|PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION|
|Purpose of the Qualification
This Qualification is for any individual who is or wishes to be involved in the Hairdressing Industry. There are three Qualifications starting at level 2 and progressing to level 4. This Qualification will be registered at NQF Level 2 and is meant to serve as an introduction to the hairdressing industry and the basics of hairdressing.
Learners working towards this Qualification will find that the acquisition of competence in the unit standards, which make up the Qualification, will add value to learner's job. This Qualification is intended to enhance the provision of entry-level service within the Hairdressing Industry.
It will provide the broad knowledge, skills and values needed in the Hairdressing Industry and will facilitate access to, and mobility and progression within education and training to progress along a learning path for learners who:
The Qualification has building blocks that can be developed further and will lead to a more defined Hairdressing learning path at various NQF levels. It also focuses on the skills, knowledge, values and attitudes required to progress further. The intention is
The primary purpose of the Qualification is to develop the foundational, practical and reflexive competencies needed for a career in hairdressing.
Rationale for the qualification
Job market entrants would have little or no exposure to generic hairdressing or self-management and therefore often fail to make a success of a career in hairdressing.
Central to the rationale for this Qualification is the development of a culture of professionalism and service excellence in the hairdressing industry. This Qualification will provide for breadth and flexibility to match the needs of the learners, employers and industry as a whole. It will give the learners the key skills essential to be able to function effectively as flexible, adaptable and competitive hairdressers and for a lifelong career in hairdressing. These skills will make the learners employable and they will be able to make effective contributions to the hairdressing business by being able to apply the acquired knowledge and skills.
As the Qualification will be linked to a learnership which in turn addresses the issue of job creation, particularly in the SMME sector, the following key labour issues were taken into consideration:
The following broad skills categories were identified:
The unit standards were clustered and sequenced to ensure that learners are able to absorb tasks starting with simple activities and becoming more complex as they gain experience and confidence.
Many different roles and careers are accessible and linked to this Qualification. They include and are not limited to:
|LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING|
|The following is the learning assumed to be in place:
Recognition of Prior Learning
The structure of this Unit Standard based Qualification makes the Recognition of Prior Learning possible, if the learner is able to demonstrate competence in the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes implicit in this Hairdressing Qualification. Recognition of Prior Learning will be done by means of an Integrated Assessment as mentioned in the previous paragraph.
This Recognition of Prior Learning may allow:
All recognition of Prior Learning is subject to quality assurance by the relevant accredited Education and Training Quality Assurance Body and is conducted by a registered workplace assessor.
|RECOGNISE PREVIOUS LEARNING?|
|The qualification is made up of a combination of learning outcomes from Fundamental, Core and Elective components, totaling 130 minimum credits.
Fundamental: 48 credits - 37%
Core: 56 credits - 43%
Elective: Minimum 26 - 20%
Total: 130 Minimum - 100%
Motivation for number of credits assigned to fundamental, core and elective
At level 2, SAQA stipulates the minimum number of credits allocated to Communication Studies and Languages and Physical, Computer Mathematical and Life Sciences; should total 46 credits however the SGB felt that the additional fundamental unit standards chosen will add value to the qualification as a whole.
56 credits have been allocated to the Core Unit Standards. This is to ensure that the qualification has a strong Beauty Therapy focus.
The Core Unit Standards offer a broad contextual understanding and will enable the learners to gain an all round picture of the Beauty Therapy Industry.
A minimum of 26 credits must be selected by the learner from the Elective Unit Standard. There are a total of 52 credits for the Elective area. They also allow for progression to the next level of learning.

|ASSOCIATED ASSESSMENT CRITERIA|
Because assessment practices must be open, transparent, fair, valid, and reliable and ensure that no learner is disadvantaged in any way whatsoever, an integrated assessment approach is applied in this Qualification.
Learning, teaching and assessment are inextricably linked. Whenever possible, the assessment of knowledge, skills, attitudes and values shown in the unit standards should be integrated.
Assessment of the communication, language, literacy and numeracy should be conducted in conjunction with other aspects and should use authentic Beauty Therapy contexts wherever possible.
A variety of methods must be used in assessment and tools and activities must be appropriate to the context in which the learner is working. Where it is not possible to assess the learner in the workplace or on-the-job, simulations, case studies, role-plays and other similar techniques should be used to provide a context appropriate to the assessment.
The term 'Integrated Assessment' implies that theoretical and practical components should be assessed together. During integrated assessments the assessor should make use of formative and summative assessment methods and assess combinations of practical, applied, foundational and reflexive competencies.
Assessors and moderators should make use of a range of formative and summative assessment methods. Assessors should assess and give credit for the evidence of learning that has already been acquired through formal, informal and non-formal learning and work experience.
Assessment should ensure that all specific outcomes, embedded knowledge and critical cross-field outcomes are evaluated. The assessment of the critical cross-field outcomes should be integrated with the assessment of specific outcomes and embedded knowledge.
|Benchmarking was done by comparison to Qualifications, Unit Standards and Outcomes of learning against:
NZQA National Qualifications from New Zealand: -The National Certificate in Barbering - Levels 2
NZQA National Qualifications from New Zealand: - The National Certificate in Salon Support - Level 2
Registered programs from the American Barber College
The British NVQ Level 2 Hairdressing Certificate and related units in the Mandatory and Optional groups of units
A direct comparison of the title, specific outcomes, assessment criteria and embedded knowledge was undertaken with each and the best practice points were highlighted and incorporated into each unit standard. However the points incorporated were written in a South African context.
Because of the difference in levels across the different countries, difficulty was found in making actual direct comparisons, level to level.
|This Qualification lends itself to both vertical and horizontal articulation possibilities. These possibilities ensure both mobility and progression for the learner. The learning areas outlined in the Rationale for the Qualification indicates the articulation possibilities.
Horizontal articulation possibilities lay with other NQF level 2 Qualifications such as:
Vertical progression can be achieved by embarking on the study of related NQF Level 3 Qualifications:
A learner could follow a career in:
