Course overview

This introductory level 1 Award has been designed for 16–18 learners who wish to achieve a Level 1 qualification in preparation for future study. The qualification is designed to maximise opportunities for learners to progress by focusing on the development of transferable and sector-related skills. The qualification has been designed explicitly to meet the needs of this group of learners in terms of content, assessment and progression.

The Pearson BTEC Level 1 Introductory Award in Hair and Beauty is designed around practical skills and tasks that place an emphasis on learners demonstrating what they can do rather than what they know in theory. The qualification gives learners the opportunity to acquire and develop generic, transferable, and sector-specific skills in order to complete tasks and demonstrate a level of achievement that enables them to progress to further learning. The Award offers an introduction to the hair and beauty sector and could be studied alongside other subjects within a study programme.

This course is run in the David Hockney Building at the main city centre campus.

What you'll study

Sector specific skills including

  • Employability skills for the Hair industry
  • Hair styling
  • Hair care

Our experienced staff will deliver a variety of practical workshops, classroom sessions and presentations alongside independent student research. All learners taking this qualification will study core units that focus on key transferable skills such as research and planning, time management and working with others. Learners will also take a number of sector units. The content of the sector units offers a broad introduction to the skills and knowledge within that sector, allowing the delivery to be practical and active in order to engage the learners. For the hair and beauty sector, the units cover topics and activities such as finding out about the careers and progression within the sector, responding to a brief to come up with ideas, and carrying out hair and beauty treatments. We will be visiting such places as Pro hair live and guest speakers are also used to help enrich your learning experience.

The course is based on a Programme of Study, which consists of: the vocational qualification itself; a City & Guilds Employability Award, maths and English, a tutorial programme and work experience. Learners will study three core Employability units and three sector specific units over the duration of the course.
