Who is this qualification for?
The VTCT Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Barbering is a technical level qualification for learners seeking a career as an employed and/or self-employed barber. This qualification is based on barbering National Occupational Standards (NOS) and is recognised by the UK's lead barbering professional association (British Barbering Association - BBA) as being fit for purpose for preparing learners for a career as a senior barber. Learners should hold a Level 2 qualification in barbering prior to undertaking this qualification.
Why is this qualification most suitable?
This qualification forms part of a suite of VTCT barbering qualifications. This qualification is of similar size to the VTCT Level 3 Diploma in Barbering Studies. Whilst both qualifications provide the knowledge and skills to work in the barbering/men's hairdressing industry, this qualification is more suited for learners wanting to specialise as a traditional barber. This qualification also requires learners to work in a commercial barbershop/salon whereby assessments must be carried out on real paying clients in line with commercial service times. In contrast, the VTCT Level 3 Diploma in Barbering Studies and VTCT Level 3 Diploma in Barbering focus on men's hairdressing skills and can be achieved through gathering evidence in a college's realistic working environment without the necessity for real paying clients.
Hence, the VTCT Level 3 Diploma in Barbering (is 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' barbershop/salon, and not a realistic working environment.
