Georgia - Diploma of Beauty Therapy (SHB50121)

"My experience at Bendigo TAFE was great because I felt that I was continuously supported by my teachers. The class sizes were small, which meant that I was able to receive 1:1 attention and ask lots of questions and not feel like my questions were being overlooked. My life has changed completely for the better. I was previously studying a course that I wasn't enjoying and felt completely burnt out by.


Taking the leap and completing my a beauty course was honestly the best thing I could have done! I am now feeling happy and more confident within myself and realising what I can achieve. Beauty feels like it is the correct industry for me to be in. I am currently working at a beautiful salon with fantastic people and this opportunity would not have been offered to me if it weren't for Bendigo TAFE. I am loving my job and not feeling stressed, anxious and dreading going to work each day.


It is honestly hard to put into words how much this course has changed my life but it has been a fantastic journey and I couldn't recommend Bendigo TAFE enough!"
