Sarah Seaman appointed to advise on the National Occupational Standards for Hairdressing
ABLE’s (Andrew Barton London Education) General Manager, Sarah Seaman has been appointed to the Expert Working Group for Hairdressing to work with other industry professionals to review the current, and develop the next the next wave, of National Occupational Standard (NOS) which will then be used as the basis of future hairdressing qualifications.
Sarah is perfectly placed to advise on the future of hairdressing education. A fully qualified hairdresser, she has worked in the industry for over two decades and cares passionately about young people’s learning in the industry and the outcomes of their investment in training. She worked closely with Andrew Barton to create Andrew Barton London Education (ABLE) and is responsible for ensuring that it supports hairdressing education for apprentices both now and in the future.
Sarah says, “I am highly honoured to be a part of this group of experts from within our industry. I look forward to working with experienced individuals to help form and shape the next generation of qualifications for the hairdressers of our future.”
It was Sarah’s educative intuition that future-proofed the content of ABLE so it met with long-anticipated Level 3 Standard Apprenticeship in Hairdressing, which came into force earlier this year.
ABLE is an extended qualification linked to industry and empowers employment opportunities with an ABLE certificate alongside the traditional Standard/ technical qualification. ABLE provides teachers with a package of additional resources to enhance delivery and build upon the students learning and experience.
