Hair and beauty is an ever growing Industry. Our new exciting qualification which we are beginning to deliver in 2018 gives pupils an insight into the world of hair and beauty covering spa therapy, barbering, hairdressing, beauty therapy and nails and make-up. There are links within the units of this qualification to other subjects such as: science, business, fashion and drama. Pupils will learn how to research industry related topics, discover what ingredients are in the products we use and why, delve into the career opportunities within the large and developing industry and be creative when working to a design brief which can cover hairdressing, make-up, nails and fashion. This qualification appears on performance tables so will be both challenging and rewarding.
