VRQ Level 2 and Level 3 Adult sector . Foundation Degree training in Media make-up and Hair styling.

I was course leader for level 2 VRQ media makeup for Moston and Northendan Campus .

When I began there was no scheme of work for either level 2 or level 3 . I developed the scheme of work , making the content more relevant to requirements of the media. I also changed the kits along with the resources available to use by the students. I designed handouts to support the content of the scheme of work and powerpoints .

I taught up to 28 students in each class , total of 3 classes in both makeup and hair for level 2 .

I would like to return to teaching in further and higher education

Assisting students with Portfolio development using Models to create make-up looks used for their books.

During portfolio development, I would show students how to choose the clothing as a fashion stylist and create hairstyles to compliment their make-up designs.

As a self taught photographer, I captured the make-up looks on the Models
with a variety of lightning techniques in our full studio. This also gave the students opportunity to train on how
to apply makeup under any lighting conditions, work "On Set" and maintain make-up looks.

My key responsibilities
· Developing lesson plans and contributing to the improvement of new courses
· Interviewing potential students and answering concerns or questions about make-up Artist careers
· Administration of day to day running of a make-up school as well as maintaining stock / equipment
· Design and hosting stand at make-up conventions demonstrating inspirational makeup application
· Undertaking group tutorials in Media and also Fashion makeup along with hair styling / hairdressing
· Individual tuition for students who require additional support and encouragement to achieve aspirations
· Photography of student portfolio work using SLR camera and full studio lighting equipment
