Progression Options

On successful completion of the course, you may choose to progress on to the advanced Level 3 Diploma in Barbering. Alternatively, you could move into employment or self-employment in a salon or barber shop.


The course has given me an insight into what I could do within the industry when I graduate, and I particularly enjoy the open clinic sessions when we work on the general public.
