Staying Safe at The Beauty Academy

Updated 16th August 2021:

With some changes to guidance around self-isolation requirements, we have updated our Covid-secure policy accordingly.

Please do not attend our training centre/courses if:

  • You have received a positive PCR test result for Covid and need to isolate for 10 days from test result and until symptoms have resolved.
  • You have been asked to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace and are within your 10 full day isolation period.
  • You live with someone who has tested positive for Covid and you are aged over 18 years 6 months and have not been fully vaccinated; but are not exempt due to being unable to be vaccinated due to medical reasons.
  • If you are displaying new and possible symptoms of Covid and therefore need to obtain a PCR test urgently. The three main symptoms remain as per government advice as: a new and continuous cough, a fever or high temperature, or a loss of or change in sense of taste or smell. Cold or mild flu-like symptoms do not necessarily indicate Covid and therefore while recommended to obtain a PCR test, if lateral flow tests are negative and you feel well enough to attend, government advice is currently that you can still attend training settings.

Please contact our team at [email protected] as soon as possible to reschedule your training. Our team be happy to waive the fee to reschedule once you have provided proof with a text or email notification of a positive PCR test result, booked PCR test appointment coinciding with your booked training or guidance specifically for you to self-isolate e.g. notification from NHS Test and Trace.

With restrictions relaxing as of 19th July, we are keen to maintain safety of both staff and students as a priority. In line with this, we will be maintaining our Covid-secure measures on an ongoing basis for the foreseeable, at all centres.

  • Students are required to continue to wear a face mask when attending our centres for courses and/or assessments (unless medically exempt).
  • Any models attending with students as part of VTCT assessment days will also be required to wear a fask mask (unless exempt).
  • Staff will continue to wear PPE & continue with strict hygiene and cleaning measures to maintain the safety and well-being of all who attend our centres.

We thank you for your co-operation with this and hope this will reassure you when attending for training or assessment. 

Please ensure you remain within these practices for your safety and that of staff, other students and/or visitors to our centres and head office. If you have any questions regarding any of the above, please do not hesitate to get in touch with our team on Freephone 0800 999 2277.

The official guidance from the Government website updated 13th August and effective as of 16th August states:

  • If you are fully vaccinated or aged under 18 years and 6 months, or you are not able to get vaccinated for medical reasons, you will not be required to self-isolate if you live in the same household as someone with COVID-19. This is provided you do not personally have symptoms of Covid-19 and/or have received a recent positive test result or been notified by NHS Test and Trace that you need to immediately self-isolate.
  • If you develop symptoms of COVID-19, stay at home and self-isolate immediately, other than leaving your home for a PCR test (if home test unavailable). If you have a positive test result but do not have symptoms, stay at home and self-isolate as soon as you receive the results. Your household needs to isolate too, if they are not otherwise exempt.
  • If you are notified by NHS Test and Trace of a positive test result you must complete your full isolation period, except for certain situations where you had an assisted LFD test which was followed up by a negative PCR test. Your isolation period starts immediately from when your symptoms started, or, if you do not have any symptoms, from when your test was taken. Your isolation period includes the day your symptoms started (or the day your test was taken if you do not have symptoms), and the next 10 full days. This means that if, for example, your symptoms started at any time on the 15th of the month (or if you did not have symptoms but your first positive COVID-19 test was taken on the 15th), your isolation period ends at 23:59hrs on the 25th.
  • You can return to your normal routine and stop self-isolating after 10 full days if your symptoms have gone, or if the only symptoms you have are a cough or anosmia, which can last for several weeks. If you still have a high temperature after 10 days or are otherwise unwell, stay at home and seek medical advice.
  • If you are isolating because of a positive test result but did not have any symptoms, and you develop COVID-19 symptoms within your isolation period, start a new 10 day isolation period by counting 10 full days from the day following your symptom onset.
  • If you develop COVID-19 symptoms at any point after ending your first period of isolation you and your household should follow the steps in this guidance again.

    I have done a few courses at the Cambridge and London venues and loved all of them. Staff is very friendly and professional at the same time which makes it easy to learn the theory and also the techniques. Teachers pay attention to each student and gives honest advises and support. I highly recommend The Beauty Academy for everyone.
