The British Barbers' Association (BBA) is encouraging barbers to sign up to its free membership scheme so that the industry can speak 'as one'. The association finds itself increasingly taking the lead on a raft of initiatives that will affect the industry now and into the future and we invite you to join with us
The BBA has worked directly with Habia to develop National Occupational Standards - that form the basis of all government recognised qualifications - through membership of its forums and working groups, influencing the creation of future of qualifications in line with the views of the barbering industry and the wider BBA network so that they meet employer and business needs.
Likewise, with Apprenticeship Trailblazers, the BBA is supporting the development group through its members, expertise and forums, and ensuring that proposed 'trade tests' and assessments meet the barbering industry's requirements, are truly employer-led and are relevant to businesses of all sizes. It's a really exciting time for the barbering industry, and the BBA is right at the heart of all the changes.

As well as having their say on the latest training developments, BBA can also access a range of benefits including:
