Our Barbering training provides the ideal platform for a career in a barbering salon.

Each of our centres has an industry-standard purpose-built training salon to help learners develop their knowledge and skills, as well as their confidence, before going on a placement with one of the local professional barbering salons with whom we work.

The Study Programme training starts at Level 1 in the first year, progressing to levels 2 and 3 thereafter. These higher qualifications can either still be within the Study Programme or, more likely, within an employed Apprenticeship framework.

Level 1
This is an introduction to the industry, based on assisting technical staff in the salon. You’ll work toward an NVQ Certificate in Hairdressing & Barbering awarded by VTCT, which is delivered through a mixture of salon and classroom based learning, supplemented by a work placement.

Level 2
Level 2 is junior level and covers basic skills and knowledge, working towards an NVQ Diploma in Barbering awarded by VTCT. It is the minimum standard required to work effectively in a barbering salon.

Level 3
Level 3 is the target qualification for anyone wanting to be a truly proficient professional in their chosen field. It expands upon the basic skills of Level 2 and is aimed at those wishing to progress towards the top level of their profession. It is delivered within an employed Apprenticeship framework.
