Credits 266 


In the designing and planning of the Beautiko curriculum five components are interconnected and emphasized.

These components are: outcomes, context, learning content, teaching and learning strategy and assessment.
The curriculum includes the intended outcomes (exit level outcomes, specific outcomes and critical cross-field outcomes) for the purpose of learners to demonstrate and achieve these outcomes in theory, practical and case based components.

The learning areas of the learning programme,(which include units, lessons and the accompanying planning)

cover three aspects : knowledge, skills and attitudes (which include values).

The teaching and learning programme incorporates various planned activities and procedures which are incorporated to aid the trainer to help learners master the learning content.

The trainer also considers factors such as the most suitable teaching and learning methods to be used within different contexts and where time and place are also contributing factors.

These methods are combined in a meaningful way so that learners can take full advantage of opportunities offered to them.



Beautikos trainers use different strategies to help learners reach the desired outcomes.

Apart from the more traditional methods of delivery such as lecturing and demonstration, educators incorporate other methods such as group and pair work and cooperative learning to promote positive interaction.

Other methods include discovery teaching to help learners develop critical and evaluative thinking skills.

Provision is also made in the delivery to ensure that appropriate critical cross-field outcomes are met.
