect Teacher Training Programme” with passion and professionalism, inspiring educators of all experience levels. The first three courses will use Sassoon’s exclusive Look & Learn demonstration methodology during one-hour sessions. They will be held each week over a three-week period beginning Tuesday, 9th March 2021. The programme will culminate in a fourth, three-hour hands-on “follow along” session on Tuesday 30th March.

Alan Woods OBE, Chief Executive of iTEC & VTCT said, “The ability for continued development and learning is important for any industry, but it is especially important for those who are influencing the next generation of professionals. This programme provides a wonderful opportunity for our educators to gain knowledge from the very best in our industry. We are delighted to partner with Sassoon to offer these free sessions to our dedicated tutors and lecturers after what has been an unprecedented past year.”

Debbie Webster, CEO of Sassoon shared, “ Vidal Sassoon, CBE, once said ‘If someone were to ask me, what’s the number one thing, in essence, that you left behind? It was teaching others so that they could take my work further.’ Education today, is an investment we are making for tomorrow. To be the best educators, we have to stay inspired in order to inspire those we teach. The future of our industry and our students depend on this.”
