These are only basic guidelines and there are many more possibilities. You should speak to our customer services team so we can help you choose the right barbering course which will be suitable for your requirements on 0800 118 5021.
Q. I do have some barbering experience, are your courses still suitable for me ?
A. If you have some knowledge and experience of barbering we recommend you take our courses with private tuition, this allows you to skip certain modules which will not be beneficial to you. For example, our fast track barbering courses in group classes will start from the very basics such as how to hold the scissors, clippers, comb etc... If you have been cutting for a while you will probably already have these basic skills and therefore you will benefit by taking the course on a private basis where we can customise the modules and adjust to your learning needs.
Q. I am a hairdresser and want to add barbering to my skills, which course is suitable for me ?
A. Any of our courses will be suitable for you. Most hairdressers choose our 6 day fast track barbering course. If you want to learn more advanced skills such as advanced fading techniques or celebrity styling then you should speak to our team so we can advise you on the best option for you.
Q. I want to open my own barbering shop, which course is suitable for me ?
A. If you want to open your own barber shop immediately after completing the course without gaining any further practice or experience then we recommend you take either our 6 Week Fast Track Barbering Course or our 12 Week Fast Track Barbering Course.
If you will be gaining more experience and perfecting your skills under the supervision of an experienced barber for a short while on completion of your training with Barbering School then you could take our 2 Week Fast Track Barbering Course.
Our 3 day and 6 day fast track barbering course are not recommended if you are planning to open your own barber shop in the near future.
Q. I am unsure if I should choose group classes, private or customised ?
A. Group classes are the most cost effective option and many people benefit from working together with other like minded people. In some situations group classes may be unsuitable, for example, if you have special learning needs or if you already have some experience in barbering then it might be better to take a private class.
Private classes are ideal if you get distracted by other people and want to focus 100% with just you and the tutor. You may also choose private classes for other reasons.
Customised classes are designed to work around you, the dates and times of the course can be adjusted to fit around your schedule. These classes are more expensive but offer the best flexibility and come with private tuition.
If you are still not sure which option is best for you, speak to our customer services team on freephone 0800 118 5021.
Q. Will I receive a certificate on completion of a barbering training course ?
A. Yes all our courses come with a certificate on completion of the course.
Q. Do I need to bring my own equipment ?
A. For our evening courses you must bring your own equipment or purchase it from us on arrival (subject to availability, please pre-order where possible). For our fast track courses we provide all the equipment that you will need to train with but If you already have your own barbering tools you may bring them along but this is not mandatory.
Q. Do I need to provide any models ?
A. No you do not. We provide all the models for you to practice on.
Q. How many models will I practice on ?
A. We try to ensure you practice on a minimum of 4 models per day. Ideally we will try to provide you with 5-8 models each day where possible.
Q. Are there any hidden fee's ?
Q. Can I attend the training school before I book a course ?
A. Unfortunately you cannot attend any of our training schools without a confirmed booking. We are a small independent training provider and we pride ourselves on providing quality teaching by experienced barbering tutors. Our course locations are staffed only by our tutors who are busy dedicating their time and attention to the students they are teaching. It would be unfair to the paying students to have their training time interrupted by visitors. You should bare in mind we are not a large institution like your local college who may offer open days/evenings before you choose to enrol on a course. You would need to make a decision based on the information provided on our website and after speaking with our helpful customer services team who can answer all your questions and provide you with additional information.
