Technical Education

As part of the ADTV Faculty, Campion offers a unique opportunity for students to study the subject of Hair & Beauty.

The VTCT Level 2 Certificate in Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy (VRQ) is a Technical Award specifically for 14-16 year olds and is equivalent to a GCSE.

This qualification aims to support young people to:
- Develop a broad and comprehensive understanding of the hair and beauty sector
- Develop knowledge which spans the entire vocational sector and related industries
- Develop academic study and transferable skills that will support progression within the hair and beauty sector and more broadly.

KS4: What will students learn?

Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy has been and remains an extremely popular vocational area that many young people are enthused by and aspire too. The aim of this qualification is to use the hair and beauty sector as a vehicle to develop learners more broadly, so they are prepared and equipped with the knowledge, understanding and skills to pursue a career in any context.

Service and Maintenance Engineering is assessed by using externally set and marked on line tests, internally marked practical tasks and written assessments. There is also a written project which encompasses the synoptic assessment element to this qualification.
