Happy New Year! New year, new online beauty therapy course!
As of the 4th of January 2021, the Prime Minister announced we are now in a third national lockdown. The government has stated that this lockdown will be reviewed, by the 13th of February 2021.
Here at Ray Cochrane Beauty School, we are happy to share some good news with you during these uncertain times. Due to the current situation and ongoing uncertainty of when the education sector can reopen.
We will be introducing virtual classrooms to provide online beauty theory training alongside some of our beauty therapy courses:
The Types of Online Learning
Online courses are growing more popular every year and 2020 definitely saw an increase with the COVID-19 effect. There are three online course types:
- Synchronous Learning – Classes and materials are all given out in real time.
- Asynchronous Learning – Students will learn at their own pace.
- Blended Learning – A combination of the two mentioned above.
When you think of most online courses, pre-recorded content and lessons with no interactions come to mind. That’s definitely not the best way to study beauty therapy!
Which is why we are using Synchronous learning for the launch of our online course! Our online course will offer real time learning through a virtual classroom experience.
What is Different About Our Online Course?
Our online beauty therapy courses is different from those offered by any other beauty school around!
Firstly, our virtual classroom will be live sessions and not prerecorded lessons. The live classrooms will enable students to have direct access with their tutors. The benefits of having the lessons as a live session will allow students to ask tutors questions immediately if stuck. Students will also build relationships with other course mates, as you will be able to see and interact with them safely. We will be asking that all students have their cameras on, to encourage participation!
We have worked hard to design an online course that best imitates the benefits of in-person lessons.
This new teaching plan is only possible due to hard work and planning by our teaching team. The online beauty courses combine the virtual classroom with onsite practical training. We are aware that beauty therapy is not like learning other, more theoretical subjects. With beauty training, there are many elements of practical and hands-on studies. These lessons have to be taught and examined in person.
Despite moving the theoretical aspects of the courses online, course quality remains non-compromised! Practical course elements will still be the same amount of hours as offered in our fully in-person beauty courses. Students can rest assured knowing that they are receiving the high-quality beauty training that the Ray Cochrane Beauty school is renowned for.
Who is Suitable For The Online Beauty Course?
Students who are already enrolled, on the courses, mentioned previously should receive an email from our enrolment staff. This email will outline your relevant online course materials so that you can go ahead with your intended start date.
For those who are new to the Ray Cochrane Beauty School, this course is perfect for those who are looking to start a career in the beauty industry. Our course teaches you all the necessary beauty knowledge needed and once fully-qualified, there are many career paths available.
You can either start your own beauty business or seek employment within beauty salons, health spas, cruise Liners and advanced skin clinics.
How Will You Be Examined?
To become qualified in your chosen online beauty course, you will need to pass, all of the tutor-marked assignments. Students can rest assured that there is no need to purchase any books as we provide all of the course materials required to pass. Theoretical examinations will be carried out online via zoom, to follow the current government guidelines. Practical exams will then be completed on-site once you have carried out your practical training.
We have worked hard to ensure that the quality of learning and examination remains fair for students choosing to study online.
