Welcome to Falltricks Hairdressing Academy, where we remain utterly passionate about one thing - Training!

The Falltricks Hairdressing Academy opened in 2001 and, due to overwhelming interest, the school moved to a larger state-of-the-art academy in 2006.

We believe hairdressing is the best industry in the world and a career for life. So why not earn money whilst training as an apprentice and start your fantastic education in hairdressing at the Falltricks Hairdressing Academy.

Thinking of taking on a new apprentice?

You will receive £3,000 for new apprentices of any age who have an employment start date of 1 April 2021 to 30 September 2021.

The incentive payment is in addition to the £1,000 employers already receive for hiring an apprentice: aged 16-18 or under 25 with an education, health and care plan or who has been in the care of their local authority

They must have an apprenticeship start date of 1 April 2021 to 30 November 2021.


You can only apply for new apprentices who joined your organisation from 1 April 2021 to 30 September 2021.

You cannot apply for an existing employee who joined your organisation before 1 April 2021, even if they started an apprenticeship after this date.

How to apply

You can apply for the incentive payment after you add new apprentices to your apprenticeship service account.

(We can help you set up your account).

When you’ll get paid

Government cannot make any payments until they have received and verified your organisation and finance details. This could take up to 80 days and we may contact someone from your organisation.

The monies are paid in 2 equal instalments for each apprentice. The first payment is due after an apprentice completes 90 days of their apprenticeship and the second is due after 365 days.

Government will make payments by Bacs on the 14th working day of the month. It usually takes 3 working days to process.

After you apply, you can view applications, estimated payment dates and check the status of each payment in your apprenticeship service account.
