Meet Tommy from Zak Grooming For Men

I enjoyed studying at TAFE SA and being surrounded by people with the same passion as me.

Studying at TAFE SA taught me the fundamental skills in barbering which I still use consistently every day in my working environment. It has given me opportunities to work in one of the best barber shops in Adelaide alongside talented barbers.

Employer Testimonial

“It’s great to see TAFE SA providing education and a formal qualification for men’s barbering and styling. I have put my apprentice Tim Hutton through the TAFE SA Cert III in Barbering, and he came out with great basic skills in men’s cutting that I haven’t seen before in an apprentice. We are very proud to be the first barbershop to have put through and qualify an apprentice, and we’re about to put our second apprentice Josiah Sharp through the course.”
