VTCT and Cengage Learning making the price rightJason Firmager
VTCT and Cengage Learning have teamed up to provide VTCT approved centres with high quality blended learning resources at economic rates.
Centres offering VTCT qualifications can now order best-selling print and digital resources for Hairdressing, Beauty Therapy or Catering at an exclusive discounted price, helping you ensure your students have the resources they need to succeed, and helping your college meet the requirements of the FELTAG report.
As an expansion to their existing partnership, VTCT and Cengage Learning are exploring the delivery of innovative digital resources, to support education providers and help their budgets stretch further. The aim is to develop materials so that course concepts come to life with a variety of interactive teaching and learning resources which can be perfectly integrated in to the classroom to cover the guided learning hours for each unit.
Ashley Barnes, VTCT Director of Education and Standards said: “We are pleased to be able to assist our centres in accessing high quality teaching resources at reduced prices. Colleges and other training providers operate within tight budgets and anything VTCT can do to help teachers and learners gain access to good teaching material ensures achievement and standards are met.”
