Western Sydney TAFE has trained over 1900 hair and beauty graduates over the last 3 years. With more growth forecasted for the industry in NSW, employment within beauty is predicted to grow by 3.6% annually between 2015 and 2016.
“TAFE WSI is a strong supporter of the rapidly growing hair and beauty industry, therefore we are delighted to be a part of this growth with the launch of our AcadeMY,” said Foonghar Chong, director of education at TAFE.
“The AcadeMY will collaborate closely with industry experts in delivering first-class vocational training to help students gain employment or establish their own business within the field,” he added.
To celebrate the launch, AcadeMY is running a Facebook competition. Students are invited to upload picture of their work (hair and beauty) on to the Facebook page to go into the draw to win a master-class in hair, makeup, eyelashes or eyebrows.
