Train and Become the Best

Gould Barbers is offering a flexible apprenticeship programme to enable aspiring barbers to work across the locations at which we operate. The 12 month programme involves working and learning in a specific shop of your choice (subject to availability) together with intense training placements at our dedicated training Academy in King’s Lynn.

As the UK’s largest barbering brand we will teach you all aspects of barbering to enable you to become shop floor ready and cutting customers’ hair to the exceptional standards that they have come to expect from us.

You will gain a Level 2 qualification in barbering and full practical preparation for a successful career in barbering. Ongoing work opportunities with Gould Barbers then await.

We want our Barbers new & old to create incredible careers for themselves. We hope to welcome you to the Gould Barber Family

1. Academy Training

Our apprenticeship starts with an initial intensive course based at our King’s Lynn Academy. This ensures that the most basic skills are thoroughly grasped as rapidly as possible.

Within a matter of days you will be cutting customers’ hair in the Academy, and within weeks you will be getting that opportunity within a shop. Within a few months your skills and confidence will have grown so that you will be able to look after customers increasingly independently and charging full price for haircuts.

Your apprenticeship will end with your final assessment and the awarding of your qualification and you will feel confident to progress with your career, hopefully still with Gould Barbers.

We take on new apprentices on a monthly basis. Applicants should have a minimum of grade 4 (C) in both Maths and English.

2. Real Shop Floor Experience

The initial 7 week course is followed by supervised training in one of our shops and is likely to lead to a self-employed opportunity to work in a Gould Barbers shop.

In our shops you will develop your skills being guided by, and working alongside, our most experienced barbers.
