Abstract
Research in the field of hairstyling in Alberta has been tremendously neglected, especially concerning the full term programs offered at private vocational colleges. Current research suggests that there has been a significant decrease of apprentices completing and receiving their Journeyperson certificate in hairstyling. This study identified and examined two factors affecting enrollment and completion of students registered in the full term hairstyling apprenticeship program and completion of students receiving their Journeyperson certificate in Alberta. Three sources of data were used, researcher’s field notes, self-administered questionnaires, and one-on-one semi-structured interviews. The research participants consisted of current managers and owners from seven post-secondary full term hairstyling trade institutes in Alberta. The study determined that insufficient support from the Alberta Apprenticeship and Industry Training Board and lack of financial funding at the provincial level was shown to have the greatest influence on apprenticeship completion rates in private vocational hairstyling institutes in Alberta.
