At Demi International, we believe that a career in beauty is a vocation. Regardless of your age, background, and qualifications, commitment and a drive to succeed are essential to succeeding as a beauty therapist. For some people, this calling and willingness to commit to a career in beauty come earlier in life than for others.
If you’re in the final years of high school, you may be eligible to complete a beauty therapy course at Demi International while you finish your studies. Under the new Queensland high school curriculum, completing a VET course can help you graduate with your High School Certificate (QCE) and an industry-recognised qualification in beauty – putting you on the fast-track to a rewarding beauty career. Read on to discover how you could become a makeup artist or beauty therapist as you study.
