|PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION|
This qualification follows on from the Level 2 qualification in enabling learners to develop towards becoming professional hairdressers. This Qualification, registered at NQF Level 3, focuses on core hairdressing activities of cutting, relaxing, styling and colouring. In particular, the NQF Level 3 qualification should result in the learner achieving the status of a Junior Stylist, capable of performing many hairdressing services competently, though still under the supervision of a professional stylist.
The Junior Stylist is capable of:
Job market entrants often have little or no exposure to generic hairdressing or self-management and therefore 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.
The qualification allows a successful learner to follow a career in such occupations as:
