If your New Year’s resolution is likely to be along the lines of “I want to work in the beauty industry, like, right now” then you might want to consider enrolling in a TAFE course.
As 2015 comes to a close, this is the moment for beauty-enthusiasts to think about getting their qualifications in 2016.
“Getting the right qualification and choosing colleagues who have a good grounding in technique and management is crucial to the success of your beauty business,” says Rebecca Santos, senior communications officer at TAFE NSW.
TAFE NSW offers a variety of courses in beauty, from certificate through to diploma level, and, well, it’s time to get your skates on because it’s enrolling for semester one 2016 now and throughout January.
“It’s the right time to get qualified, as the health and beauty in Australia is worth over $4 billion each year and is constantly changing to meet new trends and developments,” says Santos. “The industry currently employs over 81,000 people and is still growing, with great opportunities for beauty therapists to work casual, part-time or full-time.”
TAFE NSW has beauty courses such as Basic Hair and Beauty, Beauty Therapy and Beauty Services, which are being held in 2016 right around NSW (think Dubbo, Newcastle, Mount Druitt and the Blue Mountains). NSW locals keen to enrol, should head to www.tafensw.edu.au
