VOCATIONAL REFORM


New Zealand Board of Professional Skin Therapies Industry Petition

 


Petition to the Minister of Education on behalf the New Zealand Board of Professional Skin Therapies to request that the proposed Order in Council for the Health, Community and Social Services Workforce Development Council contains explicit responsibilities with respect to ensuring the effectiveness of training and education programmes.


We the undersigned, support the NZBPST [ NZ Board of Professional Skin Therapies] in requesting that:


⦁ The Order in Council Proposal for the Establishment of the Health, Community and Social Services Workforce Development Council be amended to provide effective and consistent enforcement of the development, standard setting, and programme endorsement of training programmes as required under Section 366 [b to h] of the Education and Training Act

and

⦁ The industry title of “Beauty Therapy” be renamed “Skin Therapy” to,

⦁ be more reflective that the nature of treatments is to improve skin health and wellbeing, and

⦁ avoid the pejorative implication that without such therapy a person is not considered aesthetically pleasing
