Industry leader endota has just announced the launch of endota Wellness College, which will see the opening of two brand new education campuses in Canberra and Melbourne in 2018.
Melanie Gleeson, endota Founder says of the move “As a brand which has paved the way for wellbeing to be considered a priority, we are extremely excited to announce the launch of our endota Wellness College.”
A Registered Training Organisation (RTO 88123) the college offers nationally recognised training in Beauty, Makeup, Massage and Business. Immersive and flexible study options combine practical in-spa experience with classroom-based skill development.
“The opening is a logical step to give students and future caregivers and nurturers, the confidence and practical skills in a field which is becoming increasingly valuable, particularly as the wellbeing, health and beauty landscapes evolve,” says Melanie.
As healthcare and wellness industries continue to be amongst the fastest growing industries globally, jobs in these fields are increasingly sought after. Some speculate the growth is attributed to an increase in consumers adopting lifestyles that promote wellbeing, therefore increasing the demand wellness services and products.
To address this, endota takes a more holistic approach to education than most Beauty Therapy colleges, also teaching students how to limit stress, sleep well, and foster better physical, emotional and spiritual wellness.
“We wanted to create a college which provides graduating students with options which will benefit their future careers, equip them with skills which have a competitive advantage and offer an element of self-care and consciousness in their expertise,” says Melanie.
endota spa currently boasts over 100 spas across Australia, with their network still expanding. Completing studies at one of endota’s Wellness Colleges will give students the opportunity to work at endota spas nationally, with the aim to fill as many job vacancies as possible, within the network, with graduating students.
The college is now accepting enrolments in its SHB50115 Diploma of Beauty Therapy and SHB40115 Certificate IV in Beauty Therapy programs. There are part-time and full-time places available, with two intakes per year. endota Wellness College is an approved provider of VET Student Loans.
Scholarships are also available for students that have achieved academic, sporting or creative excellence, as well as those who have experienced exceptional circumstances pertaining to emotional hardship.
The ACT campus, based in Mitchell, is now open, and the Victorian campus in Docklands will open in July this year.
