Hiya
I dont know if this will help but
Im at central college in the town and they do a full time barbering course which runs for 1 year. They do a few night classes, Im in tomorrow I could check if there are any available for you? Dont know if you want to go to a college though or do it through something else, but I'll find out anyway

Shame I am not closer to you, (in Liverpool). My forte is barbering. I have seen the way it is taught in college and the length of time. Fine if you are starting from scratch. I think most hairdressers would like to do barbering but are afraid of using clippers, scissor over comb technique etc. They could pick it up quickly if shown just a few good tips. I have often thought of offering my services at salons to brush peoples skills up on barbering.

Barbering - 25-01-09, 12:59 PM

Hi, I am starting a hairdressing course at caledonian therapy academy, i have done all my beauty stuff there. My friend has enrolled on their barbering course which starts at end of feb. Its over 12 weeks in glasgow think they might do it part time as well but best to contact them. Award Winning Beauty Training, Beauty Courses, Beauty Courses Glasgow, Beauty Training Glasgow, Holistic Courses - Glasgow OR Saks also offer one in Glasgow.

hope this helps.

Hi the one at Clydebank is an introduction to Barbering not a level 2 qualification. See Courses Clydebank Glasgow

My friend enrolled and then cancelled when she found out.

Saks contact is customerservices@saks.co.uk think its about 3000 for the full qualification. Caledonian Therapy is Louise@ctacademy.co.uk think its about 1500. Also there is a barbering college in perth, will try fine out the name??

The Clydebank college one is a good introduction I think but you wont be qualified to work afterwards :-(

james watt college in greenock do barbering (close for you being in dunoon) but it wont start up again until aug/sept and again thats only 1 evening per week.. and im not 100% sure if thats a certificated course - its not advertised on their website or in their prospectus, but I am a student there and know that they do run a barbering evening course
