“My name is Paul Ho, I am originally from Hong Kong and lived in Australia for over 20 years.
I have been working as a hairdresser at Biba Salons and with the hairdressing industry in Melbourne for the last 13 years, however after starting hairdressing and barbering, I soon realised I had a passion for helping others in the industry and so I set a goal to one day to become a hairdressing educator.
As part of that I knew I needed to obtain my Certificate IV in TAE qualification. During my course I loved learning about how to design a learning program, assessment plans and the process of quality review for training materials.
As a result of gaining my Cert IV TAE I am now an educator at the BIBA Academy. I spend about 80% of my time teaching and the other 20% of my time working at the salon.
Completing the course online was certainly a great choice as it allowed me to fit everything in around my schedule. Not a walk in the park of course, but learnt so much from the course and the support that I got was fantastic.”
