Our 12-week Beginners course consists of 12 weekly sessions, (1 session per week) and will prepare you with the skills to trade as a barber full time once you complete the course.
There are 8 spaces available on this course; each student will have their station and chair to work from and can use the entire duration of the course.
You will be able to gain essential practical skills with as much guidance as required from our master barbers.
Demonstrations and skills during this course are exhibited by our master barber and director, Tonie (@Tonie_Leo on Instagram).
The classes take place at our new Jax Academy Home – Street Lane, LS8 2AL. This course will take place at 6:30 pm onwards, thus allowing students to continue with current employment.
We are now able to offer NVQ's as part of our education programme at Jax. The NVQ option will work in the same manner as the current 12 week course, except there will be a little more written theory work to complete, there will also be a cost to upgrade to the NVQ Level 2 certificate, the cost for the NVQ course will be £3,999. Simply click on the date that you would like to start and then click either 12 week course or NVQ 12 week course. Please note, if you do not pass your final exam, you will be given an opportunity to re-take.
If additional information is required, contact @jaxbarbershops on Instagram or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Will I be able to do the course if I have never cut hair before?
Yes- we have a lot of complete beginners attend
What if I struggle to get a model?
We can help by advertising on our Instagram, however its always better to cut someone that you know whilst learning. We can always offer manakin heads too but its extremely important to try your best to get a model.
Do you offer refunds if I can no longer attend that date.
We do not offer refunds, however we can accommodate by changing your chosen course date (we will not be able to do this once your course has started)
What if I fail my NVQ exam?
You will have opportunities to resit the NVQ exam.
I can't afford all the money at once what can I do?
We advise applying for PayPal credit- they offer 0% interest free credit for 4 months. We can also look at splitting the payment into more manageable chunks but the whole balance must be paid before you can start.
What will I learn?
You will learn all skills required to be a barber, including fades and cut throat line ups.
You will also be shown how to properly sanitise your work area and your equipment as well as health and safety, client consultations etc.
How does the course work?
There will be 1 session per week for 10 weeks, all practical skills are covered in these sessions. Homework tasks (mainly haircuts) will also be given in order to build on your skills.
If you have chosen the NVQ option there will also be some theory workbooks to complete
Why has it changed from 10 to 12 weeks?
This is is because we feel we want to ensure that all of our students graduate our academy at the highest standard possible! Whilst we pride ourselves on bringing the best quality education to our students already, we do feel that practice makes perfect so we have added those extra sessions to ensure our students are given the extra sessions with our skilled tutors with guidance and feedback.
This change will take affect from the December dates*
