Learning and Teaching MethodsAt Blackpool and The Fylde College we recognise that all students learn differently and for some it may be a return to the classroom following a break from formal learning. Our tutors work with you to ensure that their teaching methods support the way that you like to learn. One key teaching and learning method is that of demonstrations. Your tutors ensure that demonstrations are used whenever possible so you can see the practical skill being used so you can then practise the skill. You will work collaboratively with your peers in group work, presentations and within practical salon sessions. Following demonstrations you will then have hands on practical time where you will be learning the practical beauty skills. You will be required to model for your peers as well so you can experience the therapies first hand. In addition, you will also be expected to apply these skills to clients in our working salons. There will be dedicated individual/self-study time on your course which needs to be supported by your own study outside of College, using online development platforms such as Canvas, our virtual learning environment. E-learning is a key element of all our programmes and we also use a range of on-line apps to support, enhance and motivate learning. Your tutors will support you with these technologies and also in preparing for exams. The course is 1-2 days a week for 17 weeks and your tutor will guide you on independent study. Expert Tutors All staff involved in the delivery of adult education courses within the College are approved to teach the subjects and modules they deliver.
