To our much loved ASI community and beyond,
Whilst 2020 has shaped up to be a year for the history books, it has awakened us to think differently.
We have been regularly talking with our community about using this window to up-skill and be set up for success when we all exit this period. For ASI, it has meant approaching how we can continue to be there for our students as they depend on us in new ways: to stay learning as our in-person classrooms paused, to stay connected as we have stayed apart, to stay fuelled with inspiration to adapt, and most importantly to stay healthy and look out for one another.
In-person Training From August
We are excited to be taking a step forwards in re-opening enrolments for in-person training from August onwards, where we will be welcoming students back into our classrooms in Melbourne (HQ), Sydney and Perth. Our students refer to our in-person training as a highlight – where you can be further immersed in a space of creativity and collaboration – so we know this will be a welcomed announcement.
Due to Government required capacity restrictions, there are limited places available for our in-person training. Our Student Advisors are taking enrolment interviews for Certificate, Advanced and Masters intakes, and as the demand suggests, they will fill up fast.
Everyone’s styling journey starts with our most popular course, the Certificate of Fashion Styling which includes 5 days of intensive training, plus 6 months online exercises. In March, we launched this course fully online and its success has proven it will become a permanent offering, with online intakes running in conjunction with in-person intakes. You can check out these dates below.
Commitment To Health & Safety
Our community’s health and wellbeing remain our top priority. This commitment means we will have increased safety measures in place to ensure your support and comfort throughout in-person training.
New Industry Opportunities
What has become apparent over the past months is the varied and new opportunities that are opening up in the world of styling. Our free Virtual Open Day on June 24th will explore the industry landscape and how you can embrace it.
- Personal Stylist- People looking for direction as they become more discerning in their purchases.
- Virtual Stylist- The world is embracing technology, from virtual styling to online deliveries.
- In-store Stylist- Retailers are seeking new, integrated approaches to building valuable customer traffic.
- Personal Shopper- People are turning to trained experts for style advice and assistance.
These inspiring opportunities are waiting for you, and we are ready to help get you there. We can’t wait to welcome you into our in-person or online classrooms – whichever you choose!
We want to thank you all for your continued support during this period. To our students, graduates and Alumni, your determination and positivity continue to inspire us every day.
Stay healthy and see you soon!
The ASI Team.
