Just as we were experiencing our most exciting time of fully booked courses, COVID-19 unfortunately hit, meaning we had to follow government advice for the safety of our staff and students, and close the academy until further notice.
On the positive side we have worked hard to make learning resources accessible online so that present and future students can continue their training and be as uninterrupted as possible.
On the less positive side, due to being a new business, so far we have regrettably been unable to get any loans, grants or government support.
In these uncertain times we are reaching out to ask for your help in keeping our training academy going in this crisis. We need your help to raise £15k to continue to cover our costs, overheads, awarding body fees, secure the jobs of our trainers who can currently continue to teach theory via online webinars and survive COVID-19 so we can reopen the academy doors once we get the thumbs up from the government to do so. We have worked out this would keep us afloat until end of summer when we hope this will have passed and can finally get back into the classroom and face to face with our students again!
We offer beauty and aesthetic courses for beginners and believe there will be a high demand for treatments once lockdown is fully lifted. We are training the next generation of Beauticians and Aestheticians to be able to perform competent, confident, professional, high standard treatments. We have adjusted our training so that we can make as much as possible online for students, such as online webinars, however the practical parts of the course are on hold until we are given the all clear to re-open and be in contact with each other again.
We appreciate these are difficult times and are truly grateful for any contribution you may be able to give.
For the time-being stay indoors, protect our NHS and save lives.
