Hair and Barbering
Hairdressing , T Level
This vocational course will assist you in further developing your skills to professional standard in women’s hairdressing, and getting you career ready by providing you with placements in work contexts. This will help you gain confidence in dealing with all hair types and developing your customer service.
As a Weston College student you will become part of our exciting new Career Excellence Hub in Hair and Beauty. This means you will take part in a study programme with lots of career boosting benefits, all with the aim of giving you the opportunity to become career ready!
What does the course involve?
Within the Hair and Beauty route, you will develop knowledge and understanding of the client journey and self-development along with business context and practices, sales and marketing, and safe working practices and regulations.
The core knowledge and understanding delivered within this qualification will support you to transition into employment with the skills, confidence and attributes required to be successful in the hairdressing sector.
After gaining an appreciation of these wider core skills, you then gain a deeper understanding of an occupational specialism of your choice, allowing you to pursue your specific interests. The Hair and Beauty T Level will offer two specialisms: Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy.
How will the course be assessed?
You will be assessed through assignment work, case studies, presentations, examinations and final practical examinations.
Are there any additional costs?
You will be required to purchase a kit and a uniform; these will be available from the college shop. ###What future study opportunities and careers are there?
After completing a two-year T Level, you will have the necessary knowledge, skills, and behaviours to successfully progress into work or higher-level study. When you pass your T Level, you receive a nationally recognised certificate showing the overall grade you achieved: pass, merit, distinction, or distinction. The certificate will also give details of what you learned on the course to help you move into skilled employment or a higher apprenticeship. A distinction secures you the same number of UCAS points as three A Levels at A*, and will be recognised by universities, other education providers and employers, meaning your progression options are kept entirely open.
