Students' Views of LCBT, Lockdown and Remote Learning

"Hey everyone, my name is Ellie Birch, I’m currently studying Level 2 Hair & Media makeup at LCBT. Due to the pandemic at the moment, I’m currently studying at home, however this hasn’t stopped me from pursuing my future career path thanks to my lecturer, Yasmin Brown as well as the college.

My class has begun learning online, with different links and example work to replicate tasks I have to complete myself. Although it’s a shame we cannot attend in person, LCBT has ensured that I’m still able to do what I would usually do in person with set practical’s & regular check-ins on zoom.

We’ve even had set work based on mental health which is honestly amazing! As during times like this it’s so so important to support and help others.

Hopefully we can get back to some sort of normality soon! I’d also like to thank the college for being so supportive. :)"
