Corrol Wood is currently studying a Diploma of Beauty Therapy and a Diploma of Screen and Media (Specialist Make-up) in Perth. Corrol is returning to study in her forties but is enjoying both courses. She was happy to share her story with us and to explain why she’s enjoying the course.

Here at TrainSmart Australia, personal recommendations and praise speak volumes about the high level of training we offer.

“I am one of the more mature students here at TrainSmart Australia. For many years I worked in the community, I used to be the co-ordinator for a kid’s after-school group and then I worked for a government organisation helping those on a low income, but the job wasn’t very stable and there were always concerns that funding would be withdrawn.

I have always enjoyed make-up and speaking to Matt one of the career counsellors here, I soon realised that you’re never too old to learn a new subject. I am studying both the Diploma of Beauty Therapy and the Diploma of Screen and Media, so I am learning so much and I love it.

What I really enjoy is how make-up can make people feel so good. It gives them the ‘wow factor’ a boost which gives me a lot of satisfaction.

Priscilla is one of my trainers and is extremely knowledgeable.

Long term I’d like to have my own salon. My family has been very supportive of my desire to retrain in later life. My 26-year-old daughter has given me a spray tanning unit and my sister has given me a waxing kit, so there’s no stopping me now.”
