  1. Hi,
    I’m currently supporting a young man aged 19 who wants to learn hairdressing with you. He is in receipt of Income Support and is entitled to receive this until he is 21 provided he remains in full-time, non-advanced education.
    Do any of your training courses fit into this catergory?
    Also, if somebody who is currently on JSA and wishes to apply via the apprenticeshipe route, how many hours a week would they be working/learning for on average? Do you identify work-based opportunities for them or do they need to find their own? Who do they receive their wages from and are they paid weekly, fortnightly or monthly? If they are just starting out, do they receive the minimum apprenticeship rate if they are still in their teens?

  38. Hello I am 19 years of age and currently working part time whilst still in receipt of universal credit, I read that you do night time courses for your level 2 barbering and I am interested in this as I began an apprenticeship in hairdressing in September and found that I would like to switch to barbering as I was more interested in this, could you send me some more information about the course?

  39. Good Morning,

    Can you please give me some more information regarding your NVQ Level 2 Barbering course?

    I am currently out of work and will be receiving JSA but am concerned that if I do decide to apply for this course, I will be pushed to find a ‘permanent’ job by the government even though in training.

    I am 32 and looking to find another path in a different sector of work to what I have been doing for the past 10 years.

    I look forward to your reply.

    Kind Rgds

    Laura x

    1. The courses are rolling so have no specific start dates and there are different classes on different days to suit everyone – you can call 01517096770 for more information

  41. Hi, I’m looking to gain my nvq level 3 in hairdressing as I’m already qualified to nvq level 2, I don’t work currently but I’m looking into going mobile to help work around my small children as I need to go back to work but my daughter is only 2 and It wouldn’t be worth putting her in child care to work in a salon. Would I be able to do this course whilst being mobile or do you have to be employed in a salon. Thanks Louise.

  42. Hi! I’m just enquiring about the ‘Hairdressing Advanced Training-Level 3.’ I am really interested in perusing this course however I am not currently employed within a salon, with being a mum of one I wanted to train first before starting work. Is there anyway I can still apply or will I need salon employment? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

  43. Hi, my daughter who is 22years old is looking at a new career in barbering, she is employed at the moment , I also own my own salon which I could employ her at whilst she trains, could you tell me which days she would be with you in the week and whether there will be a cost to her. thank you carys

    1. Your daughter can do the class room learning course which will get her Level 2 NVQ in Barbering that takes 12 months to complete attending one day a week – we have taster sessions where she will just come in to the practical class for 4 to 6 weeks to see that the course is definitely for her before making any commitments. Because your daughter is employed this course would cost her £840 which is payable over four installments of £210 (first installment due on day of sign up) and once a month for three months after. Or if she would prefer to do the apprenticeship it will be free to her because she is under 24, the apprenticeship gives her the same qualification but lasts 23 months and she will need to be in paid employment for a minimum 16 hours a week and our conjunction company Total People will need to come out to your salon before sign up to do a Health & Safety check.

  44. Am 18 years of age and very keen in a barbering career very instrested in the course use are running i wont disapoint and am eagar to learn new things could use please email me a comtact number
