Due to developments, emerging trends and changing regulatory/ legislative/ technological requirements within the Hair and Beauty Sectors, it’s important we review and update the National Occupational Standards (NOS), NOS Suites and related products to meet industry needs. We need assistance from those within the Hair and Beauty Sectors to help us reflect, develop and shape the Standards.


Habia/SkillsActive invites you to support the Beauty Aesthetics National Occupational Standards Review.


Early 2018, Habia/SkillsActive with support from Key Stakeholders launched a project to review the National Occupational standards (NOS) in Beauty Aesthetics.

Following an initial Steering group meeting in August 2018, industry experts were recruited to assist Habia/SkillsActive to redraft the existing National Occupational Standards (NOS) in Beauty Aesthetics.

The Consultation survey can be accessed here
