COVID-19 Update: 6 May 2020

Be Kind: Unite Against COVID-19
This story is no longer valid.
We are still accepting applications for the July 2020 intakes of the New Zealand Certificate in Nail Technology and the New Zealand Certificate and Diploma in Beauty Therapy programmes. Emailing your applications to us is the best option to ensure a speedy response.

New Zealand has moved to Alert Level 3 as of 11:59 PM on Monday, 27 April 2020.

While we have the ability to offer limited face-to-face training under Level 3, we have decided that we will remain offering distance and online learning to our students for now.

The New Zealand Government will issue further guidelines on what Alert Level 2 will entail tomorrow (Thursday, 7 May 2020).

They will also inform us if we will be moving from Alert Level 3 to a higher or lower alert level, or remaining at Alert Level 3, on Monday, 11 May 2020.

If the Government decides to move to Alert Level 2, we will be issuing further guidelines and instructions to our team members, students, and the general public. These will be in-line with Government advice.

While we believe learning will resume on-campus at Alert Level 2, the way we will interact may change in the interim to ensure health and safety of all are protected as best as we can manage it.

Some activities, such as clinic days, may not resume until Alert Level 1.

Even though we are in Alert Level 3, and may be moving to Alert Level 2 soon, it is important that you and everyone you know remains safe and vigilant. Stay within your bubble, stay home whenever you possibly can (no unnecessary trips), keep washing your hands with soap for 20+ seconds (and drying them well), be kind, and together we can beat this virus.

As always, please contact us if you have any questions or need further guidance. Stay safe!

Education Team welcomes new beauty therapy and nail technology students in the lecture room on 3 February 2020

Welcome to our new students! Glad to have you here studying with us. Here are our lovely beauty tutor team at orientation with our new students.

Our new programme approvals for the 2020 academic year have been with the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) since July 2019.

Yesterday, NZQA formally approved our combined New Zealand Certificate and Diploma in Beauty Therapy programme. We are also accredited to teach it.

All new students from 2020 will be offered the combined New Zealand Certificate and Diploma in Beauty Therapy programme only for studying beauty therapy. This means all students will gain both the certificate and diploma in 18 months (instead of the normal 2 years).

This morning, we submitted an application to the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) for funding approval for the New Zealand Diploma in Beauty Therapy programme. We already have made our 2020 funding plans available to TEC.

We will keep you up-to-date on the progress we make via our Web site.
