What does being a Nail Educator require?
The focus of an Nail Educator is working with and through others, building and maintaining relationships, and working closely and accurately within the training guidelines. The Educator need to be an effective communicator, someone who is able to stimulate and motivate students while being aware of and responsive to their needs and concerns. There will be many different people to meet and work with. The Educator must be friendly and genuinely interested in the business, agenda, and needs of others, including the College, its team, its students and guests. A persuasive, teaching style of communication is required to communicate the College’s policies, programs, and systems. A faster-than average pace will be the norm. Detail work is a major focus of the role, and those details need to be handled quickly, correctly, and efficiently. As an Educator, the focus is on relationships with others; correct handling of details dealing with others is necessary to maintain and grow relationships. The role will require managing and guiding students, therefore following up carefully, closely, and cheerfully is required to ensure both correct work and maintenance of the relationships. If corrections need to be made, it must be done in a constructive, supportive manner. Time is usually a factor, the responsibilities must be done on time, as well as correctly. In general, this is a position where guidelines, structure, and established policies must be followed fairly closely, while working with and for others.
