Groomed Academy Partners with Great British Barbering Academy

The Great British Barbering Academy (GBBA) announce an exciting new partnership with Groomed Academy in South Africa.

The GBBA, who work closely with Mike Taylor Education, are an award-winning, world renowned barbering training academy providing exceptional training both to those starting a career in barbering and those wishing to further their skills.

This partnership will bring together two award winning companies and enable Groomed Academy to offer budding barbering students an extraordinary opportunity in terms of education and employment to the existing provision that the students already receive.

Mike Taylor commented “The Great British Barbering Academy and Mike Taylor Education are thrilled to be collaborating exclusively with Groomed Academy. Quality is at the heart of what we do at the GBBA and after meeting Eric, owner of Groomed Academy, we are excited to see that he shares our vision.”

At the start of 2021, the GBBA and Mike Taylor Education launched their very own ‘oven ready’ online Education Zone which is currently used by colleges and training providers across the UK. Groomed Academy students will be the first students in South Africa to have exclusive access to the resources which will support them in developing lifelong skills in the industry.

Eric Way, owner and founder of Groomed Academy in South Africa, is delighted that this will expand the horizons for Groomed Academy students in terms of further education as well as international employment, adding to the career value that these exceptional courses provide.

Eric is a South African hairdressing industry icon who has won numerous awards in his career, including the Twincare International Gents Hairstylist of the Year 2018, the Twincare International Team Hairstylist of the Year 2019 and 2020, the Best Wahl Photographic Barber of the Year 2019, and the Best Manager / Owner of the Year at the Salon International Africa Awards 2020.
