Habia's Assessment Strategies aim to strengthen assessment and verification of NVQs and SVQs. They standardise the assessment approach without losing the independence of each Awarding Body. This guarantees greater consistency within and between the Awarding Bodies.
Continuing professional development is an important part of the Assessment Strategy because in industries where fashions, products, techniques and equipment change so rapidly, it is essential that everyone keeps their skills and knowledge up to date to meet client needs. This is even truer for assessors and verifiers because they are the gatekeepers of standards for the next generation of beauty therapists.
Habia Assessment Strategies are based on solid research with the hair, beauty, nails and spa industries, learners, educators, assessment centres and the inspectors of government funded programmes. They have high levels of support from all these stakeholders and have been agreed with all Awarding Bodies.
