Nuts and Bolts Training, a leading provider of business education programs for cosmetology professionals, has completely rewritten its curriculum to recognize the changing needs of young people growing up in a multimedia world.
The new Cornerstone series incorporates the latest research in effective teaching methods, adapting all materials for online learning; introducing video and multimedia support to provide up-to-the-minute information about critical applied business skills students need to build a successful career.
Recognizing that today’s new professionals need an ever-widening range of skill-sets, the series includes a segment taking students through the finer points of financial literacy and develops their interview and job search skills. It also includes a "how to succeed in the job" checklist covering the first 90 days of employment.
The latest wave of students at Nuts & Bolts-affiliated schools, who have grown up as digital natives living much of their lives online, can now access the same in-depth learning materials Nuts and Bolts has always specialized in, but in a format that more closely reflects the way they interact with the world in all other areas of their lives, on a PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone.
The fresh materials include a set of video interviews with successful professionals, who speak about the importance of applied business skills in developing a rewarding and long-lasting career.
Finally, Nuts and Bolts’ revamped support materials include an array of PowerPoint lesson plans, activities and practice quizzes that beauty school instructors can utilize in the classroom.
Nuts and Bolts VP, Curriculum & Business Development, Rich Hansberger said, "It’s not enough these days to be a great stylist or therapist – you also need to know what it takes to be successful in business. Our new curriculum brings in changes that give graduates the essential knowledge they need to succeed at all levels, and delivers it in a format that is far more user-friendly for students who are used to learning and accessing information on a screen."
