Our groups are ran with approximately 10 students which means students receive lots of our tutors attention and support and guidance through their course.

Level 1 hair & barbering course fee is £600.00 plus £60.00 admin fee however funding is available depending on students circumstances.  Eg, If students are claiming income support, Job Seekers Allowance or Employment Support Allowance or if they are aged 23 years or below and don't hold a level 2 qualification or above or equivalent in any subject then the £600.00 course fee would be funded leaving them to only pay the £60.00 admin fee on enrolment.

Key Fund - Light Water Valley Day arranged by the Study Programme Students!

Members of our staff receive training to become Key Fund Facilitators and to be able to tap into funding through the Key Fund Scheme.
The funding provides investments to social enterprises based or working in the North East of England. 
Students will put together a proposal which includes all costings etc showing all their findings and searches used.  The students then face a panel from Key Fund and pitch their idea to be able to tap into funding and present their proposal in hope they will receive funding.
Our students this year chose to visit to Light Water Valley!  They gathered total numbers, costings of entrance, bus hire, food and refreshments etc and pitched their idea to the Key Fund Board.
The funding was approved and the students had a fantastic time!
See below for some photos from their day!

Adult Learning Barbering students

Our Adult Learning Barbering groups are progressing so well and producing some fantastic work.  A regular supply of models helps the students to gain confidence and gain more experience.

Our students begin on level 1 which lasts approx 4-6 months and they then progress to level 2 and now we're arranging a date for level 3 to commence too.  Providing all three levels gives the students a fantastic progression route which also builds the esteem, confidence and their skills.

Here's some photos of our current students -

Please don't hesitate to contact us for any information about our courses available or if you would like to join us :)

Study Programme Students - Create an Image unit :)

Our Study Programme students had a fab day on their Create an Image unit with some great ideas.

The students have worked so hard completing the images, see the following photos of their work-

The students pick a theme and then use the skills they have learnt during the course to complete their chosen look.  The students really enjoy this unit, there's always a lovely atmosphere in the salon with all of them waiting to see the finished projects :)
