A Foundation Apprenticeship in Barbering has helped turn around Gavin Williams’ life which hit rock bottom following his father’s death. Gavin, 20, from Llandegfan, who is self-employed at Rubens Male Grooming Salon in LlanfairPG, fought drug addiction to secure a barbering career which has transformed his life.

He has completed a Foundation Apprenticeship in Barbering delivered by Busnes@ LlandrilloMenai and is progressing to an apprenticeship, which will enable him to offer a shaving service using a traditional barber blade and share the skills with other apprentices.

“The barbering apprenticeship has changed my life for the better. It has improved my skills, work ethic, professionalism and communication skills. I could never have imagined being where I am today without the apprenticeship.”
