Designed to develop the knowledge and skills that are required to provide professional barbering services, this specialist qualification will see you develop a high level of occupational ability and provide you with a sound platform from which to progress to further vocational qualifications. In addition, you will need to have good communication skills, excellent personal presentation and an ability to cope with a heavy workload.
The course is split between studying the science and theory side of the subject and the practical ability. The practical sessions will consist of a tutor-led workshop where the tutor will demonstrate a skill and you will practise the skill on a head block. Ultimately, you will work as part of a commercial salon where clients will be booked in. This is when you will be assessed.
You will be continually assessed and produce a small portfolio to demonstrate your skills and knowledge. The portfolio includes written evidence together with graded practical observations.
As you’ll be working in our professional salon, we ask you to purchase the following to create a sharp and polished environment for our valued clients:
All will be discussed on the first date of the course.
