BARBER COURSE – FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
This course is FULL TIME. We will be spending 4 days at the academy and 1 Day inside the salon. From our experience, you cannot become qualified as a barber on a part time course. Many of which are 8 weeks and 3 mornings a week. This will not suffice as a beginner barber course in 2020.
If you have some experience cutting hair and a full-time course does not suit your schedle, make sure to check out our 6 Month Development Programme.
At MENSPIRE ACADEMY our brand ambition is to revolutionise the standards of men’s hair across the industry, This course will adopt this same attitude. We are offering an NVQ level 2 in Barbering, this is a very prestigious certificate for beginners barbering and is backed by the worlds leading apprenticeship programme, CITY AND GUILDS.
YES, Our beginners course is designed to produce a junior stylist after 15 weeks of study. Of course, like anything it takes more than just 4 months to master something, But we believe that this course is the most revolutionary starting point for any beginner barber in Ireland.
First of all, Our course is 15 weeks full time, From our market research the longest course in Ireland except for this is only 10 weeks, and that’s part time.
Secondly, From our experience over the last 6 years of travelling internationally and teaching men’s hair. We have found that most beginner barbers have taken a course that is similar to what we see in Ireland, Part time and sometimes as low as 8 weeks. This generally leaves a student still unqualified and unable to earn money. This leaves a student in a position where they either have to invest in another course ( €3000 again) or to find an apprenticeship, which unfortunately doesn’t exist much anymore.
So at 15 weeks, FULL TIME at our hair academy. Our rate per day would actually be the same, except we are proposing a far higher standard of education, with enough time for the student to become comfortable as a barber and digest the information properly.
This is a career, not a course for your hobby, if you invest wisely from the start, you won’t need to buy twice.
We certainly can’t promise everyone a job, But if your a hard working, passionate student, the chances are we will offer you a job at one of our salons across Ireland or the UK.
We have had students come from one of our courses, to Educating with our International creative team across the globe. So the opportunities are endless with MENSPIRE.
MENSPIRE is a fast growing global brand, Renowned for its Technical advantage in the industry. Our brand has positioned itself at the front line of Men’s hairdressing over the last 6 years. This beginners course for barbers will reflect this from start to finish.
Our Dublin Director, Glenn McGoldrick. Was once a victim of a low level 8 week course, He was left confused and unqualified after spending a considerable amount of money on a course, He was then told by his first employer that he was still a year away from the standard in the city centre.
This is disheartening for students after being told they would be qualified. Unfortunately Glenn had to move his life to LONDON to receive the education he desired. This course is a personal ambition of his to raise the standards of Barbering in Ireland.
