benefits of beauty teaching course with Ray Cochrane

So you have decided that you want to pursue a career as a beauty assessor and can’t choose a school for your beauty assessor course? Maybe you have read our previous blog on the VTCT Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement and need that final push.

As one of the longest-running beauty schools in the UK, founded in 1954, we fully understand the demands of beauty students. Through these years of experience, we have mastered high-quality teaching and facilities that put our students ahead in the beauty industry.

What makes Ray Cochrane different from other centres?

We have received many emails from students looking for volunteer positions to achieve their assessing practice hours for their beauty assessor course. This information surprised us, as schools they studied in should help their students’ progress and offer them a placement for their hours. Unfortunately, those schools only offer generic assessor courses and have no vacation training background.  

Apparently, this is a common practice for some assessor training schools, and therefore students spend a lot of money on a course that doesn’t prepare them effectively for teaching or assessing roles.

Why Choose us for Your Beauty Assessor Qualification?

At Ray Cochrane, we offer hands-on classroom experience as part of our assessing qualifications. We support you on your training journey so that once you achieve your qualification, you will be industry-ready.

Flexible Learning

You will study theory online in your own time and complete assignments at your own pace. Once the theoretical learning is complete, you will attend one of our conveniently located central London campuses to receive hands-on experience in our live classrooms with our experienced tutors.

Fear not though, you will still have access to your tutors for assistance! Whether through messaging, email or zoom, the dedicated support is there as you complete your course.

Remember: Flexible learning comes with great responsibility and commitment. You are responsible for ensuring you get your assignments done. Similar to the work of a beauty assessor who often works independently. Through the flexible learning of the beauty assessor course, you can learn to focus in various work environments and manage your time efficiently.

Hands-on Classroom Experience

Hands-on teaching and assessing will help you to prepare for the practical part of teaching. We offer an immersive classroom experience through:

  • Guiding students through our experienced staff and their extensive knowledge.
  • Students will observe our tutors conducting their lessons in theory and practice. You will assist them and the students during these sessions.
  • The opportunity to invigilate a classroom of students completing theory exams.
  • Practice marking assignments from our VTCT courses in line with your qualifications and skills.
  • For your assessment qualification, you will assess a cohort of learners as they complete their practical assessments. You will provide them with feedback and determine if their assessment was competent or not yet competent. You will also record achieved assessments in their portfolio.
  • As part of the teaching qualification, you will conduct a micro-teaching session on a topic related to your qualifications and training level. 
  • You will be assessed during these processes by the tutor/assessor and receive feedback.
  • Your assessor will also be able to provide you with advice on how to improve in certain areas. This advice and guidance is essential and will help you to improve your skills as a teacher and/or assessor.
