New Academy opening

Great news! We’re so pleased to announce a 3rd Alan d training centre opening shortly in Chigwell, Essex.

Its’ long been an ambition to have a series of training schools all the way across the South of England and having been established in Central London for many years & in Ipswich for around seven years, it was an out-of-the-blue telephone call from one of our salon owners suggesting a new venture with him that precipitated this latest Alan d training centre.

We have been associated with Adrian Bourne, owner of Kimono & Co in Chigwell, for some 20 years as his preferred Apprentice training partner. He decided that it was time for a change, and over the last few months he’s been involving himself with our unique training program before opening his premises to local salon owners fed up with the terrible standard of Apprentice hairdressing & barbering training locally.

One of the reasons for wanting to be in Essex was the fact that so many parents don’t want their youngsters to travel into Central London. This partnership with Adrian gives us the perfect opportunity to bring London out to Essex as we’ve done so successfully in East Anglia. Kevin Day, our Academies’ Principal, together with some of our London team, will be working alongside Adrian to begin with.

So, if any of you reading this and want to know more, call me and we’ll talk!

There are probably two kinds of conversations we could have; the first being “can you help with training my staff” and the second could be “I’ve got premises and I want to get involved with the training side of the industry”. Either way, it would be great to hear from you. Call me at my office on 020 7634 9400.
