SkillsIQ, under the direction of the Personal Services IRC and the Skin Rejuvenation and Cosmetic Tattooing Technical Advisory Committees, is now seeking feedback on Draft 1 SHB Beauty Training Package Products, including updates to 5 existing qualifications and associated Units of Competency. In addition, two new qualifications have been developed in Cosmetic Tattooing and Skin Therapy.
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:
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.
- clarifying the number of Assessments required
- relocating information better placed in the Elements and Performance Criteria
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:
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.
- 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 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 email@example.com 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.
