Gordon Jackson - Trained to be a barber

Gordon says:

Having been a professional driver for over 40 years I found myself being made redundant in August 2020.  I thereafter decided to change course and retrain my skill-set to become a Barber which had been an ambition of mine.  With the help of East Ayrshire Works and Work Coach Sheila McFadyean, I enrolled at the Scottish Barber School in Glasgow and successfully completed an SVQ Level 2 in Gents Barbering.  I now work in a busy family run business called “Station Barbers” in Bishopton.  Sheila guided me through the entire process and constantly kept in touch to check I was achieving my goals.  I cannot thank her enough for helping me through this difficult time in the twilight years of my work life. 

If you are looking for help with training, finding employment or improve career opportunities, please don’t hesitate to contact the East Ayrshire Council Employability team on 01563 503000 or email employability@east-ayrshire.gov.uk
