Week 6 of TY student Abby’s work experience from Colaiste Bride Clondalkin – “Another busy day with teaching and learning methodologies”

Organising A Workshop

Today was a very busy day! First I had my chat with Derek. We talked about me organising a day for a Waverley Academy trainer to come to my school and give a talk to TY students about beauty care and careers in beauty. So we just talked about what topics exactly I think should be taught , how the trainer should teach them, and how the trainer will know we’ve actually learned something.

Teaching & Learning

This is called ‘learning and teaching methodologies’ and I’m actually excited to see how I’ll do with this task, as teaching is something I’ve been thinking about doing when I leave school, and I feel like this really links in with teaching.

Preparing Products

After that, I was put straight to work. Me and Joan went out to the stock room to bring in products for an eyelash course. Then I made up sixteen eyelash kits and did a stock take of all the eyelash products in case Joan needed to order anymore items in.

Computer Work

Lastly, I did some work in the computer. I had to make all the in-house certificates for spray tan courses and eyelash courses and then send them off to all the students that completed the courses. The day flies in when you’re working!
