If you want to teach children (those under 18) then you must have a recognized teaching qualification such as a BEd gained from university or a teaching college.  However, to teach adults, the requirements will vary depending on the college or organization you want to work in.

1. If you want to teach children then you must get a nationally recognized teaching qualification.  Look at government websites for advice about what is required to become a school teacher.

2. If you want to teach adults, you may be able to apply directly for college jobs based on your NVQ and your experience.  Start looking at education job sites as well general job advertising sites to see what sort of qualifications and experience are required.

3. Consider getting some sort of teacher training as many colleges and teaching establishments require staff to have a formal teaching qualification in addition to being qualified in their particular subject.  Adult teaching qualifications can vary but have a look at the City and Guilds website as a starting point.

4. Try to get voluntary experience teaching beauty skills by offering to help out at local companies or asking your current employer if you can share your skills with your colleagues.  Lots of teaching jobs require you to have some teaching experience and voluntary experience will often be considered.

5. Contact local colleges by phone, email or in person to ask advice about becoming a teacher, particularly if they run beauty therapy courses.  Ask if they have any vacancies or if you can volunteer to help out on any of their courses to start with.

You can often teach beauty therapy with NVQ level 3. You're supposed to have a City & Guilds teaching qualification as well, but some colleges will let you work towards that on the job. If you click on this job advertisement you can get an idea of the type of qualifications needed.

A good idea is probably to contact your local FE college or the college where you did your training. If they can't help, your local Adult Education centre is another possibility. Good luck.
