Cutting Edge Facility Opened at Shepparton Campus

GOTAFE have opened a brand new, fully equipped hair and beauty salon at their Shepparton Campus.

GOTAFE Hairdressing and Beauty Commercial Manager Kate Storer said the new salon will allow them to expand programs and cater for their ever growing client base.

“We were bursting at the seams,” Ms Storer said, “Our new salon has been purpose built for 20 students and fitted with the latest equipment and products. It’s light and bright, it’s just a place you want to spend time in, which is fantastic for our students.”

“Hairdressing and beauty skills are in high demand right now. This fantastic space provides us with the opportunity to expand programs into specialist make-up areas and Barbering, which are very much on trend.”

The new salon compliments the onsite day spa and existing salons, providing students with real life experience working with paying clients in facilities that reflect the latest in industry trends.

“We have introduced portable fume extraction systems into the new salon. The state of the art units remove the potentially harmful fumes from treatments such as chemical straightening and perming for example. This is an investment by GOTAFE in the workplace safety of our students, staff and clients and demonstrates that we are at the forefront of innovation in the industry.”

“We aim to provide our students with the skills industry demand. Our highly qualified instructors supervise as students take bookings, consult with clients, perform a wide range of salon treatments, process payments and sell retail products. – the whole process.”

Throughout Semester Two, GOTAFE, in partnership with Eleven Australia, are offering the chance to win an Eleven Australia prize pack. All you need to do is book a hair or beauty treatment at either Shepparton, Wangaratta or Seymour GOTAFE Salons to enter.
