Thinking education and where to deliver it from? Jacque Clayton managing director of GrayClay medical aesthetics education can think of no better place than the Gold Coast.
After securing the exclusive license to deliver the Australasian Academy of Cosmetic Dermal Science (AACDS) curriculum there was no debate as to where the first college should be placed. “The Gold Coast offers so much for students. It is a city of learning and the facilities available to students reflect this. The Gold Coast lifestyle creates a wonderful study/life balance for a student which is so important these days with the pressures placed upon them.” Said Jacque
GrayClay originally began educating in the field of cosmetic medical aesthetics in 2004 and has matured to represent one the strongest contenders in this field. “We identified the niche in the market quite a few years ago, and travelled extensively to research what opportunities were available, even overseas. There was very little representation anywhere in this field of education. We were surprised to see that no one was really focusing on this gap in the market.
This brings some significant focus to the Gold Coast. Being the only on campus facility on the East Coast of Australia that is licensed to provide this curriculum, GrayClay have already had one family relocate from NSW so their daughter can undertake studies this year.
GrayClay will begin delivering the new curriculum from the Central Queensland University in Southport and practical components will be delivered from Dr. John Flynn’s Cosmedic & Skin Clinic. “We are very fortunate to have the support of such a renowned cosmetic physician, Dr. Flynn is the Patriarch of our College, and has been an avid supporter of accredited qualifications for the profession.”
The following that GrayClay now has from the professional industry has led to a unique opportunity for one enrolled student. The reputation of the College has already led to an enrolled student gaining employment in a cosmetic medical practice prior to her even commencing her studies this year. Jacque said that “We have always had strong interest from prospective employers for graduates from any of our courses, but usually they are employed upon graduation not upon enrolment. However, we were told by this particular clinic that they were willing to employ an enrolled student to ensure they received one of our graduates. This has created such a wonderful opportunity for this student”
