MADE, The Academy for Modern Barbering turns 2 in April.
The Academy, a commercial venture run by Glasgow Kelvin College in partnership with Rebel Rebel Barbers, has gone from strength to strength since its launch in April 2018, and has had nearly 50 students come through its doors – eager to embark on a new career and vocation.
We could not be prouder of each of our students, both past and present and what they have achieved at the Academy, and beyond, as they make the move into the barbering world.
Our Academy is what it is today, and we believe a lot of this is down to our students. Because of their hard work and dedication to their craft - we want to celebrate them as we turn 2.
To kick off our 2nd birthday month, we will be highlighting some of our past student’s success stories on our social media pages, with a focus on their transition from the Academy into industry. Each of our students has taken a huge leap to do this course and over 95% are now working as barbers or in salons, which is a true credit to them all.
We’ll also be celebrating all things ‘2’ as we highlight some great stories from past and present students, from the two brothers excelling in our current course, to the lovely news of graduate, Ross Cochran-Brash becoming a dad to twins recently.
The Academy’s success has not gone unnoticed as it is in the running for the ‘Best Training School’ at this years Scottish Hair and Beauty Awards. Voting will re-open at a later date, but keep a lookout on our social pages to see how you can place your vote and support our students!
Follow us on Instagram and Facebook - just search for ‘madebarberingacademy’ to keep up with our celebrations and for all things MADE.
We wish all our students, graduates and friends in the industry well during this difficult and unprecedented time and look forward to the day when we re-open the Academy doors.
