Educators & Students Take Distance Learning in Stride

 

We’re weeks into distance learning and our educators & students are doing an amazing job ❤️

Video chatting has been our new best friend! So much of our learning is hands-on, it’s hard to imagine being able to understand what we teach through a screen. However, educators like Miss Kate (and others!), are using every platform they can to teach step-by-step instructions, tutorials, and more to our eager students. Even Nico joined in the fun! Of course, coffee is always close by 😉

Again, we want to send a huge thank you to all our educators and students for continuing to work together during these unprecedented times. We hope everyone continues to stay safe and healthy. Be sure to stay tuned for more updates on distance learning with our students and educators!

Distance Learning Continues at The Salon Professional Academy

 

Our students and educators are doing such a great job at adapting to Distance Learning ❤️Adapting to this new style of learning is unique & has its challenges, but our incredible students have been up to the challenge, along with our educators who are embracing teaching via video conferencing, powerpoints, and lectures. We are finishing up week three of distance learning and we’re looking forward to taking on week four…

Thank you to all our educators and students for continuing to work together during these unprecedented times. We hope everyone continues to stay safe and healthy.

Be sure to stay tuned for more updates on distance learning with our students and educators!

Tips For Taking Online Beauty School Classes At TSPA

Wish we could be on campus with our ARTIST’s but instead, we’re bringing campus to you! 🏫➡️💻.

The Salon Professional Academy (TSPA) just launched temporary distance-learning or temporary online learning for our cosmetology and esthetics programs. Just like it is for you, it is new to us as well. We are all a little stressed and adapting to our new world as quickly as possible. To make your transition into the beauty world smooth, here are our top 3 tips to help you launch your online classes –

Tips For Online Learning:

  1.  Manage your time. Set up a view of your daily & weekly schedule by first mapping out a calendar of all of the assignment and activity due dates along with work and family commitments. It’s okay to be selfish, block off time each week to get classwork done. Online classes tend to have a weekly flow and include discussion boards that require student participation. Plan to be a part of the conversation.
  2. Be a good participant. Good discussions are thoughtful, your best resources to help you bring good discussion starters can be from peer conversations, headlines, lecture and course materials. Great responses go beyond agreeing with your peers. Build on the discussion with your own ideas and experiences.
  3. Build your social community. Share contact information with your peers to connect on homework assignments and for social support. Be a part of  TSPA’s Facebook pages for enrolled students to get the best information fast and easy access to peer conversations on campus and homework topics. Your campus is here to support you every step of the way. Online students benefit from the same support as on-campus students, including help with financial aid to questions about technique.

Be kind to yourself. We are all in uncharted territory right now but we all have each other’s support even if it’s temporarily from a distance right now.

Trade Schools On The Rise: How much does it cost to go to Cosmetology school?

At first glance, Cosmetology school may seem expensive, however, it is much more affordable than other 4-year college programs. Attending an accredited cosmetology school will usually cost anywhere between $5,000 to $20,000*. This total cost of attendance usually includes your tuition and the costs of books and supplies you may need to complete your classes.

If the cost of Cosmetology school seems like a big, scary number to you, don’t worry – we have options at The Salon Professional Academy Buffalo to help you bring down costs!

The Salon Professional Academy Buffalo is approved by the Department of Education. What does that mean? You could qualify for federal funding through grants, scholarships or loans to help you pay for school! While loans do have to be repaid, any grants and scholarships you may qualify for do not have to be repaid when you’re done with school. Cool, right?

We know what you’re thinking next… how do I know if I qualify? You can call our Financial Aid Office and they can help you with the steps to find out if you qualify for financial aid! The most important step is to fill out your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.ed.gov.

While you’re crunching the numbers to see if Cosmetology school is a good choice for you, remember what you are paying for at The Salon Professional Academy Buffalo beyond the diploma: Professors that want to see you succeed, small class sizes and a hands-on and innovative training environment.

Want a more specific idea on how much Cosmetology school would cost for you? You can check out our Net Price Calculator to calculate your estimated school costs.

Here at The Salon Professional Academy Buffalo, we want to help you be able to afford Cosmetology school and make sure this process is as easy as can be. If at any time you have questions about program costs, feel free to contact our Financial Aid Office at (716) 243-3311.

DEMAND GROWS FOR TRADE SCHOOL GRADS: Is Cosmetology a Good Career Choice?

A Cosmetology Degree is Your Path to a Better Future!

Why?

The beauty industry is worth $523 billion dollars. The average American woman even spends nearly a quarter of a million dollars on hair and make-up in her lifetime!

That’s why the job outlook for cosmetologists, barbers, hairstylists, and make-up artists is better than any other field right now. The need is so great that you can start working and earning as soon as you complete a short trade school certificate in cosmetology!

How can you cash in on this trend?

  1. Investigate the different skills you can develop. You can become a hairstylist, make-up artist, skincare specialist, and more.
  2. Search for trade schools in your area or online to see what’s available.
  3. Talk to admissions counselors to find out what program is right for you.
  4. Enroll in a program at a trade or cosmetology school. Programs are short and affordable, and available in all areas of cosmetology.

An affordable trade school certificate can put you on the road to work in no time. If you want a career path with a stable financial future, consider enrolling in a cosmetology program! Start School From Your Home – Online learning has begun. Book your virtual tour with Carolyn 716-243-3311
