francapelli academy has been a private Registered Training Organisation (RTO) for over 17 years and training is delivered with Victorian and Commonwealth Government funding – training organisation identifier (TOID) number 6055.

We deliver Certificate III in Hairdressing, a nationally recognised qualification.


As a 21st century training provider, francapelli academy is committed to the betterment of practical and theory systems as demonstrated through our training policy structure.

Our Trainers are highly skilled and passionate, selected not only for their expert knowledge but also for their ability to communicate and teach effectively.


We know with the right attitude, approach, focus and direction, anything is possible.

We constantly witness the outcomes of exceptionally talented students and salon owners who are truly grateful for their experience with us, knowing our training policy and its structure stand the distance of progress and development within the hairdressing industry.

We are truly proud to have an academy that delivers results.  Below are some points regarding our philosophy:

  • 4 Educators (all specialising in different areas)

  • Small class sizes (at the moment not exceeding 15 students per class)

  • Theory in morning from 9.00am to 9.15am (break) & 9.25-12.10pm (break)

  • Practical work in afternoon 12.50pm to 2.20pm (break) 2.30pm - 5.00pm. Students are required complete 6 practical tasks which are highlighted on individual training plans.

  • Work done on mannequin heads such as practising highlighting & sectioning until student proves competency. If requested we can organise work on human models and services in our Training Centre (please speak with Administration for more information).

  • No student kept waiting ridiculous amount of time to have his or her work assessed.

  • We strongly believe in quality not quantity

  • Happy to work with salon owners re: their philosophy on training their apprentice

  • Regular reports emailed to student & employer

  • Will notify employer if student hasn’t arrived for their nominated day at Academy

  • Situated right next to Glenferrie Station

  • One day a week training or block release training available

  • Apprentices attend 9.00am to 5.00pm.
