How to Become a Beauty Trainer

What do hairdressers and beauty therapists have in common? They both work with their hands to create something that gives people a sense of pride. As such, they would make great teachers and assessors.

We all know that the quality of education is important for future success in life. However, this is not always possible due to time constraints or distance from courses. Beauty therapists can teach classes at different levels, starting from school all the way up to college level courses, which is great because it would provide education opportunities for every age group. There are also programs available where beauty therapists can get their teaching and assessing certificate in less than a month.

Wow! You're really serious about training to become an assessor in the Hair and Beauty industry, aren't you? That's great because this is one of the best places for beginners. It can open up a lot more opportunities both with your career as well as business ventures down the road.

The world of beauty is an interesting one, and there are endless opportunities for those who want them. If you're interested in making your mark on this industry as both a business owner or student then be sure to get started with our guides on how best do so! To get into the industry, it’s important to have a qualification in Hair and Beauty technology. This way you can work as an assessor for colleges or even teach NVQ's!

You do your research and find a reputable company with great reviews, you then look at the assessing qualification all ready to register. Now there are many types of qualifications available! What should one choose? Does their industry have preferences as well- or does it just depend on how much time they have for this task…costs can also matter too if money isn't an option….

No fear! I will break them down here, to enable you to make an informed choice!

The Qualifications…

Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (CAVA)

I am starting with the Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (CAVA) as it is made up of all the required components for the full certificate. The other qualifications are awards, but they do not have an equal value - each has its place depending on your requirements/aspirations. But make sure you know if what kind of qualification(s) or training program that will match before choosing them because assess NVQ’s and similar can only be obtained through completing measures within this certificate itself!

The Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (CAVA) is made up of 3 units, one is theory and the other two are practical units. The theory unit for the Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (CAVA) is fairly straightforward written assignment which is required in all of the assessing awards.

You will be completing a workplace assessment in the first practical unit of the Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (CAVA). This task requires you to observe and assess within your working environment, whether it's at college or with someone who works outside of education institutions - like in the salon for example! It goes without saying that in the hair and beauty industry this is a fairly integral skill to have as most of the work is practical and workplace-based. For this unit, your methods of assessment are things like observation and products of work. The second practical unit for the Level 3 Assessment in Vocational Achievement (CAVA) is based on classroom assessing, although it doesn't literally mean teach in a classroom. Instead of assessing "on the job," you will be assessing theory or similar by using methods such as assignments, projects or even examination questions. 

Level 3 Award in Assessing Occupational Competence in the Work Environment

As you have probably grasped from the title this is the work-based element of the assessing qualification. As a standalone award, this will enable you to assess in the workplace, you will therefore be doing the theory unit and the work-based practical unit. The work-based element of this qualification will allow you to assess in the workplace, so it's perfect if maybe your salon has apprentices that need assessment or want help with theory but are not interested in teaching.

I am sure you have got the idea now! This is for those of use who wish to just assess theory-based work but not practical elements.  In my opinion, this probably isn't an option in hair and beauty industries unless maybe teaching online courses or understanding more about assessing credentials like CPD/IQA qualifications?

Level 3 Award in Understanding the Principles and Practices of Assessment

This is a great introduction to assessing and if you're not sure whether or not want to be an Hair & Beauty assessor, this course will teach the basics of how it works. It is a fantastic introduction to assessing and if you are not sure whether or not you wish to be a Hair and Beauty assessor, it is a great place to learn about assessing and the underpinning knowledge you will need. It is also great as CPD and has proven extremely popular as it is easily completed online when industries such as hair and beauty have not been able to practice. It's possible that you wish to be an IQA but would like the ability of assessing too. This unit can also work with your Award in Education and Training if this is something for which both teaching knowledge as well as best practice are necessary skills, because it will streamline things by combining theory while still keeping up on what works most effectively when doing so!

As with all education, it is important to have an open mind and try something new. If you are not sure about your future goals in life or what exactly has interested you so far- don't worry! There's no need for any learner at this point of their educational journey just yet because the "dipping toe" option can be added onto courses once they've completed the award before upgrading into the full Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (CAVA) which will allow time for consideration on whether these interests are really worth investing more money into when less expensive options might do nicely too."

Practical Criteria Requirements…

What does it take to be a successful learner in this course? It all comes down how you approach the practical element. For either (or both) of these units, you will need assess at least two learners and each student must complete 2 different assessments using different methods that are required for their unit(s). The ways students do so can vary depending on what has been taught but rest assured everything else is covered - just make sure your assessment recordings reflect what was discussed during the assessment.

Online assessing of practical units…

Now there’s a question! How do we get this done? Well, it's all about evidence. Here at the Education and Training Academy our Learner Management System will enable you to upload anything needed in order prove your assessments took place- including video footage of the feedback given to each learner on his or her assessment.
