The VTCT Barbering Course offered recently at Fife College’s St Brycedale Campus, in Kirkcaldy, lasted eleven weeks and enabled students, on successful completion, to gain a VTCT Level 2 in Barbering qualification.
It also allowed students to study various barbering techniques, both traditional and modern, and gain practical experience crucial to succeed in today’s competitive industry.
The course was led by Master Craftsman Barber and Educator, Tony Haresign, who also owns Esquire Barbershop in Anstruther. Said Tony: "It is a difficult course, with high standards, so all of the students who completed the course should be extremely proud of their achievements."
Tony has previously provided a great deal of support to the College by attending various College events including a special exhibition event held at the St Brycedale Campus in February where he put on interesting and informative demonstrations for the students. He added: “I would also like to thank our industry links Denman and Bona Fide Pomade for their continued support."
Fiona Craig, Curriculum Manager for Hairdressing at Fife College is thrilled with the students’ success and is looking forward to seeing an increase in barbering courses at the College in the near future. Said Fiona: “I see this as a growth market and would like to promote certificated barbering courses, delivered by qualified barbering lecturers, in the future.”
