COSMETOLOGY AND BARBER LICENSURE THROUGHCAREER AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION (CTE)PILOT PROGRAMINTRODUCTIONThrough a combination of academic classes and hands-on learning experiences, high schoolstudents enrolled in Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs gain academic,employability, technical and real-world skills that prepare them for many postsecondary optionsincluding direct entry into a skilled career, apprenticeships and college.In the Commonwealth, more than 1,700 approved CTE programs are offered in over 200 schools.Those schools include 80-plus regional Career and Technology Centers (CTCs) and more than 140high schools.The majority of CTCs in Pennsylvania operate as a “shared time” option; students spend abouthalf of the day at the CTC engaged in a CTE program and the other half of the day at their homeor “sending” high school where they take required academic courses and earn a high schooldiploma.For students interested in becoming a cosmetologist or barber, Pennsylvania has 72 cosmetologyprograms and three barber programs within its CTCs. The Cosmetology Law requires 1,250 hoursof instruction for licensure as a cosmetologist, which CTC students typically complete over aperiod of three years (grades 10, 11 and 12). Likewise, the Barbers’ License Law requires 1,250hours of instruction for licensure as a barber. In each case, the required education is providedthrough a sequential set of steps that address specific subjects and tasks necessary for state boardpreparation, graduation and entry-level job skills.
COMPONENTS OF THE PILOT PROGRAMThis pilot program provides additional opportunities for cosmetology and barber CTC students toearn educational hours and practical experience. It is also designed to allow CTC educators theflexibility necessary to assist these students in obtaining all of the required education hours priorto their planned graduation date. These opportunities and flexibilities will help achieve thecollective goal of students, educators and parents/guardians, which is to graduate prepared andcompetent future cosmetologists and barbers . . . on time.The pilot consists of three major components by which cosmetology and barber CTC students mayearn educational credit toward their respective 1,250-hour instruction requirements: (1) DistanceEducation, including Practical Skills Review; (2) Internships and Job Shadowing; and (3) InPerson Instruction.1. DISTANCE EDUCATION1 - UP TO 650 HOURSIn recognition of the unique challenges faced specifically by students in cosmetology and barberCTC programs, the amount of allowable instruction through distance education is 650 hours.Such distance education can be a combination of theory-based subjects and skills and, asexplained in more detail below, for review of certain previously-taught practical skills. SeeAppendix A.The Cosmetology Board’s regulations recommend that a cosmetology student’s education include50 hours of instruction in “Professional Practices” (Pennsylvania Department of Education Tasks101-401). For cosmetology CTC students participating in this pilot, all 50 hours may beobtained through distance education.The Cosmetology Board’s regulations recommend that a cosmetology student’s education furtherinclude 200 hours of instruction in “Sciences” (PDE Tasks 501-1004). For cosmetology CTCstudents participating in this pilot, all 200 hours may be obtained through distanceeducation.The Cosmetology Board’s regulations recommend that the remainder of a cosmetology student’seducation include 1,000 hours of instruction in “Cosmetology Skills Cognitive andManipulative” (PDE Tasks 1101-2304). Due to the techniques that must be learned in order topractice cosmetology and barbering and the nature of some of the tools and equipment involved,many of the cognitive and manipulative skills need to be taught and evaluated at least partially (ifnot entirely) in person; they cannot be taught solely via distance learning or on a virtual platform.For example, shampooing is a process that would be difficult to teach/learn entirely online if astudent did not, at some point, have access to a standard shampoo bowl with which to work.There are, however, some tasks within “Cosmetology Skills” that could be taught virtually fromstart to finish. As such, cosmetology CTC students may earn credit for hours of instruction in thefollowing areas, even if taught entirely via distance education: PDE Tasks 1102, 1303, 1401, 1403,1For purposes of this pilot program, “distance education” is learning that is accomplished while thestudent is at a location separate and apart from their cosmetology or barber school.
1502, 1609, 1802, 1804, 1902, 1906, 1908, 2001, 2102, 2201 and 2204 (referred to hereinafter asthe “Theory-Based Tasks”).Even the tasks that are not one of the Theory-Based Tasks involve certain practical concepts wheredistance learning could be employed to allow students to earn hours for “practical skills review.”Delivery of instructional content from teachers to students, as well as teachers’ assessment ofstudent performance, would be achieved electronically (video, photographs, online platforms,etc.). “Practical skills review” hours may be earned for any of the Cosmetology Skills (PDE tasks1101-2304).To demonstrate practical skills to their CTC educator for credit, students may utilize any form ofvideo-based media or platform. Videos shall demonstrate practical skills as assigned by theeducator and may occur in real time or through recorded video. For recorded video, the educatorshall provide the student with the amount of time the student must practice a particular skill priorto the video demonstration. The video itself and the preparation/practice for the skill demonstratedin the video can be viewed and used for evaluation, and then counted towards the student’s hourlyrequirements, with the number of hours or fractions thereof earned through each of these tasksdetermined by the educator. Practical skills review could take a number of forms. For example: For skills and tasks that have already been taught, student-created videos or photos canbe particularly useful. For example, a student can submit a video of a hairstyle donethrough roller-setting of a before, after the roller set, and then the comb-out. The finalproduct could be graded. Teachers would have discretion to identify which skills theycould evaluate using videos or pictures.Students could also earn hours for a product-type skill by taking pictures at each step ofthe process, and then sending the pictures to the teacher through Instagram, email or thelike. Students could be given a rubric to use as a self-evaluation, which they would thenreturn to the teacher.Teachers could demonstrate a lesson using Zoom or some other platform, give studentsan assignment, and then the students can send in pictures or videos of their work (orstudents could bring their project into school on their in-school days) for the teacher toevaluate and give feedback.Teachers could demonstrate a procedure using Zoom or another platform whilestudents follow along with the teacher and practice at home. Teachers could observestudents in real time. Students can produce a final product during in-school days.Students can ask questions and the teacher can evaluate the final product.For cosmetology CTC students participating in this pilot, the number of hours that may beobtained through distance education will vary, depending upon how many distance educationhours a student earns for “Professional Practices” and “Sciences.” For example, if a student obtains50 hours of instruction in “Professional Practices” and 200 hours of instruction in “Sciences” (bothmaximums), the most a student could earn for “Cosmetology Skills” would be 400 hours ofinstruction. Those 400 hours could be spread across a combination of (a) virtual instruction in theTheory-Based Tasks, and (b) hours earned for “practical skills review” (any of PDE Tasks1101 2304).The Barber Board’s guidance currently allows for 625 hours of instruction through distanceeducation. This allowance will increase to 650 hours for barber CTC students participating in thepilot program, with the breakdown of specific subjects set forth at Appendix B. The additional 25hours may be spread out over any of the subjects and in varying increments as determined by theteacher. For subjects that cannot be taught entirely via distance education, barber CTC studentsmay also earn hours through “practical skills review” in a manner similar to cosmetology CTCstudents.
Certain adjustments and accommodations can be made at the teacher’s/school’s discretion, andflexibility is encouraged with student’s having unique circumstances or needs. Students who areunable to access video-capable devices by reason of IEP or other issues outside of the control ofthe CTC or student are permitted to use alternative methods identified by the CTC educator to earnhours.For example, if a student lacks certain equipment to perform practical tasks, CTCs may allowstudents to borrow school equipment for home use. CTCs could also provide students withartificial products that simulate cosmetology products to allow students to practice chemicalapplication procedures at home without using the actual chemicals.2. INTERNSHIPS AND JOB SHADOWING UP TO 350 HOURSThe second component of the pilot program allows students to earn up to 350 hours in a licensedcosmetology salon or barber shop.Existing Vocational Program Participants: Students participating in a vocationalprogram through the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, Goodwill IndustriesInternational, Inc. or PA Careerlink may earn up to 350 hours of credit towardsthe required 1,250 instruction hours for work done through one of thoseprograms. The hours must consist of practical experience rather than jobshadowing.New Vocational Program Participants: All other CTC students shall be permittedto obtain 350 educational hours through practical experience at a licensed salon (inthe case of cosmetology students) or at a licensed shop (in the case of barberstudents). The hours must consist of practical experience rather than jobshadowing.Job Shadowing: For students not participating in a vocational program, anothermeans of earning hours is job shadowing. Cosmetology CTC students will bepermitted to shadow a licensed cosmetologist or cosmetology teacher in a salon,and barber CTC students will be permitted to shadow a licensed barber or barbermanager in a shop. Students then earn hours preparing and presenting reports ontheir job shadow experiences. Teachers may use their discretion to determine theformat of such presentations, the number of hours that may be earned, and so forth.Except as otherwise noted herein, each cosmetology CTC student shall at all times be supervisedby a licensed cosmetologist or cosmetology teacher who has at least five years of experience.Similarly, each barber CTC student shall at all times be supervised by a licensed barber or barbermanager who has at least five years of experience. Existing vocational program students shall bepermitted to remain with their pre-existing supervisor/salon or supervisor/shop, regardless of thesupervisor’s years of experience.The CTC educator shall provide the supervisor and student with a list of practical skill assignments.Each supervisor shall complete a “Verification of Practical Experience” along with a “PracticalExperience Hourly Report” in substantially the form provided herewith at Appendix C forsubmission to the CTC educator on a monthly basis.The salon or shop shall notify each client upon whom the student performs services that the serviceis being performed by a student. The salon or shop supervisor may, at his or her option, allow thestudent to perform practical skills previously taught by the CTC educator upon a mannequin forobservation and evaluation of practical skills. For example, the student could practice anddemonstrate a cut, foil wrap or some other skill that the educator has already taught. The supervisorwill use a rubric provided by the CTC educator to gauge the student’s skill level, with the rubricthen returned to the CTC educator for grading.
For each student earning hours at a shop or salon, CTC schools shall provide a letter to the salonor shop identifying the students and indicating the student’s participation in the pilot program. Thesalon or shop shall keep this letter on hand in the event of an inspection. Students shall carry someform of identification with them (driver’s license, school ID or the like) while in the salon or shop.3. IN-PERSON INSTRUCTION NO LESS THAN 250 HOURSThe third component of the pilot program is traditional, in-person instruction at the student’s CTC.The number of hours will vary, depending upon how many hours the student obtains from the firstand second components of the pilot. For example, if a student obtains the maximum 650 hours ofinstruction through distance education (component 1) and 350 hours in a salon or shop (component2), the student will need to obtain 250 hours of in-person instruction in order to reach the requiredtotal of 1,250 hours. Certainly students could obtain more than 250 hours of in-person instruction,and therefore not need the full 650 hours of distance education or the full 350 hours in a salon orshop.Cosmetology CTC students may work on other students in school. Similarly, barber CTCstudents may work on other students in school.* ****
