i am a beauty therapist and this is a reflective journal that is about my time at work placement at panache training beauty academy, i have been working there since October 2014 since i have been studying for my PGCE lifelong learning in the uk. this is a refection of my teaching experience. i was teaching young adult student age range from 16-19 these students have got a variety if behaviour problem and mental issue they do not listen and are always misbehaving so it has been a challenge teaching them the skills i have as a beauty therapist. for point 1 i will upload some feedback that i have got from my observation to help you have an idea of how i should improve my teaching to help the learners towards challenging targets. in maths english and ICT we help students to make beauty leaflet for example aftercare leaflets after a treatment. what is a contraindication leaflet i did a competition on what is a contraindication and they had to describe it the winner got a eyeshadow pallett. we help student use many skills with ICT, english and maths when teaching beauty therapy. and for the 5th point i will upload my creativity and innovation project so you have an idea of what i did for that topic.
in addressing these themes, you need to demonstrate the use of sustained and rigorous reflection to evaluate and improve your own teaching and inclusive practice.you also need to show that you have engaged with other specialist in the same subject area to improve knowledge and skills. should show reflection on the engagement with an employer.
just make this part up as i had a mentor called Clare who i worked closely with so you can say she helped me with improving with my skills.
