Student Teacher

Part Time - Monday to Wednesday - 8:30 am to 5:00 pm

The Educational Objective of the Student Teacher Course at the Sharon Hill Campus (PA only) and Aston Campus (PA & DE) is to provide the advanced instruction, training, and preparation needed to deal with the many aspects of teaching.  The student will learn to utilize and incorporate the use of psychology and to communicate the transfer skills, knowledge, and ideas to his/her students in the classroom or carry it over into the salon. Although the State of Pennsylvania only requires 500 hours for this course, our working curriculum for the Student Teacher Course has increased to 600 Hours, so that our future Teachers will have a greater understanding in creating curriculums, course outlines, student motivational skills, identifying different types of learners, and increased student interaction.   (Specialized License Required).
