Coventry College is reaching out to local barbers to help create the next cream of the industry crop.

The College is recruiting for a Barbering lecturer to deliver the Level 2 Certificate in Barbering course which kicks off at the College’s City campus in September.

Ideally, candidates should have barbering or salon experience and a teaching qualification for the new role.

The evening programme can help young people to gain the essential barbering skills they need to cut it in the industry and potentially set up their own business.

This exciting opportunity can help current barbers to recruit and train their future workforce and give them additional skills which fits around their own work commitments.

It’s also a chance for them to recruit the right calibre of staff for their own business.

Although Covid-19 has affected the hair and barbering industry, barbers are all now open again and are aiming to return to the levels of growth the sector was experiencing before the pandemic hit.

Barbering can open up career opportunities around the globe and also offers flexible hours and rewarding work in a creative industry.

Hair and Beauty Lecturer Jenny Spires said: “This is an exciting opportunity to join our Hair and Beauty department at our City campus.

“This part-time programme is an evening course so the role could appeal to someone who can still do their day job in a barbers but also has capacity to teach in an evening.

“It’s the perfect opportunity for barbers to help shape the next generation of talent by passing on the skills and knowledge they have gained themselves in the barbering world.”

The College has excellent hair and beauty facilities and its own commercial salon ‘Salon Fifty’ which is open to the public and gives learners hands-on experience with real life clients.

Jenny added: “We’re hoping that as a college in the heart of the city this opportunity will appeal to local barbers on the doorstep.

“This is a very rewarding role and will be a win-win for learners on the course and the successful candidate.”
