DCG Success Stories
Brad is first pick for pro footballers after barbering apprenticeship
I did one day a week at Derby College doing my NVQ Level 2. It was good – my tutor was brilliant and she got us through it really well, no beating about the bush. She just got on with it. The hairstyles I didn't get in the salon, I could get at the college. There is only so much you can do in the shop as an apprentice, and you need to get your qualifications. She showed us how to run a shop, and I got a lot of the business side though my apprenticeship just by being in the shop. I could see how it was running.
