WHAT SOME OF OUR STUDENTS HAVE TO SAY…

guku_treatment_high_1

“Classes are conducted in an established spa so the content we learn has an immediate, real world relevance. I often forget I am studying a dual diploma because the lessons don’t feel like work, it’s not a chore to dedicate myself to something so enjoyable and an environment so welcoming.”

Rhiannon Ensor – Double Diplomas of Beauty and Management (Spa and Wellness)

Duprice

“I found that it was hard to secure a job as most businesses want diploma qualifications and as I was gaining more responsibilities in my workplaces over the years since gaining my Certificate III in Beauty Therapy, I felt this was the best thing I could do to boost my career by both obtaining confidence in management concepts and the pieces of paper to prove what I am capable of bringing to a business.”

Duprice – Double Diplomas of Beauty and Management (Spa and Wellness)

Haruka1

Haruka Hirooka began her journey as a beauty therapist over 9 years ago and has worked her way into supervisory and training positions during that time. “Studying Spa Management with Aurora Spa’s flexible learning was perfect. It allowed me and my fellow students to get the qualification we really wanted while continuing to work our current jobs.”

Haruka Hirooka – Diploma of Management (Spa and Wellness)

Bliss_Pedi_Chair

Throughout my time during the course I was encouraged to set and achieve personal goals, as well as receiving mentoring in areas I was needing extra support in. The level of professionalism and subject content helped me to understand more clearly what is operationally required to Manage a Spa successfully in the future, all delivered in a way for us students to understand. Friendships were formed, and industry knowledge gained by guest speakers, excursions and work placement within a leading operational Spa, that is incredibly invaluable.”

Jenny McCann – Diploma of Management (Spa and Wellness)
