Tips for gathering evidence to demonstrate your skills

The important thing to remember when gathering evidence is that the more evidence the better - that is, the more evidence you gather to demonstrate your skills, the more confident an assessor can be that you have learned the skills not just at one point in time, but are continuing to apply and develop those skills (as opposed to just learning for the test!). Furthermore, one piece of evidence that you collect will not usualy demonstrate all the required criteria for a unit of competency, whereas multiple overlapping pieces of evidence will usually do the trick!

What evidence can you provide to prove your understanding of each of the following citeria?

Apply knowledge of skin science to beauty therapy treatments

  1. The relevant principles of skin science are identified and applied to the performance of beauty therapy treatments according to relevant legislation and workplace policies and procedures.

  2. The growth, development, ageing and healing of human skin, including changes over time, are identified and their relevance to the performance of beauty therapy treatments is noted.

  3. The inheritance or genetics of physical traits and conditions which affect beauty therapy treatments are identified and related to the performance of beauty therapy treatments.

  4. The function, formation and behaviour of the major skin chemicals and the role of the endocrine glands and hormones in the body is identified and related to the performance of beauty therapy treatments.

Instructions to Assessors

Critical aspects of evidence required to demonstrate competency in this unit
Context of assessment

For valid and reliable assessment of this unit, competency should be consistently demonstrated over a period of time and observed by the assessor and/or the technical expert working in partnership with the assessor. The technical expert may include the beauty therapist and/or a skin science specialist and may be in a simulated environment.

Competency should be demonstrated in a simulated workplace environment in a range of situations which may include client interruptions and involvement in other related activities normally expected in the workplace. For further guidance on the use of an appropriate simulated environment, refer to page 32 of the Assessment Guidelines in this Training Package.

Relationship to other units

This unit is a co-requisite for a range of beauty therapy units. It requires an assessment outcome which includes evidence of the application of knowledge of skin science to the performance of one or more beauty therapy treatments.

This unit must therefore be assessed in conjunction with one or more of the following related units:

Method of assessment

The following assessment methods are suggested:

Evidence required for demonstration of consistent performance

For valid and reliable assessment of this unit, evidence should be gathered through a range of methods to indicate consistent performance.

It can be gathered from assessment of the unit of competency alone, through an integrated assessment activity or through a combination of both.

Evidence should be gathered as part of the learning process.
