PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICE OF COSMETIC SCIENCE - INTENSIVE RESIDENTIAL COURSE
This course was formerly known as the 'Intensive Residential Course' and provided an induction course for new recruits to the industry. As a response to changing needs, significant changes have been introduced. It will now be targeted at scientists who have been working in the industry for a few years and are looking to move on to more managerial or supervisory roles, primarily but not exclusively in the scientific functions.
The course will still involve a challenging product development exercise. However, the lectures have now been organized to support the exercise more effectively. The lectures on any given day will provide information relevant to the evening's work on the exercise. It is intended that reinforcement of the learning process will be achieved by practical application of the material provided in the lectures. Additionally, some relevant managerial skills will also be provided, such as, team working & project management. The objective is to maximize the learning experience of the participants.
The course is recognised under the Continuous Professional Development Schemes of both the Society of Biology and the Royal Society of Chemistry!
The Course runs every two years, recently a very successful course took place in March 2012. The next course will run 9 - 14 March 2014 in Bournemouth.Programme details will be available shortly.
