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 course combines group work, presentations and practical salon sessions. There is the opportunity to apply your skills to clients in our working salons and to model for your peers so you can experience different services first hand.

Online development is a key element of this programme and will involve you using our virtual learning environment, Moodle, for independent study outside of College. 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.

You will spend 12 hours a week in class and our salon workshops, with additional time set aside for periods of self-study. We also expect you to devote at least 6 hours a week to independent study outside of College.
