Who is this qualification for?

The VTCT Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Barbering (QCF) is a substantial vocational qualification for learners seeking a career as an employed and/or self-employed junior barber. This qualification is based on the Level 2 Barbering National Occupational Standards (NOS) and is recognised by the UK's leading professional association (The British Barbering Association - BBA) as being fit for purpose for preparing learners for a career as a junior barber.

Entry onto this qualification can be via previous attainment of a Level 1 qualification in hairdressing/barbering and/or a successful skills test and interview.

Why is this qualification most suitable?

This is one of two VTCT qualifications in barbering at Level 2. Whilst both qualifications qualify learners to become a junior barber, this qualification requires learners to work in a commercial barbering shop/salon whereby assessments must be carried out on real paying clients in line with commercial service times. In contrast, the VTCT Level 2 Diploma in Barbering (QCF) allows learners to gather evidence in a realistic working environment or real working environment without the need for fee paying clients.

The VTCT Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Barbering (QCF) is most suitable for learners seeking to work in, and develop their skills in a commercial setting, and can only be delivered by colleges that have, or have access to a 'real' barbers shop/salon, and not a realistic working environment
