Award in Education and Training (AET) (Online Course)

There is a huge demand for teachers in the professional beauty industry which is why for so many therapists, the next step in their career is to teach. Working as a therapist or a nail technician in a salon or in your own business gives you years of valuable experience. You can put this experience to use by training the next generation of beauty professionals.

A course for experienced beauty therapists, holistic therapists and nail technicians who are new to teaching; the Award in Education and Training is the recognised and accredited UK entry-level teaching qualification.

Students must be prepared to work on an intensive basis over one week. The best approach is to work on the tasks every day (usually evenings) and over one weekend.

The course is delivered online with dedicated tutor support to give you guidance and feedback on your assignments and your lesson plan for the micro-teach session (delivered at the end of the week).

Students are required to read course notes, participate in discussion forums and complete the set assignments/tasks. Tasks include producing a 15-minute lesson plan, presenting the lesson to the rest of the group, evaluation of another micro teach session and then producing a reflective journal summarising your learning experience.

As with all of the courses offered at Gateway International College, full tutorial support is available throughout your learning experience and course materials are provided including clear and easy-to-understand course documents and audio/visual resources.
