Diane Mitchell, hair portfolio manager at City and Guilds, said she was delighted about the partnership. “These videos use innovative new technology to give hair and beauty students access to the best training available and are an exciting development. This project is a fantastic example of how industry and educational provides can work together to enhance opportunities for trainers and learners alike,” she said.

The material is aimed at students undertaking NVQs, VRQs and SVQs from Levels 1-3, and includes elements of maths and English.
