Covid-19 Learner Procedure

The following will show you how to safely attend your Academy to carry out your learning and assessments.

You must ensure that:

  • You don’t arrive before your allocated time
  • You follow all signage that is in place and do not access any other area than what was on your letter
  • You follow the directions of your tutor while onsite.
  • PPE will be mandatory in most working areas of the Academy and will be provided on the day. This will be allocated to you when you arrive
  • Once your training day is over you must leave the Academy and return home. You may be asked to leave the Academy by a different entrance to the one you used to enter the building; this will be explained to you on the day.

Arrival

You will have been given a time that you should arrive at the Academy. Do not try and get into the Academy prior to your allocated time as you will be refused entry. This is to ensure the learners who arrive before you have enough time to get ready and we continue to meet social distancing guidelines.

If you need to wait outside the Academy, please ensure you stay 1m away from other learners who may be there. 

When you do enter the Academy there will be a sanitisation station as you enter, you MUST sanitise your hands using the gel that is in the area, please do not proceed past this point until you have done this, your tutor will be on hand to remind you. Every time you enter or leave the Academy you must sanitise your hands with the gel provided.

You will have an allocated work area within your Academy. 

Please ensure that you put your personal belongings underneath your work station. 
Most of the internal salon areas are now mandatory PPE areas meaning that you must wear the required PPE before entering them. 

When you  enter the salon area there will be a table that will hold your PPE. Please ensure you put this on before proceeding any farther. Entry to your individual work area will only be allowed once you are wearing your full allocation of PPE which could include a face mask, disposable apron and disposable gloves. 

Once you are wearing your PPE you can proceed to your allocated work area and start your learning. Signs will be in place to direct you to where you need to be if required. 

Personal tools and equipment

You must bring in your full kit to your training day. 

You must ensure that you have sterilised your kit prior to bringing to the academy. 

When you arrive at the academy you must spray your tools with the sanitiser spray and wipe other equipment with sanitiser wipes, prior to use.

Bags must be stored under your work station.

Work Area

Your work station will be numbered. Please proceed to this area. 

Within your workspace you will find:

  • A trolly for your equipment 
  • Any paperwork you need to complete as part of your assessment or learning.
  • If you require any more equipment or stock, please inform your tutor who will manage this for you.

Your tutor will be on hand to answer any questions. Face masks will be worn by all tutors during the course of your training day, however they will still maintain a safe distance.

You may find that there will be limits on the number of people in any one area however these will be explained to you by your tutor when required.

Paperwork

If you need to complete paperwork as part of your assessment or learning this will be done in two ways:

  • Anything you need to fill in and hand back to your tutor will be in your work area– this should be completed before you leave. 
  • If you need to complete any work alongside your tutor this will be done once you have completed your practical assessment in a separate classroom area. Your tutor will help you with this, however you may be asked to wear PPE if you are closer than 1m. If you do not wear this, the paperwork can’t be completed, and you will not be able to complete your assessment. Your tutor will be on hand at all times to help with this where required.

Welfare Facilities

The toilets within the Academy are allocated for staff and learners, please be aware of other persons who may be using the toilets. 

You are not permitted to use the kitchen microwave, we ask that you bring your own food and drink with you. Cold water will be available and plastic cups will be supplied. 

You will be allocated staggered break times to minimise contact during your training day and an area has been set aside for you to take any breaks in. 

After your training day

Your finish time will be staggered to maintain social distancing. 

Any PPE MUST be removed before you leave the salon area and disposed of in the allocated bin as instructed by your tutor. Please leave the academy via the allocated exit door.
