This Barbering course covered all the knowledge and skills I needed to help me gain full employment when I finished. I was very nervous starting as a mature student however the teachers immediately put me at ease, and they work to the individuals needs on progression. there was so much more knowledge and skills covered than I expected, and these stood to me when I got a job. I would recommend this course as an ideal pathway to employment.
