Essential Skills – English and Maths

If you achieve a grade 3 in GCSE Maths or English you will have to work towards re-sitting these subjects as part of your main study programme. At B&FC, this won’t delay your career journey because you’re working towards these subjects at the same time as your chosen subject.

Teaching and Learning Methods

At B&FC we recognise all students learn differently.

It may be for some a return to the classroom following a break from formal learning.

Our tutors work with you to ensure their teaching methods support the way you like to learn.

Demonstrations are a key teaching method on this course. Tutors use demonstrations whenever possible to help you learn practical skills.

Following demonstrations you will then have hands on practical time where you will be learning the practical skills.

You will work collaboratively with other students on presentations and in practical salon sessions.

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 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.
