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 your skills before having a go yourself. You will also be expected to model for your peers (so you can experience the therapies first-hand).
Along with practical salon sessions, the programme consists of group work, presentations and dedicated self-study periods. These need to be supported by your own study outside of College, using online development platforms such as Moodle, our virtual learning environment.
E-learning is a key element of all our courses 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.
Over the year, timetabled sessions total 385 hours. Depending on your qualifications, you will also need to devote additional time to maths and English (up to 120 hours for each discipline). We will calculate and confirm these amounts when you start your course.
All students are expected to devote at least 220 hours to independent study and spend at least 20 hours on a relevant work placement.
