The VTCT Level 2 Hair Professional Barbering Apprenticeship will enable you to shampoo and condition hair, cut hair using barbering techniques, style and finish hair, cut facial hair into shape and provide shaving services for men. You will be able to work with all hair types ranging from straight hair to very curly, wiry hair. You will also be able to carry out consultations with clients, demonstrate the professionalism, values, behaviours, communication skills and safe working practices associated with your role and be able to work without supervision to a high level of precision, with exceptional client care skills. You will be in the workplace the majority of the week putting your skills into practice and will come to college one day a week.
After The Course
You can progress onto the Level 3 Diploma in Barbering (FT or PT age dependant) ) or continue your employment as a Barber.
English And Maths
It is desirable to have English and Maths at Grade 4/Level 2 or above, but lower grades will be considered and discussed on application. Apprentices without these grades would need to study for a Level 2 qualification at block weeks on dates agreed with their Employer.
Teaching Learning and Assessment
You must demonstrate the behaviours and communication skills, safe working practices and the professionalism and values associated with your role and be able to work without supervision to a high level of precision, with exceptional client care skills. These transferable skills must be demonstrated throughout all units.
How Will I Be Assessed
Once you have achieved all mandatory units and external examinations (MCQ), you are able to claim for the Diploma for Hair Professionals (Barbering) which is a full qualification certificate. This can be used as evidence of the achievement for the gateway stage. This period during Gateway prepares you for your final EPA examination.
You will complete these qualifications as an employed apprentice in a real working environment. Learners are required to find employment in a Hair salon, prior to application ideally. The Employer must have Employer's Liability Insurance and the college will work with the Employer to make the necessary checks.
