The Queensland International College of Beauty (QICB) will open its doors to Toowoomba in early 2016, with the highly regarded school moving into the former Sam’s Warehouse Building bordering Ruthven, Russell and Keefe Street in the heart of the Toowoomba CBD. The college will offer a range of beauty courses to the Darling Downs area which include Diploma of Beauty Therapy, Certificate II in make-up, Certificate II in Beauty Services and Certificate IV in Beauty Therapy.
QICB CEO Jane Walters said that the school had been looking at Toowoomba as a possible location for some time. “Toowoomba has been on our radar for a number of years with all of its offerings and growing population – it is a very exciting expansion of our services for the whole team.” Walters said. With a combined 66 years of beauty experience, Walters and Principal Executive Officer (PEO) Doris Morgan provide a wealth of knowledge and insight into the industry, as well as technical capability.
“Our ethos is not just about learning the skills required to enter the beauty industry but to train students to succeed in it.” Morgan said.Graduates of QCIB are the most sought-after pool of prospective employees for beauty salons and spas Australia-wide because of their training in the nuances of the beauty industry. The management team inspected the new location on the morning of Wednesday December 16.
