Do I have to attend for each timetabled day on campus?
Yes. Your teacher’s role is to prepare you for working in a beauty salon, hairdressing salon, spa or to run your own beauty business.

Each day on campus is valuable time to learn new techniques, practice and participate in the simulated salon environment. Therefore it is very important to attend each day on your timetable. Teachers will endeavor to schedule catch up classes but this is done on a case by case basis and not guaranteed to be available.
