Profession beauty vocational teacher

Beauty vocational teachers instruct students in their specialised field of study, beauty, which is predominantly practical in nature. They provide theoretical instruction in service of the practical skills and techniques the students must subsequently master for a cosmetology-related profession, such as manicurist and make-up and hair designer. Beauty vocational teachers monitor the students' progress, assist individually when necessary, and evaluate their knowledge and performance on the subject of cosmetology through assignments, tests and examinations.
