Courses for school students

TAFE SA has accredited courses especially for high school students.

These courses are part of the South Australian Government’s ‘Stackable VET’ program and provide students with highly valued vocational skills, prepare them for the workplace and allow them to try out different areas before committing to a qualification. ‘Stackable VET’ courses may also earn credit towards a student’s SACE.

Stackable VET programs are available for Year 10, Year 11 and Year 12 students and are generally delivered one day per week per week unless specified otherwise.


Hair and Beauty

TAFE SA's Hair and Beauty program delivers vocational education and training (VET) for Schools as part of our nationally recognised training package. It's available to students from Years 10 to 12 as part of their normal school curriculum.

The Hair and Beauty VET for Schools program helps students:

  • develop practical, industry-specific skills 
  • develop an understanding of the world of work 
  • work towards gaining 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.

Our short courses provide you with a taste of the hair and beauty industry. They give a good understanding of the scope and career options the industry can offer you.
Students can continue their studies onto Certificate II in hairdressing while still at school, or in the Certificate III in beauty, makeup or nail technology outside of school.

Our teaching practices include workshops, tutorials and demonstrations, online spaces, forums, electronic portfolios, online classes and face-to-face delivery, all designed to engage the student and assist with reaching their goals.

All of our courses are taught by highly qualified industry professionals supported by real salon experiences in our hairdressing salons and beauty clinics.
