Employability Skills Summary

SIB30110 Certificate III in Beauty Services 

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. This is done through questioning and observation and by providing clear information on products used and services proposed or performed. Clients may also need reassurance or have questions answered throughout the performance of a service. Product information is read and interpreted to make safe and appropriate recommendations to clients. Communication skills are also used to follow instructions and respond to change, such as current workplace environmental sustainability procedures.

Problem solving 

Problem-solving skills are used when applying knowledge of contraindications to anticipate and mitigate problems by advising clients of alternative options and/or referring them to alternative practitioners. Problem-solving skills are also applied in the performance of routine retail activities, such as selling products and demonstrating skin care products. Problem solving is supported in the beauty environment by referral to legislation and/or industry guidelines, such as health and hygiene.

Initiative and enterprise 

Opportunities to use initiative and enterprise skills occur with the identification and provision of the most appropriate products and/or services to meet the needs of clients, within the boundaries of any contraindications which may be present. A beauty operator also needs to adapt services where there is a change in the client's condition during a service. Initiative and enterprise are also used to recognise where additional levels of service can be provided to a client.

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, to deal with complaints, and also to support team participation in environmentally sustainable workplace practices.

Planning and organising 

Information, time and resources must be planned and organised to deliver efficient and effective services. The needs of clients 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. The knowledge and application of health, hygiene and safety 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 operators are required to take responsibility for maintaining the currency of their knowledge by identifying and assessing learning opportunities and sources of information, including professional associations and the influences and inter-relationships with complementary industries.

Technology 

Technology is used through the use of fixed telephones or telephone systems, retail equipment and in some cases electronic client-booking systems. In a salon, staff must 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.
