We operate this course through a blended learning process. This will include an initial assessment on a Friday and then working over the weekend.
However, before, during and after your course you have access to our online learning platform to cover the theory knowledge.
The online learning and portfolio work is mandatory, as this time is logged and is essential in you achieving your Diploma.
Importantly, if we don't think you're suitable for the Fast Track Level 3 Diploma, we will suggest the longer term course as an option. We aim for the best standards and will always try to provide you with the same standards we expect.
What you'll need to buy
We require students to buy their own scissors so that they can get used to their own equipment. You do not need to buy these before you join us, we carry a small range or we can recommend where to purchase them. You use your scissors every day so invest in them!
All other equipment we will provide during your course.
