The New SA Register for

Qualified Hairdressers and Barbers

This initiative is based on the SA Government’s Hairdressers Act which stipulates hairdressers and barbers must be qualified.
The Association believes unqualified hairdressers (and barbers) are detrimental to the industry; but it would be strengthened if a significant number of unqualified hairdressers transitioned to being qualified (or recognised) as per the Act and through the Association's STAR (Skills and Training and Recognition) program.
The Register will help identify the level of unqualified hairdressers and barbers. It will be updated every year and made available to the Commissioner of Consumer and Business Services (CBS) – the government department that manages the Act.

Hairdressers and barbers will be able to easily apply to go on the Register by going to the Association’s website www.hairandbeautysa.com.au and following the prompts.

The Proposed Hybrid Pre-Apprenticeship Trial

The Association is at present in conversation with SA government to establish a Hybrid
pre-apprenticeship trial.

The aim of this trial is to take pre-apprenticeship students through an enriched program involving course study through a RTO, work experience in salons, social and industry events and a mentoring program throughout the trial period. The aim is to impart highly usable skills that will make them very employable as an apprentice for one of the participating salons.

For more information on the Pre-apprenticeship Trial and to register for this Trial please to go Association’s website www.hairandbeautysa.com.au .

2018 Hair & Beauty Ball

The Association is Celebrating over 80 years as the peak body for the hair and beauty industry in SA with a fabulous end of year Hair and Beauty Ball.

A Register and STAR Program for Unqualified Hairdressers to Become Qualified/Recognised

This register is the first step in a process whereby unqualified hairdressers and barbers may be able to become qualified or recognised as per the SA Hairdressers Act. The program for this process is called the STAR (Skills and Training and Recognition) program.
For detailed information on the STAR program for unqualified hairdressers and how to apply, please to go Association’s website www.hairandbeautysa.com.au and follow the prompts.

Completion of the 2017 Pilot Program

presentors

Last Monday, the 19th of June, the Hair & Beauty Industry Association of South Australia celebrated the completion of the 2017 Pilot Program that started on the 6th of March. This was the first step of the Association’s Industry Marketing Plan. The Program was business orientated and as it was a trial it was being delivered free to member salons that qualified for the program.

The program included seminars from government organisations including SafeWork SA & Consumer and Business Services (CBS), workshops and seminars from industry leaders and mentoring from experienced salon owners. Feedback has indicated that it has been a great success and the salons want the program to continue in some form as it’s the sort of thing the industry needs.

While it’s early days, salons can indicate their interest in similar  future programs by contacting Celeste at the office on 8271 1355.
