The Perth-based group offers courses including cosmetic dermal science, dermal therapies and cosmetic nursing.

Ms Sim-Sproule said she was delighted to have been nominated.

“It is a huge honour to be recognised for many years of work and dedication in maintaining and improving industry standards in the beauty, health and cosmetic medical fields,” she said.

“Cosmetic treatments and procedures have soared in popularity over the past 15 years and Niche has been an industry leader in developing courses for health professionals such as those with a health science or beauty therapy background, nurses and also doctors.

“These courses are vital for this emerging industry area as filled a gap in this unregulated high risk area.”

She said she was a huge advocate for empowering women.

“What we do is important, as we provide education and through education we provide hope and a future for many people who chose to work in this area,” she said.

“It’s important to me and the team that we empower others to believe in themselves and their ability to be successful in business.”

She said Niche’s goal was to work towards new courses and continue to support the Hunger Project, which does work in Bangladesh to empower women to end harmful traditional values.

“This year, I personally would also like to work a little closer to home so am very excited to be pursuing avenues where I hope I can assist in empowering our own Indigenous girls and women through personal care education,” she said.

“It is my goal to have this initiative investigated fully in 2019 and rolled out in 2020.”
