Attending a course or tutorial day at Brighton Holistics.

The Brighton Holistics treatment is going through a major redevelopment to make sure that we offer you a safe environment to learn in. To view the images please click here.

We require all learners and models to wear a type 2 surgical facemask, not just a face-covering, learners must also wear a face shield (government guidelines update on August 13th) or goggles – polycarbonate safety spectacles or equivalent, (government guidelines update on September 11th) during their time with us, but please note that PPE will not be provided to learners or models for the course. Before your first practical day with us, you will be sent a copy of our Hygiene Policy which you must agree to, sign and return to us before attending your course. If this is not completed, you will not be allowed to attend your practical day with us at Brighton Holistics.

We have been asked what happens if someone is exempt from wearing a mask. I’m afraid our priority must be the safety and security of all our learners and team members. If you are exempt from wearing a mask you will need to defer your course until face masks are no longer a requirement. We are not discriminating or singling anyone out but, are looking after the safety of all. Not wearing a mask potentially puts other learners and the Brighton Holistics team at risk. We are extremely sorry if this causes offence or upset, however, we must follow the government guidelines and think of the safety for everyone who attends Brighton Holistics.

Please remember that we have also been affected by this dreadful virus, and we are doing everything possible to accommodate all our learners. We ask that you be understanding of this and as much as possible, allow some flexibility.
