Dear Students of LCBT,

I hope this finds you and your families well.

Following the announcement from the Prime Minister yesterday evening of a new national lockdown, I can confirm that all learning will continue remotely in the coming weeks, until such time as schools and College’s in London are able to open.

During lockdown, please continue to join lessons remotely via Microsoft Teams.  You will be asked to register with your tutor by 10 am by joining the link provided and take part in the learning plan and actions for the day.  We will use this time as effectively as possible to focus on the theory aspects of your course, as well as some practical elements that are possible to do remotely.  We will then resume with practical training as soon as we are able to be back in College once again.

We do not know how long the lockdown will last, but please be assured that we will support all learners to complete their courses successfully and can extend courses if necessary should learners need more time with the practical element of the course.   We were successful last year at supporting all learners to achieve despite the lockdown, and this year we will continue to do the same.  What is important however is that you continue to attend classes online and participate with the work and activities that are set.

If you are finding any elements of the remote learning challenging or require any additional support please do speak with your lecturer.

If you are facing any difficulties either at home or within college and require further support, please either speak with your lecturer, or email safe@lcbt.co.uk

If for any reason you are unable to attend your online classes because you are unwell please email lcbt.attendance@lcbt.co.uk

I know that this is a challenging time for all, but hopefully were are on the last stretch of this time in lockdown.  Whilst the Beauty, Hair, Make up and Fitness industries are facing lockdown, they will open again soon and I know many brands are working on exciting developments for 2021.  When they open they will continue to need skilled and quality staff to work with them, and they will look to LCBT graduates to fill those opportunities.  Please work with us and remain committed to your studies so that you stand ready to take up these opportunities when we return to working life being open again.

I wish you and your families well in the coming weeks, and look forward to welcoming you back to the College soon.

Yours sincerely

Christianne C de Moncayo
