Government Education Reform (RoVE)

The Government’s Reform of Vocational Education (RoVE) is rolling on. This will have significant implications on the quality and standards of training provided to new entrants to our industry.

The NZ Board of Professional Skin Therapies wrote submissions and petitioned our industry to be recognised within the Health, Education and Social Services sector and for us to be recognised as skin therapists as a distinct industry.

All main skin therapy courses will now come under the Health category.

The Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) is establishing a new central collective for tertiary education called The Institute of Skills and Technology. All tertiary training courses have been divided into six Workforce Development Councils (WDC’s), which are charged with deciding what type of training structure would best suit ALL tertiary educational courses.

We are now at a crucial time of the reform initiative. This is where you, the business owner and therapist must speak up. Unless you do so, TEC will continue to listen to other industry organisations and the same educators that have created our present educational situation.

Without your voice, our credibility will further decline with increased client injuries and complaints [I have received several major complaints this year], destroy industry confidence, and individual reputations. Continual concerns raised by the public, has the potential for government to introduce regulations/legalisation and prohibit therapists performing skin penetrating treatments, resulting in loss of profits and possible business closures.
