What is Pivot Point LAB?

Centres can log into LAB here

Pivot Point LAB is an Online Learning Platform that is integral to the delivery of specific iTEC and VTCT Level 2 and 3 Hairdressing and Barbering qualifications, and Level 2 Beauty Therapy qualifications.

For years, online learning has been one of the most talked-about education topics, also in our industry. And due to the Covid-19
pandemic, distance education is now considered critical to the future success of our schools and learners.

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

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

By selecting from a series of pre-loaded pathways mapped to each qualification Pivot Point LAB allows you to create unique, custom learning pathways for every cohort. Tutors also have access to over 40 sets of presentation slides to support classroom delivery.
