Teacher Training

Earn excellent money doing something you love!

Teach people how to make their own gorgeous natural skincare products by running your own workshops, classes and parties!

We are so delighted to invite you to join our flagship Teacher Training program! 

Its a fully ONLINE course meaning you can study with us from wherever you live and run classes in YOUR area – wherever that may be!

Five years ago I started with an idea.

 

I wanted to live more naturally and more simply and as part of a big lifestyle change I started making all my own natural skincare products.

 

I created my own skincare range and started selling my products. Then I realized other people out there also wanted to learn to make their own products.

 

I decided to run a class to teach people. It was scary at first as no one else was doing anything like it.  I had absolutely no idea what would happen!

 

Would people come? Would they pay? Could I do it? It was a huge leap of faith. And guess what? It paid off!

 

The answers to all those questions turned out to be YES!

 

Fast forward a couple of years and what started as a hobby and some extra income on the side had become a business that could support me and my family.

 

We both left our office jobs to live and teach our passion every day.

And now we’re giving YOU the opportunity to do the same!

Do what you love

Share your passion

Inspire and empower people

Have fun

and make really good money!

We’ve spent five years creating a business model that works and now we want to teach it to you

Yes, really! I can’t quite believe we are giving it all away. But we are.

Now is your chance to do something you love and earn excellent money doing it!

We want to see more and more people teaching these valuable skills and empowered to be supporting their families at the same time.

There is a huge interest in natural skincare and so many people wanting to learn. There is also a huge shortage of teachers, workshops and classes.  Go on – have a look on Google and see what you can find. Not much! Which is GREAT news for you!

We certainly cannot fill the demand which is why we are giving you the opportunity to learn from us and become a teacher too! 

“It is a fantastic course and I am so happy that I found it!  Everything is very well explained and the information about all aspects of becoming a teacher is very complete. I especially love the modules on marketing, finding students and running a successful workshop. It’s wonderful learning a lot about natural ingredients, how they work together and the importance of making a product correctly.

It is an honour and a pleasure to be able to teach such a beautiful subject and something I am passionate about. Natural skincare is beautiful, exciting and the right thing for us and the environment. It is a huge contribution to my business as I am able to offer a new and exciting service that complements my shop so well.”

Be fully supported each step of the way

Have your successful and profitable business up and running in no time!

“Through the Teacher Training program I’ve gained a realistic, practical way of making a wish become a reality!

It was wonderful to learn from knowledgeable and experienced tutors and share my fears and uncertainties. I’m much more confident and don’t feel alone anymore. Can’t wait to get started!”

The training has given me a fresh burst of enthusiasm and energy! I knew I wanted to start a new line of business but wasn’t sure about starting right from the beginning.  With the aid of the teacher training, I haven’t had to start from scratch and so much information is provided, I haven’t felt daunted at all about setting out on a new path. The most useful?  The workshop blueprints. I’ve had no experience of training others, so this has made the difference of whether I would do it or not.

The training is giving me the opportunity to free up my time and earn as much (if not more) in fewer hours. I’ve known for a while that I didn’t want to continue the level of massage I have been doing as it is getting more tiring for me the older I get! When I have my workshops up and running, I will have more available time to spend with my wonderful friends and family.”

Can you explain a bit more about the blueprints and how the license works?

We provide the workshop blueprints so that you have a complete step-by-step guide to running a workshop. This is a format and structure that we’ve refined over the last five years and we know works really well for both complete beginners and those with some knowledge already. They include teaching about types of products, ingredients, essential oils, health and safety and the actual making of the products. We also include a suggested schedule (useful for staying on track!).

The materials included in the blueprints remain our copyright and are loaned to you by means of the license for one year. To continue using them after a year you’ll need to renew your license. Renewing your license also means that you’ll continue to receive coaching and help from us and you can also be listed on our website which is a great way of promoting your workshops.

You don’t have to renew the license. If you go on to create your own materials and workshops and won’t be using ours after the first year then it’s not necessary. If you want to continue using our workshop blueprints and enjoy the other benefits of being licensed teacher then you’ll need to renew.

Is this a franchise?

No, the teacher training is not a franchise. You can run your business as you wish and the profits you make are yours. You will be granted a license to use the School of Natural Skincare workshop blueprints, materials, logos and brand for one year as set out in the Teacher Training agreement. You will have the option to renew your license each year to continue to use our workshop blueprints and materials. Briefly the agreement:

  • gives you permission to use our intellectual property (logo and materials) for one year following the training
  • gives you the opportunity to continue using our materials and logo after the first year by paying a small annual renewal fee
  • clarifies that you take full responsibility for running your business and your workshops in accordance with national, regional and local laws in the area in which you run your business
  • clarifies that you accept liability for your workshops and that you accept you are responsible for taking out full and proper insurance cover in connection with your provision of services.

If you join the payment plan option then the course will be delivered over four months. If your tuition fees are paid in one instalment all training materials are available to you immediately.

Are there any tests?

There are no tests as part of the training. When you have completed it, we will send you a quiz to complete which will help you demonstrate what you have learned. Once your quiz has been received you will be eligible for your Teacher Certificate and Teacher Logo. We may send you feedback on your quiz if we feel that any important points have been missed.

How does the online training work?

After you enrol you’ll receive a log in to our online classroom where you’ll access all of your training materials.

Here is how we ensure that you learn effectively and enjoyably online:

  • Multimedia. Each Module is provided as a written module and also an an audio class. This means its just like being in a classroom with us as we talk through each module in detail, adding in our personal experience and emphasising the key points.
  • Practical. There are lots of suggested activities throughout the course to put what you are learning into practice. We provide lots of examples and templates for all aspects of running your workshops and classes which you can complete to get your business up and running in no time. As one of our teacher Carol (UK) says, “So much information is provided, I haven’t felt daunted at all about setting out on a new path.  The most useful?  The blueprints.  I’ve had no experience of training others, so this has made the difference of whether I would do it or not.”
  • Quarterly live group coaching sessions with us. As part of the training we are providing live webinar training sessions so that you can ask any questions you many have and we can support your personally with your training.
  • Teacher Training Mastermind group (hosted on Facebook). Meet other teachers on the training, and be fully supported by us and them as you build your business. As one of our teachers Janine (NZ) says, “I love this group. You gorgeous women are amazing! I love that you share your knowledge and views and are so supportive. Thanks Gail & Gareth for the group and bringing use together and for being so helpful and supportive”.
Do I need lots of equipment and ingredients to get started?

No, the only equipment you will need is some basic kitchen equipment. Digital scales, a thermometer, heat proof bowls and jugs. Thats enough to get started. You can also start with a basic set of ingredients. £50-£100 ( US $70-$150) will buy you enough to get going. Remember that you’ll cover this cost after running your first class.
