CIDESCO Launches New Portfolio of Diplomas

CIDESCO, the world standard for beauty and spa therapy with accredited schools in more than 33 countries worldwide, has launched three new diplomas. The new qualifications include a Spa Therapy Diploma, which gives candidates the opportunity to obtain a diploma in spa therapy without the prerequisite of a qualification in beauty therapy. The Beauty & Spa Management Diploma has been developed to give graduates a competitive edge in the market place. The course includes an emphasis on the range of activities required to manage a business, such as human resources planning and customer service. This postgraduate diploma is available to holders of the CIDESCO diploma in beauty therapy or spa therapy. The Media Make–up 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. “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,” says Anna-Cari Gund, president of CIDESCO. “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.”
