Home' INSTYLE Magazine : INSTYLE MARAPL 2015 Contents CHANGES TO APPRENTICE CONDITIONS OF
THERE HAVE BEEN changes to apprentice conditions of
employment this year, with the aim to ensure a fair and
consistent safety net standard of wages and conditions
that apply to all apprentices.
The first is changes to excess travel costs. Employers must
pay for excess travel expenses occu rred by an apprentice
in the case of apprentices attending overnight training
for a block of time. Travel costs include transportation,
accommodation and reasonable expenses incurred while
travelling, which exceed those costs incurred in travelling
to and from work.
The second change is to training fees, where
employers must reimburse apprentices for all registered
training fees within six months of the commencement
of the apprenticeship or within three months of
the commencement of the training provided by the
Registered Training Official, whichever is later.
Apprentices must also be paid for training, with
training considered time worked for the employer and
therefore eligible for wages. Also, apprentices must not
be required to work overtime or shift work at times that
prevent their attendance at training.

SOME OF AUSTRALIA’S most renowned stylists stepped out of their
comfort zone last January, travelling to the Philippines for a worthy
cause through Hair Aid.
Hair Aid has been conducted each year since 2011, with a one week
training program in Quezon City, Manila run in order to help the
residents earn a skill, gain employment and provide for their families.
However, as there are now over 300,000 families in the community
where Hair Aid provides training, the vision of Hair Aid is to increase this
program to a minimum of two trips in 2015, and four to six trips in 2016.
This year’s trip was comprised of Emiliano Vitale from é SALON,
Benni Tognini from Tognini’s, Caterina Di Biase from Heading Out and
Hair Aid Coordinator Bernie Craven from Aussie Hair Guru, as well as
other volunteers led by Project Coordinator Selina Tomasich.
The program places an emphasis on basic cutting skills, with the
focus being on sectioning and consistency throughout, as well as more
complex layering and blunt perimeter cutting. Other more specific
workshops teach everything from men’s haircutting to clipper cutting
and developing the students into trainers themselves.
SALONS ASKED TO RAISE
MONEY FOR STARLIGHT
THE AUSTRALIAN HAIRDRESSING
Council (AHC) and Scott Sloan of Sloans
of Lane Cove are putting on a fundraising
event, and there is ample opportunity for
you to participate. In support of Starlight
Day on the 1st of May, this event is
aiming to raise $65 000, enough to grant
ten wishes for ill children.
In the Salon Select Smiles for Starlight
initiative, salons are being asked to
add $1 to the price of every customer
service during the month of May, which
will then be donated to the cause.
Participating salons will be provided
with all the marketing material required
to engage clients and successfully support their own campaign
in-salon, across social media and through local press.
“My team and I have been working with Starlight for the last four
years, and we know firsthand how amazing the experience is,” said
Scott, the pioneer of Starlight’s successful Pop-up Salon initiative.
“There are so many children in need of some sparkle at children’s
hospitals around Australia and this is the hair industry’s chance to
show that we care.”
