Hairdressers and barbers must be able to work with all hair types ranging from straight hair to very curly, wiry hair.

Five GCSEs at 9–3/A*–E (Including English and Maths).

 

There are two distinctly different job roles within this occupational profile: Hairdresser and Barber. Hairdressers will be able to shampoo and condition hair, cut hair using a range of techniques, style and finish hair to create variety of looks, and colour and lighten hair for ladies and men. Barbers will be able to shampoo and condition hair, cut hair using barbering techniques, style and finish hair, cut facial hair into shape and provide shaving services for men.

You will attend College on a day-release basis during term-time for the duration of your programme with us, to gain knowledge and develop some practical skills.

 

Apprentices must meet the knowledge, skills, and behaviours as defined within the standard. All apprentices must take an independent assessment at the end of their training to assess their ability and competence in their job role.
