Kat Rodda’s passion for knowledge grew deeper after her experience of mentoring and training at the Healthy Business Training Academy. Falling into hairdressing after dropping out from high school (there’s a song about that!), Kat wishes she’d discovered traineeships earlier.
Now a qualified hairdresser, make-up artist, barber and beautician with her own very successful business, and a qualified trainer and assessor, Kat has undertaken a dual diploma - a Diploma of VET and Diploma of Training Design and Development.
Kat can’t wait to share her freshly ignited knowledge with future students, and one day run her own beauty school, and share the amazing opportunities that VET offers.
