COVID-19 INFORMATION 

The UK Government have sadly confirmed that beauty, nails, holistic services and training schools in England cannot re-open on 4th July as we had previously been led to expect. These services also must remain closed in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales where reopening dates will be set by the devolved authorities.

 

CS Beauty Academy are extremely disappointed with this latest announcement, the spokesperson from the Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) said: “Unfortunately, I cannot advise on the date for re-opening as nothing has as yet been confirmed.”

 

So according to the guidelines, training schools, must remain closed.  In light of the situation, CS Beauty Academy is open for telephone calls, emails and text messages as always!

 

Unfortunately training dates/exam dates cannot be given at present due to the unknown of when CS Beauty Academy can open the doors for face to face contact. Please stay in contact for any new developments over the coming weeks.   

 

So until next time,

 

Stay Alert

To all Students -

 

Hope you are well.

 

I am writing to update you with news relating to the Covid-19 situation at CS Beauty Academy and course dates and assessment dates.

 

CS Beauty Academy is due to re-open for face to face teaching etc.  6 July 2020 at 10am. Please understand CS Beauty Academy is currently open at present for any telephone, text messaging and emails. Happy to help with any questions, theory work etc.

 

CS Beauty Academy is still waiting to hear from VTCT (awarding body) and Insurances companies relating to any new teaching methods that need to be put in place, PPE and how many students I will be allowed to teach at any one time within the Academy. Currently CS Beauty Academy can teach 4 students at any one time, however this may change due to Covid-19 safety.

 

As you are aware all treatments within Beauty are close contact therefore 2 metres distance is not achievable. Salons and training schools will need to follow some fairly rigid procedures when we re-open. These will be specified when the Government guidelines are published, hopefully later this week. The key to safe opening will be individual risk assessments, teaching Academies and Salons should be able to continue offering most treatments under the guidelines, although some of the treatments concentrated around the nose, mouth and eyes may not be possible without modification and may only be possible once all restrictions are lifted.  The risk will centre on the student treating or working on the model, not the teacher looking on and giving instruction. 

 

Unfortunaly I am unable to book solid dates within the diary for teaching due to I am currently unsure how many students I will be allowed at any one time within the Academy, I am fully aware the 2 metre rule is not going to be achievable within beauty treatments, practicing etc. however if distance can be achieved and used during training at certain points then CS Beauty Academy would like to undertake this precaution for safety. CS Beauty is asking all students at the moment, if you could possibly give an indication of dates you would prefer to attend the Academy for your course training. CS Beauty Academy understands you may have your own commitments with work at the same time the Academy is due to open, therefore the Academy fully understands your request may not be immediate and may even be next year’s dates. CS Beauty Academy will try to do its very best to accommodate your preference, however please be aware this may not be always achievable for everyone.  I apologise in advance if your dates offered do not match your preference. If the dates offered do not meet your requirements, then hopefully we will eventually find suitable dates that suit your diary and CS Beauty Academies diary.

 

Please be aware you have 2 years to complete your course from the moment you signed up with CS Beauty Academy and paid your deposit payment.

 

Practical assessment dates and theory exams dates are yet to be discussed with the internal verifier, invigilator and VTCT. Assessment dates are normally conducted at the end of each month, the last Thursday and Friday of each month. CS Beauty is asking all students at the moment if you could possibly give an indication of which month you would prefer to attend the Academy for your assessments/theory exams, this question only relates to students that have already completed their training.

 

CS Beauty Academy looks forward to hearing from you all soon.

 

Please feel free to continue to contact CS Beauty Academy with your questions relating to the pandemic and any home study questions you may have. CS Beauty Academy remains open for all telephone conversations, text messages and emails.

 

 

 

So until next time,

 

Stay Alert

Following Boris Johnson’s announcement last night (Sunday 10 May 2020)

 

 

A new COVID-19 alert level model ranks the status of the pandemic into 5 stages, with 5 being the highest. Currently we are alert level 4. The Government will announce plans on how we can start to move down to level 3 later today. Hair and beauty salon businesses, holistic centres, nail bars training schools plus home based and mobile businesses may have to wait until the alert level drops to 2 before they can re-open. The new model only applies to England. The lockdown has already been extended until May 28th in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland where salon businesses must also remain closed.

 

 

VTCT will be getting in touch with individual Schools/Academies shortly with news on adaptation methods.

 

Our industry involves touching clients which makes it impossible to adhere to the 2m social distancing rule. Hence the industry remains in lockdown at present.

 

4 July is the current date for hairdressers and salons to be able to re-open, however this date could change.

 

Insurance companies and VTCT will provide its analysis of how this will affect our industry shortly, and a more detailed update will be provided once CS Beauty Academy has this information.

 

Please feel free to continue to contact CS Beauty Academy with your questions relating to the pandemic and any home study questions you may have. CS Beauty Academy remains open for all telephone conversations, text messages and emails.

 

 

 

So until next time,

 

Stay Alert

Control The Virus
