Barbering Full Time Course 16-19 for a brighter future

*Coming August 2019*

Male grooming is now a multi billion pound worldwide industry, this is reflected both in the number of new barber shops opening up and the number of hairdressing salons now offering traditional barbering services to their clients.

Then a Full Time Barbering Study Programme at Heart of England Training could be for you. Unlike many other training providers and colleges, you will be learning at our commercial training salon based in the centre of Rugby and you will be  working on real paying clients. This will give you invaluable real barbershop experience alongside building up your practical and theoretical knowledge so when the time comes for you to enter the world of work, your CV will stand out from the crowd .

Also, if you sign up to the course when you’re aged between 16-18, we’ll give you a free kit and uniform worth up to £150 to help you get started!

Your expected starting salary (once qualified) £12,000 – £16,000
