- School: St Wilfrid's CE Academy
- Studied: Hairdressing Level 3
"We were provided with all the practical equipment we needed through up to date packs that allowed us to practice our practical skills at home."
Amy spoke positively about her experience of studying her practical Hairdressing Level 3 course from home during national Coronavirus lockdown periods.
Amy said: “Lockdown was challenging but there was definitely ups in terms of my learning from home experience.
“My tutors provided me with plenty of support and we always did three online classes per week. Alongside this, we were provided with all the practical equipment we needed through up to date packs that allowed us to practice our practical skills at home.
“There were some challenges to online practical sessions as it isn’t the same as face to face learning, but it showed that I could overcome challenges and hurdles and learn a variety of skills in a different environment.”
She added: “I also used my time outside of classes to do some relevant online training such as Olaplex training.
“Our tutors kept spirits up by introducing some fun to the learning from home experience. One standout experience was the online Christmas quiz that we did – it was a lot of fun!”
