Hair & Beauty

Pearson BTEC Level 1 Introductory Certificate in Hair and Beauty is a skills-based qualification designed to help learners develop the personal and social skills needed to help them to progress to independent living, future employment or further vocational study. All units are 100% internally assessed. The focus is on the development of both transferable and sector skills. The development of these skills is key in helping progression to further study – whether that be to other BTECs, to apprenticeships or to training.
