As we eased back into our face to face training during August and early September we were so please to see our students back in the training academy. We have had the pleasure of delivering a variety of different courses to suit all students needs and help with their hobbies or future career changes. We thought we would praise all students and give them the heads up they deserve especially as this year must be one of the toughest years on record!
4 Methods Hair Extensions Training Course.
Firstly, congratulations to Courtney who came to us to study on one of our Hair Extension Technician Courses. This course taught her everything she needed to know about being a hair extension technician. During the training Courtney learned all 4 methods that included Shrinkie Tubes, Micro rings, Tape Weave and Micro Bead Sew in Weave. This course covers everything from consultation to fitting the various systems to aftercare advise for the client. It is a comprehensive course in which Courtney excelled during her training.
Beginners Photography Workshop.
In recent weeks we have also delivered training to our amateur/ beginners on our Beginners Photography Workshop. This group session was delivered in accordance with government guidelines and social distancing observed.
During these workshops students learn everything about basic photography skills. From composition, use of light, camera settings, aperture, shutter speeds, ISO and taking great photos instead of just snap shots.
We would like to say well done to all students that have attended and started on their photography journey.
Therefore a huge congratulations to:-
We hope you go on and create some magical images and hope too see you on the intermediate workshop soon.
5 Week Intensive Barbering Course.
During August we had students attend our Intensive Barbering Course. This course was delivered to students in the format of theory and practical assessment. Training and skills were attained on mannequin heads as well as live models once the government lifted restrictions. Students learned various cutting techniques using clippers, scissors, thinning scissors and cut throat razors. Once the skills were attained students went on to create graduated cuts, skin fades, texturised cuts and layered cuts. Included in this training is facial hair trimming on beards and eyebrows and also threading eyebrows too.
Our student Ivona lit up when she achieved her learning goals and has a real gift. Congratulations Ivona we wish you well in your new career as a barber!
Intermediate Photography Course.
Our intermediate photography course takes place on location around Lichfield city centre. It gives students a great opportunity to take shots in situ.
It gives students the opportunity to study the following modules to improve and move on from their basic photography skills:
1.Discussion of areas that each student wants to improve.
2.Reaffirm and expand on the exposure triangle and exposure control (exposure bracketing & HDR).
3.Pre-visualise the shot in your mind so you shoot with intent not randomly.
4.Learn to use the tools of composition to help you achieve your aim and get the WOW in your shots.
5.Show you how to really engage with your subjects seeing beneath the surface.
6.Look at light – learn what is good and bad light.
7.Learn to shoot mindfully and with curiosity.
It was a pleasure teaching:
