Teach Natural Skincare Workshops

“This year I taught Russian-language workshops in Moscow and Minsk. Our interesting Formula Botanica courses such as the Anti-aging, the Chocolate Spa and the Facial masques are very popular. The best response I got from my students was: ‘It’s such a pleasure to be pampered with an aroma therapeutic chocolate mask and know that after a session I will look not only beautiful, but also healthy!'”

Module 1 – The Science of Teaching & Learning

Most people consider learning and teaching to be the same thing, but they are not. Think of a time when someone tried to teach you something and you learned nothing. The person teaching may have inferred their knowledge upon you but it doesn’t mean that you actually learned it.

This Module is to help you understand the science of teaching. You’ll study teaching and learning styles and complete activities to help you understand the needs of your learners.

Unit Title

The Science of Teaching & Learning

Unit Content

Understanding teaching and learning styles so that you can set up a system to rely on when you teach.

Learn to incorporate Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs into your skincare workshop planning so that you ensure that the needs of your students are met and they can learn effectively.

Learn to implement Kolb’s Learning Cycle into your teaching methods in order to make your natural and organic skincare workshops educational as well as fun.

Make use of the full spectrum outline in Bloom’s taxonomy to help you as a teacher engage your students to the max, enabling a deep-learning experience.

Module 2 – Technical Aspects of Teaching Skincare Formulation

Instead of trying to write or deliver one long workshop, think of your organic and natural skincare workshop as a series of mini-lessons each with its own introduction, project activity and conclusion/summation. You can then gear each of these mini-lessons to ensure that your student achieves their learning outcomes.

This module is to help you get to grips with the practical and technical aspects of teaching skincare workshops. You will learn techniques for making your workshops engaging and fun!

Planning and Facilitating

Unit Content

Learn how to break down a workshop into lots of mini-lessons to ensure your student easily learns how to create organic skincare.

Think through multimedia, seating arrangements and tutor-student interaction in order to make your workshops engaging and easy to follow.

Learn ‘group-splitting’ tactics to break down the workshop group into smaller units for mini-projects and activities.

Module 3 – Selling and Marketing your Workshops

Now you know how to set up and teach your workshops, so the next step is to get people to attend. There are lots of marketing tips and tricks which you can use to make sure that your workshops are a sell-out each time!

This module is to help you to market and sell your workshops, using a variety of methods and techniques. You’ll also learn how to cost your workshop properly so that you can set your price and teaching fees.

Selling and Marketing your Workshops

Unit Content

Run through the requirements you need to set when choosing an appropriate venue for teaching your workshops.

Learn how to calculate your ‘break-even’ workshop cost and price your workshops so that you make a profit.

Study how to create a 3-month marketing plan to help you make those all-important sales in the run-up to launching your workshop.

Learn how to market and sell your natural and organic skincare workshops using Eventbrite and Facebook.

Module 4 – Legalities

Now it’s time to ensure that you conduct your workshops in a professional manner in compliance with all relevant laws and regulations. It’s really important to show ‘due diligence’ when you’re in charge of the welfare of others. Although making skincare isn’t the world’s most dangerous activity it does come with risks and hazards.

This module is perhaps the most important one of all. There’s no point in becoming an amazing skincare tutor, with well-attended classes and a brilliant marketing plan if one day it all comes crashing down because you failed to comply with certain rules and regulations. In this module you will learn how to be a teacher that works safely.
