Partnermeeting in Oudenaarde (05-12-2021)
The next partner meeting will take place on January 27 and 28. This is subject to the proviso that COVID-19 does not become a bummer. During this meeting, the discussion of the draft report on the entrepreneurial and hairdressing competencies for the future will be central. In the various partner countries and at EU level, Febelhair, together with the other partners, has mapped out the developments with regard to technology, sustainability and entrepreneurship.
In addition, time will be devoted to discussing progress in developing the salon's environmental system. The impetus will also be given for O3 and O4 respectively the development of a scan and learning material.
Development of the environmental system on track (15-11-2021)
Due to COVID-19 and organizational problems (partner change) we experienced some delay in the development of the standard. In the partner meeting in Milan we discussed the various work processes in the hair salon from an environmental perspective. Our partner Universidad from Spain has started mapping the legal aspects at European level that apply to the salon. In The Netherlands, we further mapped out all aspects and tested these aspects and the legislation in the practice of the hair salon. Fortunately, a teacher from ROC Amsterdam (the other Dutch partner) also owns a hair salon.
In this way we have gathered sufficient information to prepare for the upcoming partner meeting in Oudenaarde.

• development of a profile of a hairdresser and its competences (sustainability, technology, entrepreneurship) in 2030;
• a simplified low threshold system to label sustainability/environment for schools (salon); • a self-assessment internet tool on competence level and measuring the gap on profiles and future competences and the gap of the level towards the sustainability system;
• specific learning material on sustainability/environment focussed on the sector and
• awareness tools to use in VET and salons to use in communication with employees and clients on the subjects.
The developed outcomes can be applied for the project target groups: VET-institutes, SMEs, sector organizations and others in the Hair & Beauty sector. More information you can find on this site or contact your local partner.
