Teach Too: UKTD: working with SMEs to develop online learning in the context of hairdressing apprenticeships

Summary Teach Too is about encouraging people from industry to spend time teaching their work through curriculum development, promoting the practice of teachers and trainers updating their industry experience and helping to build genuine collaborative arrangements between employer and providers. Within the context of hairdressing apprenticeships, this project investigated how the trend in social media and online apps could make on-line learning possible for small business employers and their learners. The increased communication with employers through this project has led to a more responsive approach to employer and learner needs. An example of progress achieved is the embedding of functional skills in hairdressing subject content.
