Habia is recognised by government as the Standard Setting Body (SSB) for the hair, beauty, nails, spa and aesthetic sectors. For more than thirty years we have been developing national standards that form the basis of qualifications across the UK.
The Habia logo is a long-established, well-recognised sign of high quality standards, excellence and professionalism.
We work closely with Expert Working Groups (EWG) comprised of sector specialists to develop National Occupational Standard (NOS) that are then used as the basis of qualifications.
Recent developments include the Advanced Aesthetic Standards - see section below for link - LIVE now!
NOS specify UK Standards of performance that people are expected to achieve in their work, and the knowledge and skills they need to perform effectively.
NOS are developed by Standard Setting organisations who consult with employers and stakeholders across each of the UK nations, the result is a set of NOS that are suitable for use across the UK. The NOS are approved on a four-nation basis. They are developed as individual measures of competence but they are grouped in Suites.
