Welcome to the Survey for the development of the Advanced Aesthetics National Occupational Standards 

Skills Active, the Sector Skills Council for Active Leisure, Learning and Well-being. Habia is part of the Skills Active group and have been commissioned to develop further advanced aesthetic NOS following on from Beauty Aesthetics in 2019 and the more recent Advanced Aesthetics NOS development published in March 2020. With Governance direction and identified priorities from Key stakeholders UK wide have helped inform the proposals for further new advanced aesthetic NOS.

Why complete the survey?

· To share your expertise to raise skills and standards in the sector
· To support and shape future qualifications 

Purpose of the survey:
During these unprecedented times brings an increased necessity to do what we can to ‘support’ and ‘future proof’ businesses and safe practices. Over the past few months, we have worked with teams of industry experts to develop the draft National Occupational Standards for Aesthetics, creating robust and a coherent set of standards in light of ‘new ways of working’. We would now like your views on what is being proposed.

How long will the survey take to complete?
Following the review of the draft NOS, approximately 20-30 minutes

How long will the survey be open?
This questionnaire is available from the 2nd December 2020 until Thursday 7th January 2021. Feedback from this UK wide consultation will then inform the final drafting of the NOS. This NOS project is due to conclude in March 2021 following which the new NOS will be made available.

Additional to the online Consultation, Habia/SkillsActive will be conducting ‘telephone’ surveys and two remote events, 10am, Wednesday 9th December 2020 and Wednesday 6th January 2021, 10am- 12pm.. If you know others who may be interested in taking part in the consultation, please pass on the survey link: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/VRNR5Q3
