The VTCT (ITEC) Level 2 Award in Infection Prevention (COVID-19) for Hairdressing and Barbering Services is a knowledge-based qualification aimed at hairdressers and barbers, who need to understand the COVID-19 infection prevention methods required in the salon/barbershop to maintain high levels of health and safety in the provision of their services to clients.
In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, VTCT have developed a number of sector-specific, Government regulated COVID-19 Infection Prevention qualifications for different industries. These Level 2 awards are now prerequisites for several qualifications that we deliver for barbering, complementary therapies, and beauty. These are mandatory and are completed at the start of the course during the induction process. They are included within the main qualification fee that you are studying or can be completed on their own for a small cost.
