Our comprehensive training programme comprises an 8 week course based in our King’s Lynn (Norfolk) Academy followed by a further 8 weeks (approximately) of supervised training in one of our shops.
The initial 8 week training programme is a Government (ESFA) approved Occupational Traineeship in Barbering, with Level 2 certification (City & Guilds) in the core modules of Barbering, Clipper Cutting, Scissor Cutting, Style & Finish Hair & Client Consultation. Accommodation in King’s Lynn can be arranged.
Continuation into the second phase of training on the shop floor of one of our shops is likely to lead to a self-employed opportunity to work in a Gould Barbers shop, subject to availability and performance during training.
For 18-24 year olds the full course cost (£3,500) can be fully funded under the Government’s Traineeship programme making the course absolutely free to the trainee. Such young people can also continue to receive existing benefits such as Universal Credit whilst undertaking the Traineeship.
Full training cost, including 8 weeks (estimated) shop training - £3,500.
Payment terms can be arranged.
