Further Questions

Are you a caregiver for a child, relative, or friend? (Family commitments)

Because we are preparing you for the workforce, we have a strict attendance policy. If you are a caregiver for a child, relative or friend, you will need to ensure both their and your needs are met. Please explain what back-up plans you have in place to ensure you can attend class if your child is sick and cannot attend school (for example).

How much do you feel you know about the beauty industry?

We want to make sure that the students we select for enrolment have the best possibility to achieve and succeed in not only the programme but also the industry. It is very important for you to explain to us why you want to enrol and study in our programme if you don’t know a lot about our industry. We strongly encourage you to do research into the industry before applying or enrolling. (We’re not expecting you to be an expert though.)

Health and Safety

We gather this information to ensure your and your classmates’ health and safety are protected as best as it can be throughout your time studying with us. If there is a change in your status, please let us know as soon as possible.

You are expected to give and receive all treatments unless you have medical clearance from a licensed medical professional to exempt you. We must have that exemption in writing on file.

Questions about health and learning conditions, tattoos, piercings, medication, et cetera

We gather this information due to:

  • Health and learning conditions: Health conditions may be contraindications to some or all of our treatments so we need to ensure your health and safety is protected and you suffer no adverse reactions. Learning conditions may affect your learning, so we need to see how we can help you inside the classroom so you can achieve and succeed while studying with us. (Please note: We require written diagnoses for some health conditions and all learning conditions. If you have a learning condition, you may need an external specialist tutor to help you achieve and succeed.)
  • Tattoos: We have no issues with tattoos. We want to make sure that recent tattoos, or some tattoos with certain pigmentation, are not affected negatively by our treatments.
  • Facial and body piercings: You may need to remove some types of facial and body piercings during treatments. You will need to replace them with a plastic sleeper. This is to ensure the therapist giving you the treatment does not accidentally remove or damage the piercing. Some electrical currents can “tattoo” impure metals into the skin as well.
  • Regular, ongoing, and current medication: Medication can affect some products and treatments. We need to ensure your health and safety is protected and you suffer no adverse reactions.
  • Hospitalisation: On-going illnesses may interfere with your ability to achieve and succeed in the programme. Any treatment also needs to avoid recent scars from surgery.
  • Conditions affecting sensory systems; learning conditions; and behavioural and attention conditions: These may affect your learning, so we need to know how we can help you inside the classroom so you can achieve and succeed while studying with us. (See the notes in “Health and learning conditions” above.)
  • Charged with, received diversion from, or convicted of a serious crime: We will consider these on a case-by-case basis. Please disclose this to us so we can make an informed decision. Purposely misleading us may be a crime under the Crimes Act and its subsequent amendments. (Please note: You have the right to conceal any minor offence occurring over 7 years ago if unrepeated and as per the Criminal Records [Clean Slate] Act 2004 and its subsequent amendments, providing you meet all other conditions of the act.)

Explanation of your answers if you answered “Yes” to any question

Please explain why you answered “yes” to one or more of the questions in the area provided. If you need more room, please expand on your answer on another sheet of paper and attach that piece of paper to your application. You may need to supply a diagnosis or medical clearance from a qualified medical or other professional.
