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. 

You will work collaboratively with your peers in group tasks, presentations and practical salon sessions.

You will be required to model for your peers as well so you can experience the therapies first hand.

You will also be expected to apply these skills to real 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 including Moodle, 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 3-4 days a week for 35 weeks and your tutor will guide you on independent study.
