Stillpoint Aromatics offers Aromatherapy Workshop Series “The Power of One Drop”

Joy Musacchio and Cynthia Brownley, owners of Stillpoint Aromatics, have launched a series of Aromatherapy workshops that teach proper and safe usage of pure therapeutic essential oils. In addition, the workshops are NCBTMB approved for 19 CEUs each.

Stillpoint Aromatics offers comprehensive Aromatherapy workshops that teach how essential oils are used to maintain physical and energetic health, treat chronic and acute pain, and reduce stress. Participants gain a deeper understanding of Aromatherapy and become proficient in various uses and applications of pure essential oils. These workshops use a hands-on approach where students create and take home customized aromatherapy products valued at over $200.00.

Asked why these courses were created, Brownley responds, “There is just so much mis-information regarding the safe and proper use of essential oils. We have over 22 years experience with the oils, are Certified Clinical Aromatherapists, and have extensive Aromatherapy training in the “French” medicinal technique, as well as the“English” blending method of using essential oils. We are passionate about this powerful alternative approach to health and living life in balance on all levels.”

Joy Musacchio states, “We both have our Masters degrees in Education, so teaching our Aromatherapy courses is a natural progression for us. We love teaching, and our teaching is inspired by the plants, trees, the farmers and distillers. We are continually learning and enjoy sharing our knowledge. Our workshops focus not only on the chemistry and therapeutic properties of essential oils, but also the energetic and vibrational aspect of the oils.

Each of the workshops will focus in-depth on the therapeutic and energetic uses of 25 different oils. The essential oils chosen are specific to the time of the year and the season’s energy. Students can take one, two, three or all four of the workshops. There are no prerequisites and the workshops can be taken in any order. If a student has already attended one of the four, the cost of the remaining workshops is $325.

The next workshop in the series is January 20-22, 2012. With the long awaited arrival of 2012, this workshop will focus on essential oils for “new beginnings” and bringing in the new energy of 2012. Participants will learn how to integrate pure essential oils into their life – to work with the new energies for physical, emotional and spiritual well being.

Full Speed Ahead for Postgraduate Employment

According to a new study, Rising Wage Inequality and Postgraduate Education compiled by economist lecturers and researchers Joanne Lindley of The University of Surrey, and Stephen Machin of University College London, there are some interesting distinctions to be made between first degree graduate employment and postgraduate.

Students studying postgraduate programmes have more than doubled in the UK since 1996, from 4% to 11% in 2009. There has also been a steady increase in the share of postgraduate employment in the UK, rising from 30% in 1980 to 37% in 2009. Alongside the increase in postgraduate employability there has also been a remarkable increase in the wage gap between classic graduates and postgraduates, rising from 6% in 1996 to 13% in 2009.

The possible reason for growth is due to technological change and advancement across many industries in the UK. These are industries that are more likely to be involved in R&D, innovation, computer usage and investment in computers. This is good news for postgraduates, as their technical skills such as, advanced numeracy, high levels of analysing complex problems, and specialist knowledge or understanding are increasingly required in these areas.

According to the 2010 Labour Force Survey, the top occupations for Masters graduates are: Secondary Education Teachers, Software Professionals, Marketing and Sales Managers, Management Consultants, Actuaries, Economists and Statisticians and Information and Communications Technology Managers. All these roles require the advanced skills that Masters graduates learn at University.

Finding the right Masters degree can be extremely time consuming – FindAMasters holds a comprehensive database of postgraduate programmes from across the globe, in one place including courses such as.

Travel and Learn with UIC

UIC Languages gives students the unique opportunity to study and sightsee at the same time. Many students that come to London to study also want to experience the cultural history of the city – so, UIC tires to include social outings in its curriculum.

Students enrolled at the institute have the benefit of a great location, from which all of London’s major sightseeing venues can be accessed. In addition, the school’s certified teachers are always on standby to provide information on using the city’s public transport. At UIC, students are encouraged to enjoy their time in London, because this helps to limit the impact of homesickness. When students are sightseeing, they can practise their English and meet new friends – allowing them to enjoy the learning experience.

The school also arranges social outings that students can attend during the semester. Popular winter activities include ice-skating in front of the Natural History Museum and visiting the Christmas lights along Regent and Oxford Streets. During these outings students will mingle with English speakers and learn how to cope in a social setting.

By combining travelling and learning, UIC Languages gives students an opportunity to use their language skills in everyday circumstances. This practical approach to studying ensures that the students see language proficiency as a tool that can be used to make friends and negotiate business dealings.

Modern study methodologies are using the streets as a practical lab for language students. Today, the rules of English are still learnt in the classroom, but it’s out in public where this theory is applied.

UIC London on a Winning Streak

UIC London have had a very successful few months, with two top awards being handed to them. The first was the British Council’s ELTon Award for Digital Innovation, and the second was the STAR English Language School for Europe Award.

The STAR award is a highly respected award which is voted for by people working at the sharp end of the language travel industry – that is, the agents who actually book people on to language courses. They know exactly what students want from a language course and work to find it, so they are great judges of quality in language schools. From the point of view of UIC London, what makes this achievement even greater is the fact that past winners have tended to be larger and longer-established than relatively small UIC.

Speaking of the awards, a spokesman for UIC London said:

‘We were delighted and very surprised to win the STAR Language school award. We were up against bigger and longer established schools in the shortlist so winning was a great confirmation we are doing something right. This award is voted on by agents from around the world and the main thing they are interested in is good service.’

The ELTon award that UIC received is an award for a specific project – in this case, the UIC Communication Station. This exciting course allows students to combine their regular English study with learning how to make and broadcast their very own radio show.

Language Students and School Develop Together

As the year draws to a close, it is time to start looking ahead and setting goals for 2012. If learning a new language or improving your skills in a certain language is something you know you need to do, don’t put it off any longer. Although you may already be aware of the benefits of learning a language, you probably also know that it requires time and dedication. This creates a particular dilemma for anyone who lives here in the UK and needs to learn English. Strong English skills are necessary for success here in the UK but for busy professionals, finding time for classes can be very difficult. Those who live in London and want to learn a foreign language also face a dilemma in that without classes, they might not have much exposure the language they want to learn. Fortunately, one particular language school is making learning convenient and enjoyable.

St George International has been helping students achieve their language goals for almost 40 years and the school continues to grow. They have many evening classes that are perfect for busy professionals and have recently added even more. It is no coincidence that as SGI is helping students to grow and develop, the school itself is also growing and developing.

SGI has an excellent selection of English as well as foreign language courses. Recent additions include courses such as Business English, Business English Writing, Academic English Writing and English exam preparation courses. If you want to learn French London is a wonderful place to learn and with the support of SGI’s helpful teachers, you will be speaking French in no time. The same is true for anyone wishing to learn Spanish in London. With SGI, you will get the support and attention you need to exceed your own expectations.
