Question Hairdressing courses?

I think i'm probably going to do the hairdressing instead of Welfare work!

But, WHERE!!!!

Can anyone reccommend a hairdressing college in Queensland?

Start small and work your way up. Try the Birdsville sheep shearing station as a good starting off point

Hi

Try www.brishair.com.au. They have salon/college in Brisbane CBD and Gold Coast CBD. They include your 900 hours experience in the course and can work out a study plan for you, after the first ten weeks at 5 days at week, you can choose to do fast track or only do 3 or 4 days a week.
I have already arranged my programme, just waiting on money to start my application. Contact there is Mark Anderson, he's a really good guy and will work out a programme and payment plans for you in addition to the ones listed on the webpage. Send me a PM if you want me to send you the plans he sent me.
Cheers
Tracy

Thanks for that, i was looking at that one a little while ago. If you fast track the course though will it still count towards PR? As the way i read it is it has to be 2 yrs full time or 90 something weeks ? Surely if you fast track you won't complete the required amount of weeks to apply for PR?

Would be really grateful to know how th epayment plans work! I'll PM you, thanks.

Becky

p.s when are you starting your course?

Our house is on the market and we were planning on going may 09, however i notice that they intake in May too, so if we're sold, we may go in March time and spend a month or so settling kids in and finding a rental before starting my course.

I'm glad you thought so too. People who are serious about moving to Oz lookt on here for help and advice NOT stupid comments and remarks that might as well be from a 2 yr old

You are so right. Its hard enough trying to get accurate information without people who need personality transplants, trying to be witty at someone else's expense. I have a highly developed sense of humour as have most of the patient people here awaiting visa voyage. Good luck to all who sail on her

You could always try the TAFE colleges

Yeah, I have thought of that avenue but they don't unfortunately include the 900hrs work experience needed for TRA. I was originally going to go to the TAFE on the Sunshine coast but beause of this I decided to go to the Private college where I can also fast track through the course in about 16 mths.
