Let’s Teach Turning Course

We have designed and written the “Lets teach Turning” course to give turners who give tuition some assistance in teaching the basics of woodturning at training workshops, club events such as hands on evenings or the scout jamborees.

ON completion of the self paced course, AWGB members have the opportunity to attend an assessment day where their teaching abilities will be assessed and if successful they will be awarded the AWGB Approved Tutor badge. Completion of the course is a pre-requisite to attending the assessment day.

The course takes around 2.5 hours to complete and we expect people to do it in stages over a few days.

The course CD is designed for use on a Windows PC.

You can download the course here for free or purchase a copy of the CD for £16 including postage.
