Scratch Magazine: Nail & beauty pros wanted to help shape National Occupational Standards

By Helena Biggs | 07 December 2020 | Movers & Shakers, News

The Hair & Beauty Industry Authority (Habia) and Skills Active UK are inviting professionals in the hair, beauty, spa, aesthetics and nail sectors to support the review of the National Occupational Standards (NOS).

These standards are ‘statements of the standards of performance individuals must achieve when carrying out functions in the workplace, together with specifications of the underpinning knowledge and understanding.’

Draft standards have been shaped for each sector of the industry which are available to view. There are 12 files for the nail sector, including for application and maintenance of nail enhancements (natural finish), enhancing and maintaining nails using light cured gel and creating nail art designs.

Habia and Skills Active UK are inviting pros to read each standard and then complete a consultation survey by 7 January 2021 to help further develop each standard.
