STUDENT TEACHING COURSE OUTLINE
The Student Teaching curriculum consists of 500 hours as required by the New Jersey State Board of Cosmetology & Hairstyling. Our course encompasses and provides hands-on trainings in all aspects of educator-training.
The Artistic Academy of Hair Design strives to provide quality education that prepares students to pass the state board examination, become properly licensed and perform duties required by the license and to secure employment at entry level. In a competitive and fast-growing industry, well qualified and diversified professionals skilled in all aspects of skin care are increasingly in demand.
INSTRUCTIONAL TECHNIQUES AND METHODS
The Student Teaching education is provided through structured and sequential learning objectives in preparation for the State Board Exam. During the 500 hour program, students will engage in observations, practice teaching, and instruction in lesson planning and teaching methodology.
STUDENT TEACHING PROGRAM TESTING AND GRADING PROCEDURES
Written and practical exams and clinical practical work are all graded on a 0-100% basis. In order to maintain a satisfactory level of achievement at The Artistic Academy of Hair Design, a student must maintain a 75% or C average as a minimum passing standard set forth on the State Board Exam. Practical exams have several components assessed and cumulative grade for each practical must meet a minimum of 75% to be deemed as passing. Students may re-take a failed exam one time for a higher score. The average of the two exam scores will be the standing score for that exam. All assessments are expected to be taken as scheduled. If a student is absent during initial exam, it is the student’s responsibility to schedule a date to complete the exam within one week of the original date. Failure to take the exam within one week of the original date will result in a “0.”
|Grading Scale:||A = 95%-100%||B = 85%-94%||C = 75-84%||Failing = Below 75%|
