Trainings back, new & improved!
Derry from Training Solutions Group talks online education and blended learning.
As we travel along the road map out of lock down it is the perfect opportunity to think about how you can remotivate yourself or your team and update your skills to future proof your business. As an educator, salon owner and working stylist, I can hand on heart confirm that education is a key factor of success and essential to futureproof myself, my business and my teams in the new landscape of the hair and beauty sector. As the saying goes ‘do what you always did, get what you always got’. Now is the time for action. Update your skills, learn something new or plan a complete career change.
Over the last 18 months, the way in which we access and deliver education has significantly changed (for the better). Education is more accessible and above all, having wider access to education will ultimately raise the standard of sector. Training Solutions has built a strong reputation over the last 21 years as being an industry leader of face-to-face, short course education. Under the recent circumstances, we have quickly evolved to launch a range of Online and Blended learning courses. In addition to our face-to-face options, you can train and access education in a range of different ways.
First of all lets break the jargon!
Face to Face courses
This refers to our traditional fully delivered face to face education
This is fully online, you will receive access to our bespoke and purpose made learning portal. For the theory elements, this contains all the information you’ll need including video tutorials to refer back to after the training. In addition to this, you will attend a LIVE online group training course with one of our expert education team.
You get the best of both worlds, access to all of the online portal materials, along with the video tutorials after the course. You also have the opportunity to attend the live practical elements face-to-face at a one of Capital Hair Beauty training venues.
We also have our Insight Sessions, these are bite sized look and learn sessions delivered online. Watch this space for insight sessions on subjects such as; introductions to NXT, trend focused cutting, lash techniques and nail art, to name a few.
What does a Blended learning experience look like with Training Solutions & Capital Hair and Beauty
· Upon booking your course you will receive a welcome email outlining what to expect and your next steps (usually within 2 days of booking)
· You will receive access to our online learning portal, where you will complete your pre-course learning, this is usually broken down in to the following modules:
o Introduction/ Overview
o Essential Knowledge and review for Hair or Beauty
o Course specific learning
o Check learning segments.
· Within the welcome email there will be a list of practical dates for you to choose from. You’ll need to select one and email us back with the date and location you prefer. You have 12 weeks to complete your live training.
·Don’t forget to check you have all the ‘Essential Kit’ items from the kit list, your PPE and any skin/ allergy tests completed.
·You will receive reminder emails counting you down to your face-to-face session. The session will be run under COVID secure procedures.
·After successfully completing the course, you will receive your unique certification code and be able to obtain your digital certificate straight away from within the learning portal.
·You will have 1 year’s access from registration to the all of the online learning materials for this course, including any updates we make. Therefore you will be able to refer back to this to refresh your memory at any time.
As always, we have a team of fully qualified and experienced hair and beauty professionals based in our offices. In addition to this, our amazing education team is also on hand to give you ongoing technical support by telephone or email.
The blended learning options are a brilliant way to build confidence, learn a new skill or develop more advanced techniques. You will never have the feeling of arriving at a course and not understanding the background of the subject you are about to study, as the pre course learning really does set the scene for you. This means more time to focus on the ‘doing’ of the service or treatment with one of our expert educators. All educators will happily answer any questions you have on the pre learning as well as recapping on elements in relation to the practical skills.
