The Level 3 Assessing Vocational course will train students to work as fully qualified beauty assessors to the national standard. Suitable for those who have already trained and worked in the beauty industry and looking for a new career. The course modules cover the principles and practices of assessments to understand the different types of assessments. Learners will understand how to plan their teaching assessments and complete quality assurance for them. Finally, the learner will develop their skills in assessing vocational skills, knowledge and understanding.

To successfully gain the level 3 assessing vocational achievement certificate, students must complete an internal and external assessment and submit a portfolio of evidence. Learners will have their skills as beauty tutors evaluated through a practical assessment within a classroom, vocational setting or training environment. 

At Ray Cochrane, we have specially created the course based on the shortcomings of many other Online Level 3 Assessing Vocational Achievement courses. Students enrolled on our trusted beauty assessor training will undergo their theory online, and once completed, we will arrange 3 shadowing sessions. These shadowing sessions will have students following our experienced tutors as they conduct live in-person assessments. This hands-on training will enable learners to watch the marking process and understand the assessment standard they should aim for. The shadowing sessions offer learners a first-hand beauty assessor training experience that other online training courses do not offer!

Once the shadowing sessions are complete, learners will be invited back to the school to complete their assessment which will have them assessing two students whilst being monitored. Due to the shadowing experience, students will already know how to complete a beauty assessment correctly.

Undertaking beauty assessor training is highly rewarding and leads to a profitable career for a confident, experienced, talented beauty therapist.
