Tutor information

FHT is the professional association of choice for student therapists. Established in 1962, we promote high standards in education by supporting tutors in their teaching to ensure students are gaining their qualifications and acquiring the information they need for their future careers. Now tutors and students are accustomed to blended learning, FHT has created a range of online resources ideal for student therapists starting, or progressing, through their qualification. The resources have been created exclusively with students in mind and are all free so read on to find out what is available to you and your students.

Virtual Ambassador Programme

It is FHT's aim to promote high standards in education and ensure student therapists have the support and information they need to confidently excel on their journey to qualification and beyond. To do this, FHT's virtual ambassador programme sees a specially appointment FHT representative present virtually to your students. The session with one of our ambassadors provides your students with valuable information about our professional assoication, therapy insurance, professional practice and much more.

If you would like support in informing your students about who FHT is and what we can do to support them as professionals, please get in touch using this form.

Essential Therapist Guide

As your students progress through their qualification, it is likely they will have many questions regarding insurance, career next steps and professional association membership. FHT's Essential Therapist Guide, which has been written exclusively for students, is an ideal aid to answer those common queries.

It is full of engaging articles, exciting features, advice from industry leaders and useful information for students to take forward in their therapy career. There is also a tear out goal setting template to assist your students in creating the perfect action plan to achieve their aspirations and easy to follow career pathways for the complementary, beauty and sports industries.

Ambassador video and Q&A

FHT's Ambassadors are a group of trained and experienced therapists who are appointed to raise awareness regionally with students on important subjects such as therapy insurance, professional practice and the support the FHT has to offer through every step of their therapy career. Traditionally, our Ambassadors would visit students in your classroom but in light of new restrictions, FHT Ambassador Alison Brown has created a short video highlighting her top tips for students.

In her video, Alison describes how the FHT can help, support and insure your students through their studies. The video covers who the FHT is and the key benefits of our student membership, which can also help with business modules they are completing. To conclude this activity, you can quiz your students about what they have learned with the accompanying question and answer sheets that have been specially created by the FHT.

FHT Masterclass

FHT has recently collaborated with two fantastic speakers to create a two part series of videos to aide your students on their business modules. The masterclasses will be especially helpful to students who are thinking of setting up their own business and becoming a self-employed therapist. The videos available are:

Nail your ideal client
Therapist, Nikki Collinson-Phenix, has been in practice for over 20 years and in her masterclass she details how to create a therapy business built on strong foundations so more clients can be served and retained while earning a good income and making a bigger impact in the world. 

Power of a blog
Lisa Slater from Make Your Copy Count describes how to use a blog to establish expertise and credibility, build trust, raise awareness, engage a bigger audience and generate more website traffic - all of which will lead to an increase in enquiries and sales.
