How to enrol

Sam Allan

Have your experience acknowledged through Recognition of Prior Learning

The salon-based learning I received whilst completing my Diploma of Hairdressing gave me the confidence to open my own hairdressing salon the day after I completed the course. The flexible learning style offered not only allowed me to complete extra curricular activities, but also acknowledged my recognition of prior learning, which other institutions did not offer. After having such a positive experience throughout my course, I continue to send my apprentices to TAFE Queensland Gold Coast, to ensure they recieve the same positive experience and industry skills.
