De­ci­sion on path­way

STU­DENTS should keep their fu­ture study and work goals in mind when choos­ing be­tween study­ing for an as­so­ciate de­gree or ad­vanced di­ploma, a report ad­vises.

The Na­tional Cen­tre for Vocational Ed­u­ca­tion Re­search report ex­am­ines the cost of the qual­i­fi­ca­tions and fu­ture ed­u­ca­tion path­ways. Both qual­i­fi­ca­tions take two years of study.

It says stu­dents who want im­me­di­ate en­try to the labour mar­ket af­ter a shorter course of study may want to com­plete the ad­vanced di­ploma as it is the cheaper op­tion.

An as­so­ciate de­gree is bet­ter for stu­dents who want to go on to study a ter­tiary de­gree be­cause it will pro­vide more credit to­wards en­try into the higher ed­u­ca­tion course.

Clip Joint makes the cut

AN ADE­LAIDE-based hair­dress­ing, make-up and fash­ion academy is the first in Aus­tralia to part­ner with the renowned Sas­soon Academy in Los An­ge­les to pro­vide state-of-the-art train­ing for stu­dents.

Clip Joint Ed­u­ca­tion, also a fi­nal­ist in the 2012 South Aus­tralian Train­ing Awards, is the first Sas­soon Academy School Con­nec­tion school named out­side of the US.

‘‘ Sas­soon brings that ‘ fash­ion’ edge to cut­ting and colour tech­niques that makes such a dif­fer­ence when ap­ply­ing for work in the hair­dress­ing in­dus­try,’’ a spokes­woman says.

Clip Joint pro­vides free train­ing as a Skills For All provider. Call 8223 5600 for more in­for­ma­tion about cour­ses and ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties.
