Advanced Apprenticeship in Barbering | Walsall College

Advanced Apprenticeship in Barbering

An Apprenticeship is a great way of developing the skills and gaining the experience you need to progress in a chosen career. This integrated framework provides those employed within the Hairdressing industry or wishing to be employed within the Hairdressing industry an opportunity to follow a programme of study, developing key skills and competencies at an advanced level.

Over the course of the programme Apprentices will work towards the completion of a NVQ Level 3 Diploma in Barbering. Apprentices will take several mandatory untis covering barbering techniques, safety procedures, promotion of products and services and the provision of consultancy services. They will also choose from a range of optional units.

Homework or private study is required.
