For those who wish to work and pursue a career in barbering, this course provides the necessary skills and knowledge to become occupationally competent as a junior barber. You do not require any previous qualifications in hairdressing to embark on this course and will achieve a level 2 Diploma in Barbering on successful completion.
You are required to attend College for one day per week, therefore commitment, good attendance and strong organisational skills are required. Emphasis is on graded practical assessments, assignment deadlines and external tests.
This course will also include an evening commercial session once skills are developed and additional opportunities within the week may become available within the College salon to maximise commercial practice under the guidance of the barbering teaching team.
Work-based – if you are currently working in a hair salon, this qualification is also available through work-based learning and apprenticeship routes.
