We are currently undertaking a review of the Make-up qualifications pathway, comprised of the following three qualifications:
The qualifications are due for review to ensure they remain current, and we took the opportunity to look at the pathway into the industry for make-up artists.
General conditions for programmes have been updated and grouped under subheadings for Programme Design, Practical Experience, Professional Practice, and Cultural Skills. These statements are to assist programme developers and reflect a strengthened emphasis on required professional cultural skills, including the integration of te ao Māori and other cultural perspectives.
Conditions related to graduate profile outcomes (GPOs) have been moved from the qualification to a separate Programme Guidance document that will be available on the Toi Mai website and will be continually updated, as required, to account for curriculum-related changes.
New Zealand Certificate in Make-up and Skin Care (Introduction) (Level 3) [Ref: 3442]
New Zealand Certificate in Make-up Artistry (Level 4) with optional strand in Face Casting [Ref:3456]
New Zealand Certificate in Performance Make-up and Prosthetics (Level 4) [Ref: 3455] has been replaced by the New Zealand Diploma in Prosthetics, Performance Make-up, and Special Effects (Level 5)
The documents below detail the changes made.
The qualification review developed from an isolated review of the New Zealand Certificate in Make-up and Skin Care (Introduction) (Level 3) [Ref:3442]. Feedback from those earlier discussions indicated that the entire pathway needed to be considered. As a result, Te Puna Whāngai (advisory group) was assembled to represent the views of both industry and providers. This group met several times through June and July to discuss the pathway, supported by a smaller working group who refined the qualification detail.
