These are unprecedented times. We wanted to reach out and reassure you around the developing situation and give an update.
The Academy remains open. We are still here, just working in isolation. You can still phone and email us with any questions you may have. You can still book and secure your place on upcoming courses.
We continue to stay in touch with current and future students throughout this time updating on any changes.
For current students we are continuing to support your learning where we can and for those whose courses have had to be paused we have transferred your course to future dates.
For those booked onto upcoming courses we continue to honour all bookings and transfer any courses which have to be postponed onto future dates.
For those wishing to book we will honour your booking if the pandemic restrictions are still in place at the time of your course and we will rearrange to future dates for you. Please do get in touch if you wish to talk over any aspects of the course, we would love to meet you even if it can’t be in person.
This time brings many challenges, and as ever also gifts us with opportunities too. We have used the past month as a chance for growth. We will be introducing blended learning options for our courses. It has been in development for some time now with the first phase introduced in January and we are thankful that we have been able to bring this phase forward to support our students in this time.
Blended learning takes elements of your courses online allowing you to work through theory in your own time at home. Our practical elements will remain in the classroom ensuring our commitment to the highest standards in learning for you remains.
Our first blended learning course is our ITEC Level 3 Diploma in Sports Massage Therapy. You can now begin with home learning for the theory and introductions to techniques. When we are able to open the Academy we will follow up your learning with classroom days to bolster your understanding and complete the practical elements of the course. Our commitment is to the highest possible standards in learning and the classroom remains the place to cement these skills.
If you are hoping to study our ITEC Level 3 Diploma in Reflexology, Aromatherapy or Massage, you can begin the Anatomy & Physiology module through E-learning. This package is available to launch your learning journey. Once the Academy is open you can then continue onto your next phase of learning on your chosen Diploma.
Our approach to being open and honest throughout this time continues. With that in mind we can not say for sure when restrictions will be lifted and giving you a date would be irresponsible. So let us just say this - the moment it is safe to reopen the Academy doors we will gratefully do so. We miss having our classrooms full of excitement, laughter and learning.
May we take this opportunity to thank our community for your patience, understanding and care. We look forward to seeing you back at the Academy soon. Take care.
