The journey began in 1999 above a supermarket in Doncaster’s busy market place, with only 4 staff and 18 learners, the two Directors; Sally Finlay-Marsh and Diane Logan wanted to create a training organisation that was passionate about the Hair and Beauty Industry and high quality training, but also passionate about its learners! Twenty years later they offer places annually to 200 applicants for Traineeship, Apprenticeship and Advanced Learner Loan provision. They have two state of the art training centres in Rotherham and Doncaster and are supported by over 100 local Employers who offer to support our young people through giving work placements or by employing our Apprentices.
We aim to:
Provide a world class quality of service, training and support
Promote the importance of a safe and healthy environment for all
Offer outstanding opportunities for all
Meet the training and skills needs required from the hair and beauty Industry employers of South Yorkshire
Inspiring and continuously motivating young minds is a difficult job, but someone has to do it! At Oracle we work with local employers who understand the potential of our learners and are willing to provide them with valuable work. They further develop the right pathway for them which could be anything from hairdressing to make-up. The journey of a learner is not always easy, it takes hard work and dedication and we are there every step of the way to offer the support and guidance needed to get through the process and enjoy their training.
Oracle is government funded through the SFA and match funded by ESF for our post 16 provision. As a funded organisation we are quality assured through the Common Inspection Framework by Ofsted.
