Vocational study programmes working successfully in schools
Michael John Academy in partnership with Broadgreen International School are busy preparing delivery of the Level 2 Principal Learning in Hair & Beauty Studies.
This diploma sized programme is recognised as a substantial qualification route and is one of very few that still contribute to school league tables as GCSE grade A-C equivalents.
Broadgreen pupils who have selected this as an option will study aspects of hair and beauty from September 2014, fulfilling assignments and gaining a real insight into the industry.
Michael John Academy work with schools to support vocational options in hairdressing, barbering, beauty therapy and nail services. In 2007 at the request of Broadgreen International School they established a commercially focused salon environment, which has been highly successful.
Paul Duffy, deputy headteacher, said: “Broadgreen has worked very closely with Michael John for the past seven years with the provision of hair and beauty course’s in the school’s onsite professional standard salon.
“Michael John provide all the staff and logistical support in a very successful working relationship that has yielded 100% success for all learners.”
