Can you give me some course information?

This course covers all aspects of commercial and creative barbering. Upon successful completion of this course students will be awarded a full City & Guilds International Diploma in Barbering which is recognised and respected in over 120 countries worldwide including the cruise ship industry. Many of our students study Hairdressing and Barbering together to maximise their work opportunities.

The training is “hands on”, practising with clients in the Academy’s salon, allowing you to study the theory at home. It’s nothing like school. This is exciting news for young and mature age students who hate the idea of “going to school”. Many of our students study hairdressing and beauty or hairdressing and barbering together to maximise their work opportunities.

Our Graduates

Many of the Academy’s graduates prefer to own their own business and, as they have gained great salon experience and confidence throughout their training, purchase or open their own barbershops or salons immediately upon graduating.  It is the desire of most of our graduates to eventually become self-employed. The Academy’s training, which promotes independence very early in the course, provides the best possible foundation to achieve your career goal.
