If you are already qualified in Ladies Hairdressing or Theatrical and Media and want to acquire Barbering skills, this course could enhance your future career path. No previous experience is needed, however, a genuine interest in the industry is vital to success.

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.

Equipment Info

You will need a Barbering Kit – approximately £160 (All will be discussed on the first date of the course) for use in our professional salon
