As we are a City & Guilds Centre, on successful completion of your course, you will receive your internationally recognised City & Guilds qualification, giving you the freedom and peace of mind to know that you are able to work within the industry, without having to pay for any more courses or exams afterwards, and also knowing that you will be able to gain employment and be insured from the moment you complete.

We have a variety of courses which range from the Level 2 and Level 3 City & Guilds Certificate which is run 3 days a week for 10 weeks, giving you the opportunity to practice in between lessons.  This will enable you to gain experience, and if you face any problems you will have the opportunity to address these at the next lesson, also giving you the chance to cover your case studies before your final exam.

It can also be arranged for you to gain invaluable experience by attending the MBF Barbers Salon and watching our expert Barbers at work. Our specialist short courses allow you to develop your skills and extend your knowledge within the industry and can be tailor made for you.

Unlike other training schools, as soon as you are enrolled and have paid your deposit we will send you the relevant training manual, whereby you can read up on your course before you arrive, giving us more time to concentrate on the practical side of the course.  On your first day of training you will be provided with a kit which will enable you to start practicing from home.

We are available via e-mail or phone to answer any questions or problems you may have or encounter during, or after your training.  We look forward to you enrolling with us and helping you to become the best barber you can be.
