YOUR TRAINING JOURNEY

We believe that education is not just learning; it’s a journey, from deciding to start your course right through to certification.

We understand the obstacles that sometimes need to be overcome for you to start on this journey.

Both students and facilitators at Irish educational facilities and the Advanced Institute of Nail Technology (AINT) are becoming increasingly varied in their experiences and backgrounds, reflecting the diversity witnessed in our broader society.

When our tutors attempt to create safe, inclusive classrooms, they consider
multiple factors, including their own classroom behaviour, their knowledge of students’ backgrounds and skills, the syllabus, course content, and class preparation.
It is our job to create a safe, happy environment for you to learn.

Your online class will be small so that you have enough one on one time with your assigned tutor. Your course notes can be emailed or posted with your kit before starting.

We use social media to communicate with you. Using a private Facebook group page, your tutor will upload the class diary. This is a recap of everything you do in the session and what to expect for your next session. Here we share pictures, ideas, and you can chat with the other students in your class.
