Good News! We are back!

We are planning a phased reopening of our training centre from Monday 13 July 2020

It's the moment we have all been waiting for, it has been a long three months for everyone!

We are planning a phased reopening of our training centre, hairdressing salon and offices, from Monday 13 July 2020.  We have taken the following steps to ensure our premises provide a safe environment for staff, learners and visitors.

  • A comprehensive and detailed risk assessment has been undertaken with all staff, detailing the actions and mitigation we have put in place
  • The premises have been fully deep-cleaned before reopening and we have followed all available government guidance
  • We are controlling the number of staff, learners and visitors in the centre and salon at any one time. All staff continue to work from home at some point each week and we continue to deliver training and support remotely
  • We are operating contactless temperature checks, anyone presenting with a temperature above 37.8oC will be asked to go home 
  • We are observing social distancing of 2 metres throughout the centre and salon
  • We have installed clear screens between each work-station in the salon
  • Hand sanitiser is available throughout the centre and salon
  • Regular hand washing is encouraged, with disposable towels provided in each toilet
  • We have PPE available for staff, learners and clients, including disposable masks, gloves, towels and gowns and face visors within the salon
  • There are appropriate information and safety notices displayed throughout the centre, and salon
  • Each work-station and tools/equipment are sanitised in between each client within the salon
  • A regular thorough cleaning routine of the centre takes place, with each training room cleaned after every use
  • All refreshments will be served in disposable cups
  • Learners and visitors to the centre, and clients attending the hairdressing salon, will be advised to arrive for their appointment on time as the waiting area will no longer be in use

These arrangements aim to protect staff, learners and visitors, providing peace of mind that we are conducting our services in the safest way possible
