Teaching and Learning Methods

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 practice 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 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 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 on-line apps to support, enhance and motivate learning.

Your tutors will be able to 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.

Your work schedule will be 3-4 days a week for 35 weeks.  

Independent study will be guided by the tutor.
