CCS Disability Action says the lack of data on the number of disabled students in schools and early childhood education made setting policies and priorities to better support the disabled almost impossible. CCS Disability Action chief executive David Matthews, says the Education Review Office provides a detailed breakdown of ethnic groups within schools but has no breakdown based on disability. So while we know that 4 per cent, or around 98 students at Auckland Grammar School are Maori, we can't tell you how many students have special edu- cation needs or are in the Ongo- ing Resourcing Scheme,'' he says. The same is true for Early Childhood Education, he says. The Ministry of Education does not collect data on dis- ability and participation rates, but does on ethnicity. This is despite research pointing to major barriers for disabled chil- dren in early childhood edu- cation. The lack of data causes major problems for priorities and pol- icy. For example, the Ministry of Education in its early childhood education work is focusing almost exclusively on Maori and Pasifika. Until the government and experts recognise and address the barriers children with dis- abilities and their families face, real solutions to issues in edu- cation will be impossible.'' Course on nail glamour UCOL has got the thumbs up to offer one of only a handful of fulltime nail technician programmes in the country. The National Certificate in Beauty Services (Nail Tech- nology) has been introduced as a standalone qualification. For the past two years it was embedded in UCOL's Beauty Services programme but a change of unit standards has given nail artistry a green light for a fully dedicated course. There are 20 places avail- able at each of UCOL's Palm- erston North and Wairarapa campuses. The programme includes manicures, pedicures, acrylic and gel nail application, nail sculpture, 3D nail art, the use of equipment, products, and safe operating procedures. The 27 week programme is taught at UCOL's own beauty clinic over three days which includes one evening per week. The clinic is custom designed and fitted to meet industry requirements and international training standards. As a fully functioning clinic, the students have a profes- sional environment to offer a complete range of nail services to UCOL staff, students and the public during their train- ing. Associate Head of School of Hospitality and Continuing Education Margot Ferrick says: There is a heavy empha- sis on customer service and hands-on experience. When they leave us, our graduates are fully qualified and job ready. We are very excited to be national leaders in this qualification.'' UCOL's level 3 nail tech- nician qualification can lead to the certificate in beauty services level 4 and the dip- loma in beauty therapy level 5. Enrolments are now open for the programme that starts on February 20. Visit www.ucol.ac.nz or phone 0800 GO UCOL for more infor- mation.
