I heard about SCA from a make-up artist ages ago and had have driven past the Academy whenever I went to Shellharbour. I completed my SHB30315 Certificate III in Nail Technology to elevate my skills as I am a qualified make-up artists with a decade of experience and specialise in brow waxing. I am currently an SBM for Benefit Cosmetics for the past 5 years. My goals are to open my own home studio. My big achievement during my study was completing the course successfully while doing it all via zoom due to lockdown. I enjoyed everything in my course, although it was a shame it wasn’t in person I still felt I was able to learn and pick up the skills required.
Thanks to my incredible teachers I was fortunate to be offered jobs just 6 months into my year Diploma. This is evident of the high standard in education that SCA has to offer. I was in shock how quickly I developed my skills and knowledge in all aspects of beauty. We were always pushed out of our comfort zones, supported and received endless amounts of training from experts in the industry both at the College and out of the College. I always felt so comfortable to learn and grow at SCA, the environment is so positive and professional. I walked away from SCA after graduating with my Diploma in Beauty Therapy with a Job at SkinMedix, a Skin and Laser clinic. I wouldn’t have achieved my goal without my amazing Educators and director Tina, who was so hands on and made every student feel so loved and comfortable. My biggest achievement was also receiving the High Achiever in Overall Academics award. This wouldn’t have been possible without all my outstanding teachers who shaped and built my knowledge throughout the course. I could not recommend the SCA family enough!
I studied my Diploma of Beauty Therapy at SCA Hair and Beauty Academy in 2016 and found it to be very professional. All the Educators were knowledgeable, friendly and approachable and I found it to be extremely enjoyable. I learnt all aspects of Beauty Therapy from makeup, nails, skin, massage and many other subjects, and this directly led me to obtaining permanent employment in this field. I would recommend SCA to anybody who is looking at studying in this industry.
I studied at SCA as it had all the facilities I needed to study my Diploma of Beauty Therapy. Which were amazing might I add! I enjoyed getting to see the lovely teachers and friends that I made there everyday. I also loved learning new things. My experience at SCA was overall amazing and I would recommend the Academy to anyone in a heartbeat.
I have studied at SCA hair and beauty academy for both the Diploma in Beauty therapy and the Diploma in Hair and Makeup artistry. The teachers are so supportive, kind and knowledgeable. Our classes became like a little family and it has been sad to say bye. The administration staff go above and beyond to support the students through any adversities that they may face. I know from my experience they were always kind and did anything that they could to help. Tina (the director/principle) is a great mentor and is very passionate about her business. Tina recommended myself and other students for jobs in the industry. Tina offers so many opportunities to her students and often offers side courses that add to your experiences and knowledge. Each year the academy gets better and better and I really couldn’t recommend SCA more. One thing about the Beauty industry is, it works as a big circle and trends go out and come back. SCA constantly keeps up with the industry and the latest trends, but at the same time continues to teach us the older ways. This has been helpful because every salon is different. By the end of the year I obtained a wide range of knowledge that is useful to the industry.
SCA offered a supportive and welcoming environment for everyone and made you feel comfortable walking into the academy each day knowing the Educators and other staff are there to help. Everyone is so nice and willing to help in any way they can. You meet some awesome people that end up being your best friends. I really enjoyed my experience with SCA. I would not have wanted it any other way. I would recommend SCA. There are so many opportunities you can take and the support through those decisions are great. I am very happy I studied at SCA.
I originally chose SCA in 2015 to complete my Certificate III in Hairdressing to start my career path into the industry. Being only 15 and the youngest student Tina has taken into the Academy, it was quite daunting. However, I was made to feel very comfortable after our first interview. I completed my Certificate III in Hairdressing though SCA and am now currently completing my Diploma in Beauty Therapy. I am currently working in the Hairdressing industry and have been since December of 2015. After about 5 months of studying with SCA full time, I was offered an apprenticeship through Chelsea Hairdressing. I continued going to SCA as an apprentice for all of 2016. My initial studies at SCA got me my position as an apprentice as I was more familiar in the industry which made me more hireable. Being awarded Apprentice of the year and being offered my apprenticeship was my biggest achievement at SCA. The most enjoyable part of the course was the teachers. They became mentors and really took me under their wing to make sure I excelled to my full potential.
The reason I chose SCA was location and Smart & Skilled Option for Students. I completed my Certificate III in Hairdressing. My qualification got me a position as a hairdresser at a salon in Wollongong, I’m very pleased. Being able to build a loyal client base before graduating who continue to support me were some of my biggest achievements at SCA. I enjoyed my cutting classes with Tania, she helped me gain a lot of confidence while learning and had a lot of patience with me. Her positive attitude and constructive feedback inspired me to keep improving my skills and to never stop learning.
