After arranging the next round of interviews with FD staff, Dave and I met with the Head of Department for Hair & Beauty and the course tutor for the Complementary Therapies FD to go through the interview questions we had prepared.
We gained some interesting feedback regarding the WBL model and how it will work on the course and also that all the learners are self-employed and do not work for an employer.
One outcome of the meeting is we have been invited to the Complementary Therapies steering group meeting to discuss the project with the other partner colleges involved with the FD. We have also arranged to meet with the learners on the course at Shrewsbury. We will produce an online questionnaire to gain feedback from the learners perspective. This will take place on 21st March.
