What is Pivot Point LAB?

Pivot Point LAB is an Online Learning Platform that can enhance the delivery of Level 2 and 3 Hairdressing and Barbering qualifications, and Level 2 and 3 Beauty Therapy and Nail qualifications.

Tutors can use LAB as a standalone resource or in collaboration with their personally developed library of resources. The aim is to offer multiple methods of teaching and learning for the benefit of different learning styles. This allows you to take the best from both worlds to create a dynamic and diverse collection of tools.

By selecting from a series of pre-loaded learning pathways mapped to a range of qualifications, LAB allows you to create unique, custom learning pathways for every cohort.

Why Pivot Point LAB:

LAB has been optimised to support the ever-changing requirements of educators and learners both in and out of the classroom.

For 2023/24 there will be over 600 Lessons to support Hairdressing, Barbering, Beauty Therapy and Nails Qualifications at Level 2 and 3.

LAB is available 24/7 on Computers, Laptops, Tablets, and Smartphones. It can be accessed on any device with internet capabilities.

We’ve built a range of package options to suit every user and to ensure you can get the most of LAB.
