With many educational facilities opening of recent claiming to ‘train the highest quality of beauty therapist’, it’s hard to stand out from the crowd.
When we first discovered the Australian Capital Training Institute, also known as ACTI, we were sceptical at first wondering how this educational start up would differ from others, that is, until we spoke with Director Elise Birchall who shares with us their ‘Bold Vision’.
Combined industry experience of both Elise and Borka Buseska,CEO of ACTI, see multiple businesses, dermal qualifications and plastic surgery careers turn their attention to creating practical courses for budding beauty therapists, as well as qualified therapists looking to enhance their industry skills.ACTI identifies the gap between the graduated beauty therapist and the able performing therapist ready to hit the ground running, which so many employees are desperate for. Rather than utilising expenses to continually train graduates who are incapable of communicating at a professional level with the client or have never had nor treated with chemical peels, ACTI aims to provide career ready graduates who are taught by industry experienced educators.
“There’s a skills gap between what you learn at beauty school and what is required of you in a clinical environment”
ACTI’s ‘bold vision’ tag line is imparted on the students to be bold about their future, while holding themselves accountable through keeping their training programs to be up to date with industry and “pushing the boundaries”of educational predecessors that came before them. Award winning trainers, small classroom sizes, industry leading technology and inspiring educators all contribute to their bold vision and execution in the classroom.
“Trying to make a change in the beauty industry is our bold vision”
Teaming up with the likes of Gay Wardle, skin expert, and Julie Piantadosi, clinic growth specialist, sees ACTI stay in touch with industry standards as well as allowing students to experience multiple educators and industry mentors. Short courses include making your business profitable, becoming Disneyland in terms of providing the client experience and Advanced consultations, which means the courses are open to all involved in the beauty industry, not just limited to current students.
The Australian Capital Institute is set to make waves in Canberra, which we are sure will affect the eb and flow of its surrounding states of New South Wales and Victoria. Career ready, passionate, intelligent gradates with a bold vision for their future career in the beauty industry – sounds like a divine educational institute to us!
