Instructor Training

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 other events.

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 Lets Teach Turning Install Package for free.

Note: The file is 630MB so downloading the file may take a while! The course is copyright AWGB.

After downloading the file, run it to install the course software and content.

Non Windows PC users can use the course by launching the player file on the CD in their web browser or by running the course from the website by using this link

The course requires flash player in order to run.

Instructor Assessment

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 and a certificate. Completion of the course is a pre-requisite to attending the assessment day.

The details of the assessment days will be added here when they are available.
