Denman Donates Student Kits for Funded Barbering Learners

Published 26th Oct 2023 by PB Admin
Recently, Denman donated 'Jack Dean by Denman' barbering student kits to a new cohort of barbering learners at Mike Taylor Education in Poole.

A general lack of offering for apprenticeships in barbering means that students are forced into a choice between private courses, that are often premium priced and can lack real world training, or hairdressing college courses that lack a barbering focus.

Mike comments: “These nine students were falling between the cracks when it came to the training on offer. After years of petitioning and a change of local MP, I finally succeeded in securing funding for seven students. They were all worthy applicants and so eager to begin that I couldn’t just select seven, so we are funding two of them ourselves. The donation of the Denman student kits means that they have quality tools from the very start.”

The students will take English, Maths and wider learning along with their practical skills. Mike’s purpose is to ensure that when they have acquired their VRQ Level 2, they will be workplace ready and an asset to any barbershop who will help them progress further.
