Happy holidays Ray Cochrane

As our doors close for the holidays at Ray Cochrane, we would like to say thank you to you all!

2020 has been difficult: government lockdowns and new guidelines that have impacted how we teach. Despite all of this, we’ve managed to have a productive year! 

Our students were able to complete all of their theory and practical exams for the year. The VTCT Level 2 Infection Prevention Course was added to ensure that all beauty professionals would be able to navigate in the new climate. Students that enrolled on the course learnt how to limit the spread of COVID in their work environment.

At Ray Cochrane, our most popular course this year was Level 4 Laser. Students completing this course will master laser hair removal and skin rejuvenation. The Advanced Aesthetician career path is growing more popular as the non-surgical industry is estimated to be worth £2.75 billion! To find out more about how you can become an Advanced Aesthetician in 2021, read here.

Another popular course for 2020 was our Level 4 Microblading, which sold out numerous times throughout the year. Popular demand has even made us offer more start dates in 2021!
