ALTERNATIVE CURRICULUM/
SCHOOL STUDY PROGRAMME

Overview

Montebello Training offers programmes designed to develop skills and knowledge of the Hair and Beauty Industry in additional to life skills and employability qualifications.

 

Following an initial assessment, all students will be given an individual education plan to be agreed and completed in consultation with the student, parent or guardian and the course tutors.

 

In addition to the qualifications available, we offer Life Skills Training. This offers the students time to learn more about themselves and the types of careers that may be suitable to them. Examples of topics covered include:

  • Getting to know yourself, personal impact, building self-confidence, money and work, understanding and managing debt, online reputation, networking skills etc.

 

We also offer a holistic beauty course. Although this does not offer a formal qualification, the course teaches the basics of massage plus candle making, soap making etc.

 

At Montebello Training, we realise the benefit of work-based learning. We have strong relationships with a network of salons throughout Merseyside and will organise supervised work-placed learning as appropriate.
