Training and Assessment methods
This program is to be delivered in a classroom based environment and in simulated work environment called the Salon (a fully functional & operational hairdressing and beauty salon) to provide access to appropriate environments for the practical components of the course.
All theory based delivery will occur within designated classrooms through structured training sessions from a qualified Trainer / Assessor employed by the RTO. At these training sessions a qualified Trainer/ Assessor will provide the required skills and knowledge as per the unit content and will ensure the learning is imparted. The Trainer/Assessor will have designated session plans to reference to ensure the learning content is provided consistently to all students.
As part of this course students will also be required to undertake practical activities related to the course content. These practical activities will be undertaken in an appropriately simulated environment free of OHS hazards.
As this is a competency-based program, the student gains feedback through the training and assessment is undertaken once the unit has been delivered. The assessment process may include written questions, verbal questions, case studies, assignments, projects and practical demonstrations.

Eligibility for government funded training in Victoria is based on your citizenship, residency status, age and previously completed qualifications.
Generally, you are eligible for a government-subsidised training if you are:
- an Australian citizen
- an Australian Permanent Citizen (holder of a permanent visa)
- a New Zealand citizen
and are any of the following:
- under 20 years of age
- seeking to enrol in a Foundation Skills List course (and do not hold a Diploma or above qualification or are receiving core skills training in other sectors)
- seeking to enrol in VCE or VCAL
- seeking to enrol in an apprenticeship
- 20 years and older and ‘upskilling’ by seeking to enrol in a course at a higher level than your existing qualification.
Students are eligible to commence a maximum of two subsidised courses at the same qualification level in your lifetime. This restriction applies whether or not you complete the courses. For example, this means if you have already commenced two courses at the Certificate III level, you may only commence courses at the Certificate IV level (or above).
This restriction does not apply to courses on the Foundation Skills List or to students recommencing training in the same qualification (at the same or a different provider).
Under exceptional circumstances students may apply for an exemption to the rule allowing only two commencements at the same level, enabling them to enrol in a further qualification at the same level. No exemptions are available for any other eligibility criteria.
In addition, eligible students can begin up to two subsidised courses in a year as long as you are not doing any more than two courses at a time.
If you are eligible for Government Funding and enrol in a course subsidised by the Victorian and Commonwealth Governments under Skills First Funding, this will affect your future training options and eligibility for further government subsidised training under Skills First Funding.
