A Case for Change was submitted by SkillsIQ, at the direction of the Personal Services Industry Reference Committee (IRC), to the Australian Industry and Skills Council (AISC) seeking to undertake an update of the nationally recognised Beauty Training Package Products included in the SHB Hairdressing and Beauty Services Training Package.  This Case for Change was subsequently approved by the AISC. 

The following five draft qualifications and associated Units of Competency in the SHB Beauty Training Package have therefore been approved by the AISC to be updated: 

  • SHB20116 Certificate II in Retail Cosmetics 
  • SHB30215 Certificate III in Make-Up
  • SHB30115 Certificate III in Beauty Services
  • SHB40115 Certificate IV in Beauty Therapy
  • SHB50115 Diploma of Beauty Therapy.

In addition to the update of existing SHB Training Package Products, two new qualifications are proposed for Draft 1:

  • SHB50319 Diploma of Cosmetic Tattooing
  • SHB60219 Advanced Diploma of Skin Therapy.

There are three components to this project.

1) Existing SHB Beauty Services Training Package Products 

The existing Beauty components in the SHB Hairdressing and Beauty Services Training Package have been updated in the following areas:

  • Minor changes to qualification packaging 
  • Updating of typographical errors
  • Removing equipment which has been identified as no longer used within the industry to perform treatments 
  • Development of two new Skin Anatomy and Physiology Units of Competency. Note: This is not new content, but has been extracted from existing Units. 
  • Updating of Performance Evidence:
    • clarifying the number of Assessments required
    • relocating information better placed in the Elements and Performance Criteria
    There are several areas which were proposed in the Case for Change where further consultation and feedback are required. Please refer to the Questions for Consideration in the Draft 1 Consultation Guide, available to download at the bottom of this page underAttachments

    In accordance with the Training Package Products Policy, qualification codes have been updated to reflect the expected year of endorsement and Unit of Competency codes have been updated where there have been changes of a material nature.

    2) Cosmetic Tattooing

    The existing Unit of Competency relevant to Cosmetic Tattooing, SHBBSKS003 Design and provide cosmetic tattooing, has been deleted and a new qualification has been developed to cover cosmetic tattooing for the face (eyeliner, lips and eyebrows) as well as scalp micropigmentation and breast areola. The qualification has been designed so that it is flexible enough for learners to choose one or more areas of interest. 

    3) Skin Rejuvenation Treatments

    The Advanced Diploma of Skin Therapy has been developed to include the following advanced treatment areas:

    • Light Emitting Diode (LED) skin treatments
    • Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) skin treatments
    • Laser skin treatments
    • Skin needling 
    • Chemical peels 
    • Consultation and post-treatment care.
    The qualification structure has been designed to allow the selection of either IPL or Laser or both IPL and Laser through the streamed elective options.

The Case for Change proposed the development of Units of Competency around sonophoresis and sound vibration. The Skin Rejuvenation TAC confirmed that sound vibration treatments and sonophoresis (ultrasound) for any purpose other than product infusion is inappropriate in Vocational Education and Training. Sonophoresis for product infusion is covered in the existing Unit, SHBBFAS006 Provide specialised facial treatments in the SHB50119 Diploma of Beauty Therapy, and therefore has not been included in the SHB60219 Advanced Diploma of Skin Therapy.

Consultation Activities and Timelines

National consultation on Draft 1 will take place from Wednesday, 4 September 2019 and will close at 5.00pm on Wednesday, 16 October 2019. During this period input will be sought on seven proposed qualifications and 71 Units of Competency and their associated Assessment Requirements. During this time SkillsIQ will also be meeting with industry stakeholders, employers and Subject Matter Experts (SMEs). If you have expertise in these areas and would like to meet with SkillsIQ, please contact us via enquiries@skillsiq.com.au or via phone at (02) 9392 8100.

Following the close of the consultation period, feedback received will be collated and evaluated. This feedback will inform the development of Draft 2, which will be made publicly available for validation prior to the submission for endorsement.

"Totally agree again Robert. It is essential training packages and courses recognise current industry practices. This is a requirement of the standards RTO'S adhere by. Dermal therapies are provided now by most salons, currently with non qualified therapists. This puts clients at risk and importantly puts our industry safety records back 10 years. Last year we saw a similar thing happen with the Laser course.SHB60118. The entry requirements are too prohibitive. RTO's have noticed a huge drop in enrolments, and many RTO's that used to offer the old course are no longer offering it. Again this course should be an entry level stand alone course with nothing to do with the beauty course, or at least be able to be completed in conjunction with diploma of beauty. That will ensure we have again qualified people performing these treatments. There is no legislation whatsoever in many states and minor legislation in other states so Skills IQ must follow current industry practice for client safety"

"Medical supervision is not required given the protocols already in place for the supply of topical anaesthetics. The supply of topical anaesthetics has been a complex issue for cosmetic tattooing that now has some well established processes that can and should be applied to skin needling. Most state and territory authorities do not seem to be focussing attention on skin needling, probably as it has only become 'big business' in recent years. Topical anaesthetics as Schedule 2 medicines (2 to 10% actives) can be supplied by a compounding pharmacy to the patient/client for use in a procedure. Most authorities are now allowing that patients can request assistance in application of these anaesthetics from their treating technician. No medical supervision is required. It is worth noting that skin needling covers a much bigger surface area than cosmetic tattooing and therefore the amount of anaesthetic available for absorption is more. Note also that shallow or superfical skin meedling, here defined as up to 0.5mm depth, does not need topical anaesthetic."

"This comment does not seem to recognise current industry practice, where the vast majority of these treatments are being performed at beauty salons and clinics around the country. Recognising current industry practice and driving engagement with accredited training will improve standards, reduce risks and allow skin therapy specialists to serve their clients well. To try and limit these procedures to medical practitioners would be highly detrimental to the beauty industry, drive up costs considerably, and put greater strain on the number of medical professionals available to conduct healthcare."

"totally agree Robert. These treatments are currently being performed by people with manufacturer training only. It is imperative training be made available for anyone who wants to do this pathway to ensure client safety. The whole industry is changing, we need to keep up with the times and ensure obtaining qualifications is not too difficult, e.g. diploma of beauty as a pre requisite is just not necessary. This should be a separate stand alone curse wit all necessary units, e.g. skin sciences infection control, etc"
