If you want an exciting and varied career, barbering could be for you. There is a demand across the country for skilled and qualified barbers, and employers increasingly need committed, well trained and enthusiastic workers. You will work as part of a team in running a salon by shampooing, conditioning, styling, cutting, colouring and reception work and therefore gaining valuable employability skills.
Typical Job Roles
To start the course you must be employed in a relevant environment for a minimum of 30 hours per week. You should ideally have a minimum of 3 GCSEs at grade 3 or above (or equivalent) including Maths and English (grade 3+).
Method Of Delivery
Apprentices attend College one day per week, and work for their employer the rest of the time. The apprenticeship takes one year to complete. The apprentice may need to attend extra sessions on an additional day for Maths or English.
End Point Assessment
You will build up a portfolio, which is a collection of examples or evidence of your work that demonstrates your skills and ability, such as a work diary, photos, statements from your employer and colleagues and examples of completed tasks.
