NVQs and SVQs are the basis for a great deal of the training that takes place in the UK hair, beauty, nails and spa industries. Here you can find information on what they are, how they work and the different levels you can study. What are NVQs/SVQs?National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs) and Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQs) are work-related, competence based qualifications that allow learners to work and train in a salon, spa or training centre with progress measured through ongoing, continuous assessment – not by time-serving or exams.They reflect the skills and knowledge needed to do a job effectively, and show that a learner is competent in a particular role.

How do NVQs/SVQs work?All NVQs/SVQs are made up of separate units that set out exactly what a learner must be able to do and to what standard. Each unit is like a mini qualification, representing a training target for building up credits towards a final certificate.

The overall NVQ/SVQ is achieved through continuous assessment and training. Assessment is conducted via on-the-job observation and questioning. Learners produce evidence to prove they have the competence to meet the NVQ/SVQ standards. Assessors sign off units when the learners are ready after testing the learner's underpinning knowledge, understanding and work-based competence to see if they can demonstrate competence in the workplace.


Who writes them?NVQs/SVQs are written by Awarding Bodies and delivered by training providers, but are based on the National

Occupational Standards (NOS) created by habia.

Level 1This is an introduction to the industry, based on assisting technical staff in the salon. It is aimed at school-work experience,

inductions and special needs learners. Level 1 is available only in hairdressing and beauty therapy.

Level 2Level 2 is junior level and covers basic skills and knowledge. It is the minimum standard required to work effectively in a salon.

Level 2 is available in hairdressing, beauty therapy, nails services and barbering.

Level 3Level 3 is the target qualification for anyone wanting to be a truly proficient professional in their chosen field. It expands upon the

basic skills of Level 2 and is aimed at those wishing to enter the top level of their profession or go on to become salon managers and owners. People who have been in the industry for some time but are looking to update or accredit their skills can also take it. Level 3 is available in hairdressing, beauty therapy, nails services, spa therapy and barbering.

Am I eligible for NVQ/SVQ training?Within reason, NVQs/SVQs do not have to be completed in a specified amount of time. They can be taken by full-time employees or by school and college students with a work placement or part-time job. There are no age limits and no special entry requirements.

Your Rights

Contract of Employment

Minimum Wage


Your rights as an employee

Sources of contract terms

Contract terms can come from a number of different sources; for example they could be:

verbally agreed

in a written contract, or similar document

in an employee handbook or on a company notice board

in an offer letter from your employer

required by law (for example, your employer must pay you at least the minimum wage)

in collective agreements (see below)

implied terms (see below)

If there's anything in your contract that you're unsure about, or which is confusing, ask for it to be explained to you.

It should be made clear what forms a legally binding part (that is, a 'term') of your contract and what does not. For example, your company handbook may set out a procedure that your employer will aim to follow if they can, but that it not legally binding.

If either you or your employer breaks a term of the contract, the other is entitled to sue for breach of contract.


Your responsibilities, in law, as an employee

Unfair discrimination in employment is wrong.  It is bad for the individuals who are denied jobs and access to vocational training, who suffer victimisation or harassment, because of prejudice. It is bad for the businesses which are denying themselves access to the widest pool of talent and not sharing in the benefits - such as increased motivation, lower turnover of staff and access to wider markets - that a diverse workforce and effective equality policies can bring.

What this means is that your boss can not discriminate against you or any of your clients if,

Age discrimination

Religion and belief

Sexual orientation
