Description

This qualification reflects the role of individuals who are competent in a broad range of beauty therapy treatments and services which may include facial massage, body massage, hair removal, cosmetic tattooing, spa treatments, lash and brow treatments, nail technology services, make-up, aromatherapy, providing advice on beauty treatments and services, selling retail skin care and cosmetic products and coordinating a work team.

Work would be undertaken as skilled beauty therapists in salons, spas and the wider beauty industry.

This qualification is designed to reflect the role of those who work relatively autonomously. It involves the self-directed application of knowledge and skills with substantial depth in some areas where judgement is required in planning and selecting appropriate equipment, services and techniques. Applications involve personal responsibility and autonomy in performing complex technical operations. The work reflected in this qualification may include participating in teams, and group or team coordination.

Employability Skills Summary

SIB50110 Diploma of Beauty Therapy 

The following table contains a summary of the employability skills required by the beauty industry for this qualification. The employability skills facets described here are broad industry requirements that may vary depending on qualification packaging options.

Employability skill 

Industry /enterprise requirements for this qualification include :

Communication 

Communication skills, both verbal and non-verbal, are used to establish and meet the needs of clients, advise on future services, and interpret and record client information. This is done through questioning and observation and by providing clear information on products used and services or treatments proposed or performed. There is also a need for negotiation and persuasion where more complex treatments are being provided. Clients may also need reassurance or have questions which need to be answered throughout the performance of a treatment. Product information is also read and interpreted to make safe and appropriate recommendations to clients, and treatment plans are developed and/or amended as required. Communication skills are also used to respond to change, such as current workplace waste minimisation and environmental sustainability procedures.

Problem solving 

Problem-solving skills are used when developing and/or amending treatment plans and throughout the provision of services and treatments by applying knowledge of contraindications, anatomy and physiology, and skin biology, for example, to anticipate and mitigate problems by advising clients of alternative options and/or referring them to alternative practitioners when performing facial or body treatments. Problem solving is supported in the beauty environment by referral to legislation and/or industry guidelines, such as health and hygiene.

Initiative and enterprise 

Beauty therapists provide complex treatments and are required to make decisions regarding the use of products and equipment and the length of treatments. These decisions are guided by workplace and client expectations and requirements, and safety, health and hygiene legislation and/or guidelines. Opportunities to use initiative and enterprise occur with the identification and provision of the most appropriate products and/or services to meet identified and future needs of clients, within the boundaries of any contraindications which may be present. A beauty therapist also needs to recognise changes in the client's condition during a service or treatment and take corrective action.

Teamwork 

Teamwork requires knowledge of the roles and responsibilities of all team members and accepted or expected workplace practices. It includes the ability to communicate with other team members to schedule and service clients and to assist as required by providing advice; sharing knowledge to support service provision and sustainable work practices

Planning and organising 

Information, time and resources must be planned and organised to deliver safe, efficient and effective services. Client needs must be determined to ensure that all relevant products and equipment are available and time is managed effectively to meet scheduling requirements. The use of resources must be planned and organised to minimise waste and prevent product and environmental contamination.

Self-management 

Self-direction is required to achieve desired client outcomes within the time and resource expectations of the workplace. This is supported by establishing a clear understanding of both client and workplace requirements and by actively seeking and responding to feedback from clients and colleagues. The knowledge and application of health, hygiene and environmental requirements are critical to the performance of this role.

Learning 

The beauty industry is dynamic, with changes to products and services as new trends emerge. Beauty therapists are required to take responsibility for maintaining and sharing their knowledge of new products, services, treatments and environmental best practice with a view to maximising business profitability.

Technology 

Technology is used through the use of electrical equipment for facial and body treatments and spa treatments. Beauty therapists must be familiar with the safe operating procedures for the use of this technology. Retail technology is also used and beauty therapists must also be able to deal with situations where technology fails or becomes unavailable, for example electronic funds transfer technology.

Due to the high proportion of electives required by this qualification, the industry/enterprise requirements described above for each employability skill are representative of the industry in general and may not reflect specific job roles. Learning and assessment strategies for this qualification should be based on the requirements of the units of competency for this qualification.
