    YOUR PERSONAL TUTOR: All full-time and some part-time learners have a Personal Tutor. Your tutor will welcome you to the College, help you to settle in and be there to give you help and information. Your tutor is usually your first point of contact with the College and your main source of help. You will meet your tutor every week, as part of a group session or for a one-to-one discussion and review of your progress. It is important that you attend your tutorials as they will support you and make sure you get the most out of College. You will meet your tutor at Induction. The Induction programme introduces you to staff, other learners, your course and the College.

    Work Experience You will be required to undertake work experience in a local hairdressing salon for a block period compulsory aspect of the course.


    Learner progress at their own rate, taking assessments as and when they are ready, however, there is a one year completion deadline. (Try not to make a competition of completed assessments with your peers, this will only lead to unnecessary worry). Your practical will be on going and you will follow your negotiated personal assessment plan. You will be observed carrying out practical skills (Direct observation). These must be completed within City & Guilds time constraints. You will need to complete a number of oral question papers, mandatory test papers and assignments. Oral question papers and mandatory test papers are completed on-line.

    Verification Is carried out to ensure that each learner is marked to the same standard. Internal Verifiers: a selected number of subject specific staff will periodically join your class to check that all practical assessments are equally met across the board. A selection of your project work will also be cross marked to help maintain continuity. External Verifiers: each college is issued an external verifier, their responsibility is to cross check a selection of learner assessments, both practical and projects. This is done to ensure that all assessment centres are assessing to the same standards and is carried out twice a year.

    Attendance Monitoring We want you to be successful on your course and to achieve your qualifications. It is therefore important that you attend all classes as good attendance is the key to being successful. The Attendance Monitor will work with you and your Tutors to promote good attendance. What will they do?

    offer support if you are having problems which affect your attendance

    refer you to Learner Services who can help with a range of personal problems and barriers to learning and attendance

    refer you to your Tutor who will discuss your attendance and take action where appropriate

    What can you do?

    Avoid unnecessary absences, for example, by making appointments outside College hours

    Inform the Attendance Monitor if you are going to be absent for any reason

    Telephone (01205) 365701, option 2, or e-mail, or text BCABSENT to 88020. Texts are charged at standard network rate. This information is also on the back of your ID badge

    Please remember to give your name, ID number and reason for absence

    The Attendance Monitor is: Gail Bevan

    Portfolios A lever arch file will be needed for the collation of all evidence generated. All evidence must be referenced and filed in the appropriate section of the portfolio. Guidance sessions to assist with this will be given during tutorials.

    PLAGIARISM The use of other peoples work and the submission of it as though it was your own is known as plagiarism (plagiarism means theft of other peoples ideas). Any work forming part of an assignment, project, test or other assessment must be your own and must not contain any plagiarised material. Evidence of plagiarism will result in failure of the assessment. Any new assessment arrangement will be given with a strict completion date. You will also be subject to the Colleges disciplinary proceedings. If you wish to quote material from a textbook or other source then this should be referenced in your assignment. Your subject lecturer or Personal Tutor will show you how to do this.
