Day classes are held three days a week from 9am – 4.30pm. Once you start clinic, hours are 9am – 5pm. You may choose Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday; Wednesday, Thursday, Friday or Thursday, Friday, Saturday. When you progress into clinic, your days will be the same as your class days were. Course is completed within 12 months.
Additional hours are required for home study, research and underpinning knowledge assessment. These hours will vary according to students requirements.
The first 6 months are spent in the classroom environment, completing all theory and classroom practical requirements of the course. Electives are covered during this period. Students are also prepared for their clinic practical by being able to bring family and friends to certain practical workshop days.
At the end of 6 months, the same 3 days are spent in our own professional Day Spa for a further 6 months to ensure what you have learnt in the classroom is applied to industry standards in the real work environment (structured workplace learning).
During this time several units pertaining to on-the-job skills, e.g. communicate with customers, are delivered and a formal lesson is held each day to revise other units and their performance at workplace level.
NOTE: Structured workplace learning is not paid and is part of a student’s training requirements. Students are permitted to obtain work experience in other salons but only in addition to The Academy clinic requirements. 400 hours of clinic time at the The Academy, must be completed before graduation.
