2021 is the best year to begin a career in beauty at ACTI

There has never been a better time to study a Beauty Diploma at the Australian Capital Training Institute (ACTI), and the enrolment deadline of 18 January is approaching fast!

This year, ACTI tuition fees are heavily subsidised thanks to generous government support and Canberra’s leading beauty school has employers waiting to welcome you into the workforce.

You can even start work while you’re studying by pairing a Beauty Diploma with an apprenticeship!

ACTI maintains strong ties to the industry and offers an exclusive Meet and Greet event with potential employers for students beginning a Beauty Diploma on 2 February.
