Welcome to April’s newsletter.
In March we were at Digifest at the Birmingham ICC.
This was a two day event, starting on 14th March, celebrating ‘the power of digital, its potential to transform and its capacity to revolutionise learning and teaching.’
We spoke on the second day of the event and our slot included guest speaker Jackie Sharp from Bradford College. Jackie talked about how the staff and students in the Hairdressing department use the resources in teaching and learning.
Bradford College were involved in the creation of the resources on the Hairdressing Training website so Jackie had lots of technical inside knowledge to share and this generated several discussions on how best to use the resources after the talk. If you want to get involved in this sort of discussion then get in touch with us at Hairdressing@Jisc.ac.uk .
Don’t forget you can also engage with us anytime by using our social media channels (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram) or email us through the website.
You can see the slides from the Hairdressing Training talk at Digifest here.
Here is a picture of Jackie Sharp at the Hairdressing Training talk with our Service Manager Pete Collins.

On Tuesday 11th April, we are holding a Practitioners Group Meeting at our Manchester office. This is an opportunity for attendees to discuss all aspects of the Hairdressing Training website including what works for them and what doesn’t and what they would like to see in the future. Also on the agenda is service enhancement and ideas for effective marketing of Hairdressing Training. We’ll let you know how it goes!
