Barbering Professional Standards ApprenticeshipSuitable for first time entrants to barbering from the age of 16 years old.
Here at Philips Hair Academy, we offer the brand-new Barbering Professional Standards Apprenticeship, which has become available from May 2017. The apprenticeship includes the City and Guilds Level 2 diploma for Barbering Professionals qualification, which is based on employer needs and is studied whilst working as an employed apprentice in a real work environment.
On this apprenticeship, you will learn the core knowledge and skills needed to become a competent Barber. There are six units to be completed, which are:
• Shampoo and Conditioning
• Shaving Services
Whilst training one day per week at one of our hair academies, along with your employer’s commitment to provide in-salon training, our highly experienced and passionate team of educators will enable you to achieve the confidence to work as an effective team member in a commercial barbering environment.
After you have completed all the on-programme assessment requirements for your apprenticeship, including Maths and English, you will have arrived at the Gateway; the final element of the programme where you will be entered for your end-point assessment. Like an industry trade test; this assessment will test your knowledge and practical skills in a barbering environment and be examined by an impartial external assessor. If you are successful, you will be awarded a Pass or Distinction and have completed your apprenticeship starting you on your career path as a Barbering Professional.
