AACDS needs your support

From the 1st of January 2017, the VET FEE-HELP Government loan scheme will be replaced with the new VET Student Loans program.

The new scheme will be only available to courses on an eligible course list, and loans will be capped at either $5,000, $10,000 or $15,000.

This week, the Government issued a draft list of courses, which will be eligible for the new loan scheme. AACDS is currently working on our submission to have added to the list:

  • (10510NAT) Advanced Diploma of Cosmetic Dermal Science
  • (52707WA) Graduate Diploma of Dermal Therapies
  • (52709WA) Graduate Diploma of Cosmetic Nursing

If you wish to study in the field of dermal therapies and/or cosmetic nursing beyond 2017, then we kindly request your help.

The Government is taking feedback from the public about the draft eligible course list.

We strongly encourage you to show your support, by:

  1. Sending an email to VETStudentLoans@education.gov.au
  2. Subject headline: ‘Feedback on the eligible course list’
  3. In the email, state the course you wish to study and request that the course(s) be added to the list of eligible courses for the new VET Student Loans scheme.


Many thanks,

AACDS Management Team

Niche Education Dressed To Impress For WA Training Awards

We pride ourselves on being a remarkable private training institution & we hope to deliver training that is nothing short of that!


On Friday the 23rd of September, the WA Training Awards recognised the West Australian Education Sector and their efforts to provide exceptional training on both a large & small scale.
Niche Education Group were named as a finalist for the Small Training Provider of the Year award for 2016.
Unfortunately we weren't able to walk away with an award this year, but it has given us the push we need to strive for bigger & better things in 2017.

April Jorgensen, who is one of AACDS' Directors, was accompanied by some of the wonderful staff you may see walking the halls of the AACDS Head Office in Perth, Western Australia.

On behalf of all the staff at Niche Education Group, we want to formally congratulate all the finalists & nominees at this year's WA Training Awards.
