Funding Arrangements regarding the Certificate III in Hairdressing 
Published: 14 Sep 2016

This notice clarifies funding arrangements regarding the Certificate III in Hairdressing, which has been included in the Funded Course List (FCL) 2017 for funding as both an apprenticeship and a non-apprenticeship, since its release on 26 August 2016.

The FCL 2017 seeks to include only the most recent versions of courses, to ensure it reflects current industry needs. Where courses have been approved by the Victorian Regulation and Qualifications Authority (VRQA) to be delivered as an apprenticeship, in addition to a non-apprenticeship, this is reflected in the Funded Course List 2017.

The period between the release of a newer version of a course and its approval by the VRQA as an apprenticeship course does not preclude the newer version from being delivered immediately as a non-apprenticeship course. This was the case for Certificate III in Hairdressing. Up until today, the older version of this course (SIH30111) was originally included on the 2017 FCL, for apprenticeship delivery. The newer version of this course (SHB30416) was also originally included on the 2017 FCL, only as a non-apprenticeship, pending VRQA approval for SHB30416 to be delivered as an apprenticeship.

The VRQA has now determined that SHB30416 – Certificate III in Hairdressing is approved to also be delivered as an apprenticeship.

Therefore, from today, SIH30111 will be removed from the 2017 FCL and SHB30416 will  be offered for government-subsidised training for both apprenticeship and non-apprenticeship delivery.

Please note that existing students enrolled in SIH30111 will be able to complete their apprenticeship course in this superseded version of the Certificate III in Hairdressing, and the 2017 subsidy will apply as of 1 January 2017. However, from 1 January 2017, new students should be enrolled in the latest version of this course (SHB30416).

The FCL for 2017 can be found on the Skills First website at http://www.education.vic.gov.au/skillsfirst/Pages/fundedcourses.aspx

Marjorie Milner College will be delivering SHB30416 Certificate III in Hairdressing for apprenticeship from 2017. On the 14 September 2016 we have asked HESG to clarify when the SHB30516 Certificate III in Barbering will become an apprenticeship. We are hopeful to start Apprenticeship classes in October 2016 for Certificate III in Barbering. The Barbering qualification was endorsed by the VRQA as an apprenticeship on the 26th August as well.
