CIDESCO, the world standard for beauty and spa therapy with accredited schools in over 33 countries worldwide, has announced the launch of three new diplomas, which will appeal to a growing number of students keen to enter or develop and progress into this dynamic and expanding industry:
- Spa Therapy
- Beauty & Spa Management
- Media Make-up
These diplomas, designed in response to the dynamic growth and development in the beauty and spa industry, offer the highest standards of professional qualifications and will provide graduates with the means to equip themselves with the skills to succeed.
“The introduction of our new diplomas will open up careers in the Beauty and Spa Industry to a great many more people whilst still maintaining standards,” CIDESCO President Anna Cari-Gund said. “By offering a range of CIDESCO qualifications, schools and colleges can provide students with a flexible and supportive approach to their education and development in the Beauty and Spa Industry. With a CIDESCO qualification they can be assured that they have received a world class qualification that is second to none.”
Any student obtaining a CIDESCO qualification can be assured that the qualification will be recognised and respected worldwide within the Beauty and Spa Industry, and will enable them to ‘stand out’ in an increasingly competitive skills market.
The Spa Therapy Diploma gives candidates the opportunity to obtain a diploma in “spa therapy” without the prerequisite of a qualification in beauty therapy. CIDESCO recognised the need for a stand-alone qualification.
The Beauty & Spa Management Diploma has been developed to give graduates a real competitive edge in the marketplace. The course includes a greater emphasis on the range of activities required to manage an organization or business, such as human resources planning and customer service. This post-graduate diploma is available to holders of the CIDESCO diploma in beauty therapy and/or spa therapy and will equip any student with the necessary skills to undertake a management role.
The Media Make–up Diploma is open to candidates who have a passion for creative make-up to enable them to be employed in media, theatre, TV and fashion. This diploma teaches students how to apply make-up for television, film, catwalk and fashion industry magazines and theatre, as well as prosthetics and other areas which require special effects make-up.
