If you are a year 11 student applying for this programme, we will compare your GCSE results with the minimum target grades set for you by your school. This will help us decide whether this is your most suitable programme of study. Other students, including those from outside the area, will have an opportunity to discuss their qualifications and experience to make sure they too are studying at the right level. For some programmes, we might need to observe you carrying out certain practical tasks before we can make you an offer.

Essential Skills – English and Maths

If you achieve a grade 3 in GCSE Maths or English you will have to work towards re-sitting these subjects as part of your main study programme. At B&FC, this won’t delay your career journey because you’re working towards these subjects at the same time as your chosen subject.

Teaching and Learning Methods

Our expert tutors understand that everyone learns in different ways so they use a range of teaching methods to enable everyone to achieve their potential. A key method used is demonstration, which allows you to observe the practical application of skills before having a go yourself.

The programme combines group work, presentations, practical salon sessions and dedicated self-study periods. The practical sessions will involve you modelling for your peers so you can experience the therapies first hand. You will also have an opportunity to apply your skills to real clients in our commercial salons.

E-learning is a key element of all our programmes and we also use a range of online apps to support, enhance and motivate learning. Your tutors will support you with these technologies and also in preparing for exams.

Practical sessions total 10 hours a week, with an additional hour devoted to beauty therapy theory. Sixteen to 18-year-olds will need to spend extra time studying English and maths – 1.5 hours a week for each Functional Skill or 3.8 hours for each GCSE. We will calculate and confirm this to you at enrolment.

We recommend you also spend at least 3 hours a week undertaking independent study (outside of College) to support your timetabled sessions.

When you start your programme we will assign you a progress tutor, who will meet with you each week to provide ongoing support, monitor your progress and work with you to set learning targets that will ensure your success.
