Introducing Popham Hairdressing, Special Recognition Award sponsor

We are delighted to introduce Popham Hairdressing as the sponsor of the Oxfordshire Apprenticeship Awards 2021 Special Recognition Award. This Award recognises an Apprentice who has overcome barriers to work or learning to achieve in their Apprenticeship. 

Popham Hairdressing is Oxford’s Sassoon Professional Partner and the only UK hairdressing company to be awarded Champion Investor in People. They offer hair-cutting and a wide range of colour services in their three Oxford salons and lead in the delivery of higher standards of practice, craft skill, design and creativity. Popham believe that it’s a privilege to be trusted to change the way a person looks - even transform how they feel about themselves - and are committed to providing a true quality hairdressing service, through investment in the development of their team.

Apprentices at Popham are given the proper training, skills and attention to their Apprenticeship that is required. Popham directors and training manager are on hand to support them, guide them and ensure that delivery of the Apprentice scheme is exemplary.

Popham Hairdressing won the Apprenticeship Employer of the Year (<50 employees) Award 2018 and as a result, went on to sponsor the Award in 2019. 

One of their Apprentices, Libby Orum, was Highly Commended in the Special Recognition Award in 2019. The firm decided to sponsor this category for 2020 and 2021, having seen how much it meant to her and how important it is to recognise Apprentices who have overcome challenges and their dedication, commitment and strength.
