  • Style Inspiration: YOU by Anna Barroca

    The 'You' collection brings a message from one woman to another, a direct conversation: Aren't you tired of always wondering 'what's in', 'what's on trend'? ‘You’ is an anthem to authenticity, a passionate reminder that you don't need to fit into any mould, or strictly follow trends. It's time to ask yourself: How do you want to see yourself, what do you want to convey to the world?   This collection invites you to connect with yourself, to express your true essence through your hair. It empowers you to choose, to be the director of your own image: the cut, the colour and the hairstyle become a genuine expression of who you are.   Fashion is fleeting, but your identity is eternal. NAIROBI A mid-length hair full of contrasts, aiming for maximum boldness. With strong disconnections at the top, where textures are sharp and free. The hair then falls like a gentle cascade, drawing almost ethereal waves. Brushstrokes of red, orange, yellow, and green intertwine masterfully to create unexpected volumes in the hair. SIDNEY A geometric bob that, thanks to the neatness of its lines, elegantly enhances the physiognomy of the head and face. The upper area, with a side part and a more fluid finish, contrasts with this cut that reinforces its personality by incorporating violet and mahogany tones, with a glossy finish that enhances the overall look. TOKIO An explosive short cut. The hair moves and expands with a life of its own, forward, creating a captivating and dynamic frame for the face. The bangs, sculpted in a daring inverted triangle, become the epicenter where the two main shades of the look converge: a vibrant orange and a passionate magenta, a fiery fusion that immediately captures attention. DUBÁI Even in the simplicity of lines, there is room for customization. The elevated volumes at the top of the cut and the definition of the finishes bring a sublime elegance, while the micro bangs, swept to the side and naturally open, add just the right touch of boldness and playfulness. The chocolate brown base is ignited and lifted with hints of mahogany and red.

  • EOHCB: The Importance of Workplace Approval for Host Employers with Learners Enrolled for Occupational Qualifications and Trades

    In the landscape of vocational training and education, the integration of practical workplace experience holds immense value. As learners embark on their journey to acquire occupational qualifications, the opportunity to apply theoretical knowledge in real-world settings is indispensable. Host employers play a pivotal role in facilitating this exposure, but why is workplace approval necessary for them to provide learners with such opportunities as part of an Occupational Qualification? Bridging the Gap between Theory and Practice One of the fundamental objectives of vocational training is to bridge the gap between theoretical learning and practical application. While classroom instruction provides a solid foundation of knowledge, it is the hands-on experience gained in real work environments that truly hones skills and fosters competence. Workplace exposure allows learners to put theory into practice, grapple with real-life challenges, and develop the confidence and proficiency required to excel in their chosen fields. Ensuring Quality Learning Environments Not all workplaces are created equal in terms of their suitability for training purposes. Some may lack the necessary resources, infrastructure, or commitment to mentorship required to provide a conducive learning environment. This is where the concept of workplace approval comes into play. By requiring host employers to undergo an approval process, regulatory bodies such as the Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO) and Sector Education and Training Authorities (SETAs) ensure that learners are placed in environments that meet predefined standards of quality and safety. This helps safeguard the interests of learners, ensuring they receive a meaningful and enriching learning experience. Compliance with Occupational Qualifications Occupational qualifications serve as blueprints for the skills and competencies required within specific industries and professions. These qualifications outline the knowledge, practical skills, and behaviours that learners must demonstrate to achieve certification. Workplace exposure is often a mandatory component of these qualifications, as it enables learners to fulfil practical requirements and gain firsthand experience in their chosen field. Host employers seeking approval to provide workplace exposure must demonstrate alignment with the competencies outlined in the relevant occupational qualification, ensuring that learners receive training that is both relevant and compliant. Fostering Partnerships and Collaboration The process of workplace approval fosters partnerships and collaboration between educational institutions (Public and Private Skills Development Providers – SDPs), regulatory bodies, and industry stakeholders. Host employers, by seeking approval to participate in learner placement programs, signal their commitment to supporting the development of future talent within their respective sectors. This collaboration not only benefits learners by providing them with valuable learning opportunities but also strengthens the ties between education and industry, ensuring that vocational training remains responsive to the evolving needs of the labour market. Enhancing Employability and Career Readiness Ultimately, the goal of vocational training is to enhance learners' employability and prepare them for successful careers in their chosen fields. Workplace exposure plays a crucial role in achieving this objective by equipping learners with the practical skills, industry knowledge, and professional demeanour sought after by employers. Through the approval process, host employers commit to providing learners with meaningful experiences that contribute to their overall career readiness, thereby increasing their prospects of securing gainful employment upon completion of their qualifications. Workplace Approval for Employers within the Personal Care Sector A critical component of occupational qualifications is access to a relevant and approved workplace. For this reason, all SDPs wishing to apply for accreditation need to have strong partnerships with employers who will provide their learners with access to workplace experience. For this reason, SDPs are encouraged to work with and, where appropriate, assist employers with their application for registration and as approved workplaces for occupational qualifications. This will provide a win-win situation, as SDPs in our sector are more experienced in and understand the Services SETA process. Entities wishing to be included in the database of approved workplaces should send an e-mail to: . Employers who wish to apply for workplace approval, please apply at . An automated respond will prompt you to send certain documents that will be evaluated by the evaluator before scheduling a site visit.
