The students have been split into two ‘bubble’ groups to create social distancing and safe capacity numbers attending each day and as with all professional barber shops, the necessary Personal Protective Equipment and Health and Safety measures are in place.
Under these measures , the students have been able to continue client bookings and further develop their barbering skills. Credit is due to the students for their hard work and the agility they have shown as they have engaged with new ways of learning, including remote online delivery one day per week via Microsoft Teams.
As they enter the final month of this cohort’s training, some of the students have shared fantastic news that they have already secured jobs in barber shops – an amazing achievement at any time, but particularly during the current pandemic.
Students are also now fully equipped to handle the challenges they will face as a result of Covid-19 in the working environment.
