He said: “The barbering course exceeded my expectations and delivered in every way – and so did the tutors, pushing me to do the best that I can and always there with a helping hand when stuck.

“I advise anyone who wants to become a barber to jump on the course.”

The college’s apprentice co-ordinator Tracey Stammers said: “Jackson has a unique approach to barbering, he has a very distinctive style and character, which we worked with and he got a very pleasing outcome, achieving his apprenticeship with a majority of distinction grades.

“He now also has a promising career with Legends and Rebels, and I am sure this is just the beginning of a very successful career in barbering.”
