Covid Update

On Tuesday 29 March, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Sajid Javid, set out the next steps for living with COVID-19 in England from Friday 1 April.

Updated guidance advises:

  • Adults with the symptoms of a respiratory infection, and who have a high temperature or feel unwell, should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until they feel well enough to resume normal activities and no longer have a high temperature.
  • Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can return to college when they no longer have a high temperature, and are well enough to attend.
  • Adults with a positive COVID-19 test result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days, which is when they are most infectious. For children and young people aged 18 and under, the advice is 3 days.

For education and childcare settings from Friday 1 April:

  • Regular asymptomatic testing is no longer recommended in any education or childcare setting, including in SEND, alternative provision and children’s social care settings. Therefore, we will no longer be able to order test kits .

From Bristol

She has always had an interest in hair dressing and particularly hair up for weddings through self taught practice and decided to embark on a career she could work around her family with a plan to convert a caravan in her back garden into a bespoke hair salon, giving the flexibility to work from home.

She successfully completed the Level 2 NVQ diploma in hair dressing last year and has returned this year to complete her NVQ Level 3 diploma so that she can offer advanced cutting and colouring techniques to her growing client base

Quotes from Rachel

She said "the flexibility of a part-time course that fits around school hours made this a real option for me"

"During the course I entered a National hairdressing competition and made it to the finals, it was a great opportunity to showcase my skills and it gave me a great confidence boost."

"I would recommend this course to anyone wanting to change career or start a new one, I had great support from my tutor throughout the course"
