Beauty salon scoops National Apprenticeship Award

Beauty Oasis Spa has been revealed as ‘Small Employer of the Year' at the National Apprenticeship Awards, which took place at an exclusive ceremony at London's Grosvenor House this January.

The Awards, now in their 14th year, are run by the National Apprenticeship Service and recognise excellence in two areas: businesses that grow their own talent with apprentices and apprentices who have made a significant contribution to their workplaces.

Having taken on apprentices for the past eight years, Beauty Oasis Spa has grown from one salon to three, with its most recent salon fully-staffed through the apprenticeship programme. In addition, the spa has partnered with Weston College to develop resources and gain support for its apprenticeships. 

“We are so pleased to have been recognised by winning this award,” commented Sarah Hallaran, Owner at Beauty Oasis Spa. “Apprenticeships are an integral part of our business, and the reason we are so successful in our industry. This award is a huge ‘thank you' and a recognition of all the hard work carried out day-to-day by our wonderful Beauty Oasis team - we all are thrilled.”

The ceremony also saw Beauty Oasis Spa named in the prestigious Top 100 Apprenticeship Employer list, which recognises excellence in businesses that support apprentices.
