Intensive Barbering Course


4 Weeks



The ultimate kick start into the world of barbering

Upon arrival at the academy you’ll’ be presented with the tools to build a career: an Andis clipper and trimmer, a scissor, comb and brush set and an apron and cutting cape. Over the next four weeks, our education team will help you develop the skills to take these tools out into the world and forge a future in one of the most exciting industries there is.

The barbering industry in the UK is currently booming. Men are becoming more fashion focused and once again indulging in a variety of services at barbershops. We traditionally associate the term “barbering” with clipper work and the “short back and sides” but the industry has changed. Modern barbers need to be incredibly versatile to cater to client’s needs.

"Thank you Sid for all that you do. It was a pleasure working with you and I'm looking forward to taking in as much as your knowledge as possible and working with you in the future. This course is worth it; I've learned so much!"

– Bobby Sirrell

“Outstanding academy! Staff are very welcoming, smart and professional. Really enjoyed the intensive course. I have learned all the skills needed to start my career. It's an experience I won't ever forget. They’ve all been very helpful and taught me some great stuff and as for Sid, what an INSPIRATION! Keep up the good work guys. I enjoyed every minute.”

– Natalie Marie

“After just one day of the intensive training course I was amazed how far I’d come. Sid and the team are great trainers and have incredible patience and understanding. It’s no wonder they won Barber Training Academy Of The Year.”

– James Kennedy

From scissor and clipper work to wet shaving and beard design, hair colouring to industry expert Kevin Hamm’s customer care seminar, our comprehensive curriculum has been developed to arm you with the skills and knowledge to thrive in the barbershop. Our education team will carefully guide you through the process as your confidence grows.

The final week of the course is dedicated to honing your skills in a real barbershop environment. Clients will be coming through the door asking for a variety of services and styles. From consultation to finished style, you’ll be responsible for catering to their needs. The final two days of the course will be assessed by our educators.
