Course Overview

In association with Mike Taylor Education we are excited to present our new barbering qualifications based out of our new state of the art barbering academy.

The Barbering NVQ Level 2 is a nationally recognised qualification ideal for anyone who is serious about a career in barbering. During this course you will complete a minimum of 150 haircuts on live clients guaranteeing that you will gain real barbershop cutting experience and leave ready for the workplace.

Be taught by Mike himself, chairman of the British Barbering association and the first ever master craftsman barber in the UK. We pride ourselves on a provision that will fully prepare you for industry taught and designed by experts in their fields.

Shampoo, condition and treat the hair and scalp
Develop and maintain your effectiveness at work
