First Lankan hairdresser to get AQF

Leading hairdresser Cheryl Gooneratne recently returned from Australia having successfully been assessed by Merrill Gratton, Educational Manager in Hairdressing Level III and Level IV in TAFESA, Adelaide, Tea Tree Gully Campus. She became the first Sri Lankan hairdresser to fall in line with the Australian Qualification Frame work (AQF) through the TAFE system Australia.

With a growing number of students following hairdressing in Sri Lanka and with opportunities for better prospects overseas in this trade, Cheryl's achievement is timely.

The TAFE Level III Certificate will be conducted for the first time in Sri Lanka at the Cheryl Gooneratne Academy of Hair Dressing in collaboration with TAFE Sri Lanka (Pvt) Ltd.

This will give students an opening in deciding the options of continuing the programme to the next level, obtaining employment overseas and also not having to incur expenses in training in Australia to obtain the same certificate.TAFE Sri Lanka (Pvt) Ltd., headed by Lionel Pinto, is an organization established under Private Public Partnership framework (PPP) under the patronage of the Ministry of Vocational and Technical Training Sri Lanka.

The Australian Certificate Level III in hairdressing has been designed as the standard entry level qualification for the hairdressing industry.
