We provide students with modern, leading edge facilities to meet growth in local demand for training in commercial cookery, hospitality, tourism, aviation, events, automotive, and the hair and beauty industries. The campus features a purpose built bakery kitchen, wine cellar and the refurbished Caldera Restaurant, as well as a functioning hair and beauty salon, a new automotive transport and logistics facility, a fully equipped gymnasium and a simulated hospital facility.

Our campus is located just two minutes from the sparkling sand and surf in the quiet coastal town of Kingscliff in the Bundjalung Aboriginal nation.

Student life

    • Sarah-Jane Ryan, Creative Director of Lady Bella Wedding Services, is often described as a creative-hippy soul with an entrepreneurial mindset. These qualities have been a winning combination for the TAFE graduate, who recently took out the Excellence in Personal Services award at the 2016 Tweed Shire Business Excellence Awards. “I always knew I wanted a creative career, but wasn’t entirely sure where my speciality’s lay, so I enrolled to study creative arts at TAFE, to gain a taste of the various discipline areas,” Sarah-Jane recalls. “Throughout this period, my passion for creativity was fierce so I continued to further my creative skills by studying makeup, and which led me to establish Lady Bella Makeup Artistry in 2010.” “A career in the hair and beauty industry is fast paced and incredibly rewarding for a creative human-being. There are endless opportunities to use your skills to enter the wedding industry, film, television, social media, become a salon owner or even an educator. "So follow my lead and invest in yourself, its simple let go of your fears, dangle your feet over the edge, take a few steps back close your eyes and jump into the deep!” encourages Sarah-Jane.
