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, or beauty polo shirt from the CQU Bookshop.

Black full-length or 3/4 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. 

Clean tidy nails and appropriate makeup.

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 endeavor 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.
