Where will it take me?

Following on from successful completion of this course you can progress onto either an NVQ or VRQ at Level 3 in Barbering or alternatively you may choose to consider a Level 2 qualification in Women’s Hairdressing.

Course Assessment Method

Assessment is continuous throughout the academic year and you will complete treatments on peers and clients alike.
