Whether ornate or simple, hairdressing has been employed by almost every society.

Assessment Structure  

A model of periodical in-course assessment coupled with a final assessment project is proposed for this course. Trainees will be assessed at different intervals over the training period as this helps reduce anxiety with respect to the finality of testing. This assessment method, therefore, enhances learning since trainees will be able to remediate weaknesses before each module ends.
