History

The Australian Academy of Beauty and Spa Therapy has been dedicated to teaching the highest professional standards of Beauty Therapy for nearly 40 years. The Academy is fully government accredited, and is approved for Vet Student Loans. It is also accredited with City and Guilds London .

From humble beginnings in Baulkham Hills in 1980, the CEO Suzanne Campbell has been involved in the revolution of the beauty industry. From having her own course government accredited in 1996, to then being part of the consultation panel for the development of the first government training package in 1999, today works with Skills IQ to ensure beauty and laser training in Australia is world class.

The Academy was one of the first  beauty training institutions in NSW to be given VET FEE HELP in 2010 and today is proud to be able to offer Vet Student Loans for its Diploma courses.

The Academy has two university pathways. For students who have completed the Diploma of Beauty Therapy, articulation is possible with Victorian University into the degree program for Dermal Therapies.

For students who have completed the Diploma of Salon Management, students will gain credit towards a Bachelor of Business ( tourism) with Southern Cross University, where internships may available working in resorts all around the world as you complete your degree

Our classes are small to enable us to focus on personal growth of each and every student, equipping them with not only the highest standards of beauty skills, but also giving them the confidence, communication skills, finesse and grooming skills to work in a luxury service environment and for life in general.

 

HEAR WHAT THE INDUSTRY HAS TO SAY ABOUT OUR STUDENTS

I own a large beauty franchise in NSW. Students from the Australian academy of beauty Therapy are the best in the industry. I have employed many many students over the past 20 years and now will only employ graduates from this Academy.I believe their strong work experience program is what sets them apart. They are ready to work in a salon even before graduation, and I often employ students half way through their course. They have not only the highest level of skills, but are poised, and confident with the highest standards of grooming. I highly recommend The Australian Academy of Beauty Therapy if you are looking for the best in beauty education.

I just want to give some feedback regarding 2 of your students Jessica and Amelia. I have employed many girls over the past 20 years from many different training providers but I have never come across graduates such as these, Their professionalism, their grooming, their understanding of what is required in a salon environment is second to none  I am so impressed with the level of training these girls have received and want to pass on my congratulations.

 Laser Clinics Australia  have many employees that are graduates from The AUSTRALIAN ACADEMY OF BEAUTY THERAPY, we prioritise applicants from AABT as they are very well trained, well groomed, have good customer service skills, are professional and perform well from the first day of employment. This can be attributed to the training provided within the student clinic on campus at AABT.
