Hair and Beauty Courses for School Students

At TAFE SA students can get a taste of the hair and beauty industry while they are studying Year 10, 11 or 12 through the vocational education and training (VET) for schools program.

The Hair and Beauty VET for Schools program helps students:

  • develop practical, industry-specific skills 
  • develop an understanding of the world of work 
  • gain a nationally recognised qualification.

VET study also counts towards the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) and is the perfect pathway into further Hair and Beauty study at TAFE SA, or it can prepare students for employment or gaining an apprenticeship or traineeship.


TAFE SA is proud to be part of the Sustainable Salons initiative and we have pledged to recycle 95 per cent of all our salon waste. As an organisation which is developing the hairdressers of tomorrow, it is important to us that we educate them not only on how to be great hairdressers, but also on how to be environmentally responsible ones.
