FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:


What is the BKSB?

The Basic Knowledge and Skills Builder is an online pre-enrolment assessment to match the qualification level in which you will achieve the best chance of success.  Diploma students must receive a level four in both literacy and numeracy to be eligible to access Vet Student Loan. 


Can I resit the BKSB?

You can resit the BKSB two weeks after your first sitting. Meanwhile there is an online workbook to work through before you are able to resit. 


Will I get help with literacy and numeracy skills?

Contact our Student Success Team on 13 27 86 who will refer you to the literacy and numeracy support team. 


When can I have a look at my unit on Moodle?

You can access the units on Moodle approximately two weeks prior to the commencement date of each unit.


How do I log into Moodle?

User name: 1023456 (your student number)

Password: Default password is found in your welcome email. 


What do I wear to class?

Whilst on-campus, students are required to adhere to the following uniform requirements:   


Black tunic available at the beauty wholesalers, uniform shops or online.

Black full-length or 3/4 length work pants (not leggings or jeans).

Black enclosed shoes. Choose black joggers or black support shoes. Do not wear ballet flats or heels. 

Tidy hair with long hair secured in a plait, braid or bun. 

Clean, tidy nails and appropriate makeup. 

Minimal jewellery, no midriffs. 


A CQUni apron will be available to wear in the simulated salon during each practical activity.  


Due to Workplace Health and Safety guidelines, you will not be able to participate in practical activities if your uniform is not satisfactory. 


What are the times I have to be in class?

8.45am to 3.30/4pm. 

If you are unable to attend, have to leave early or arrive late, please phone or email your teacher ahead of time, as quite often a student clinic will be operating and you will have clients booked for the day. 


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.  Therefore you will need to attend for the full day on each campus so that you can observe, practice and be assessed in the many practical skills of your beauty course.


Can I catch up on missed days?

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 endeavour to schedule catch up classes but this is done on a case by case basis and not guaranteed to be available. 


Do I have to find my own clients?

Your training salon has a client base however students may need to source their own clients from time to time. It is a good idea to network with your family and friends who can become your clients in our busy training salons.
 

It is each student’s responsibility to ensure that a model is obtained and booked into the appointment book for all Practical Assessments. Students must be prepared to provide treatments to clients.


What kind of assessments will I have to do?

Each unit will has several practical assessments and a written assessment. A timetable is provided that identifies when each assessment is due. 


Anything else I need to know?
