Barbering Level 2/3 Diploma at Djanogly City Academy

Course description

This qualification allows you to develop skills essential to working in a barbers shop, such as forming good working relationships with clients and awareness of health and safety, as well as the specialist skills needed to carry out barbering services.

This is a pass or fail course. You will be assessed by continuous theory and practical assessments. The theory element is assessed by written assignments and end-of-unit tests. The practical assessments are performed in the salon on clients. All theory and practical work will be collated and presented in an evidence portfolio.

Course content

Units include monitoring health and safety, cut throat shaving and creative styling.

Entry requirements

For the Level 2 course you do not need to have studied this before, but you will need a minimum of 4 D grades at GCSE.


Assessment is carried out through practical observations, coursework and mandatory papers.

Future opportunities

The Level 3 qualification will lead to a work-ready standard of barbering. You could progress on to a Level 4 in management.
