INTRODUCTION

Tony Copeland, co-founder of British Master Barbers (Europe's largest barbering alliance) and Northern Ireland Ambassador Sam Arthur, have created

“Investors in Education - Barbering in UK Prisons”.

After recently launching at HMP Hydebank Wood and HMP Maghaberry, the team have been approached by other prisons to visit them, Using their experience and techniques to raise standards of educators and help educate offenders in barbering as an alternative to returning to crime or addiction.

Helping students seek employment and prevent re-offending, they have created a “ Get that Job!” trade test competition and also a system to review the tutor’s potential to prepare their students for a job in the barbering industry to the highest standards.
