Teaching and Learning Methods

At Blackpool and The Fylde College we recognise that all students learn differently. 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 practical hairdressing skills. You will be required to model for your peers as well so you can experience the services 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 programme which needs to be supported by your own study out of the College learning environments. E-learning is also a key element of all our courses and will involve you using our Moodle platform for independent study and learning.

Within the curriculum we also use a range of online apps to support, enhance and motivate learning. Your tutors will support you with new technologies used in the classroom.

Your tutors will support you in preparing for your examinations alongside your own responsibility for your learning.

Over the academic year, you will be required to complete the following hours of study:

Work Placement: a minimum of 20 hours
Independent Study: a minimum of 220 hours

  • Main programme of 385 hours
  • Maths - maximum of 120 hours*
  • English - maximum of 120 hours*

* hours will be confirmed on an individual basis during induction week. Number of hours is dependent on your prior qualifications.
