This City & Guilds technical certificate at City College Plymouth will give you the skills you need to work at a junior level in men’s hairdressing and barbering. It will cover basic barbering skills and is specifically designed to enable you to carry out a range of techniques in barbering and shaving. In our fully equipped salons you will learn barbering skills in cutting, creating patterns, styling, shaping and shampooing. You will also develop your skills in customer care and consultation, and health and safety.
You will study core and specialist units in client consultation, shampooing and conditioning, styling men’s hair, cutting men’s hair, cutting facial hair, and health and safety practices in the salon.
In our experience in order to be successful on this level of course you will need the following:
- four GCSEs at grades 3 (D) or above
- an NVQ Level 1 in Hairdressing
- equivalent qualifications or relevant work experience
Your practical applications will be assessed through observation, oral questioning, written assignments and online exams.
