Dear Ashley Khan

Hairdressing Apprenticeship at Shear Joy

I am writing in response to the advertisement for an apprentice in your salon window.

As requested, please see enclosed a copy of my CV for your consideration.

You will see that, while at school, I took a two-year part-time NVQ1 course in hairdressing. I have also completed the NVQ2 hairdressing course at college. I am very keen to do ongoing on-the-job training to improve my skills. I understand from your advert that there is a possibility of completing an Intermediate or Advanced Apprenticeship.

For the past two years I have worked part-time in a local salon, and my employer is very happy to give me a reference. I enjoy being part of a team at work, and I very much like interacting with customers.

I have a portfolio with photos of some of the work I have done, and I hope you will give me the opportunity to show this to you at an interview.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely

Morgan Jones
