The CIDESCO Beauty Therapy Diploma and Spa Programme is the most prestigious international beauty qualification in the world. This highly regarded course ensures that graduates are among the elite of their profession. The programme is split into four main qualifications; CIBTAC Aesthetics, CIBTAC Body Therapy, CIDESCO Beauty Therapy Diploma and the CIDESCO Spa Diploma. Students will study the CIBTAC Beauty Therapy Diplomas for the first 28 weeks of study, then move onto the CIDESCO Beauty and Spa Diplomas for the remaining 19 weeks.
Students will also participate in our commercial salon once they have reached a certain level of competency with their practical skills, and will provide treatments to paying clients alongside our professional therapists.
On completion of the 47 weeks of study, students will have an advanced knowledge and practical understanding of the following areas of industry:
In addition to this standard curriculum, this course also incorporates training in:
Commercial Salon Experience
Students will also participate in our student salon once they have built up a certain level of competency with treatments. Our salon is run by professional therapists and is open throughout the year, therefore we have a large client base for both our professional therapists and our student therapists.
* Although the ‘normal’ study hours are 9am – 5pm, you will also be required to practice your treatments in our student salon on a fairly regular basis, which will include late nights. In the case of late nights, time off in lieu is granted (usually by means of a later start time).
There is an intensive period of revision of all subject areas in preparation for the CIDESCO exams. You will also be required to write a 4000 word thesis about your chosen treatment which will be presented at your additional subject exam alonside your choosen treatment.
In your final week of study your CIDESCO exam will incorporate the CIDESCO Beauty Therapy and Spa Programme. Students who fail any part of the Beauty Therapy examination will not be able to take the Spa Exam. Any students confronted with this situation will be able to re-take their exams with our next intake of CIDESCO students.
The formal teaching in both CIDESCO Beauty Therapy and Spa Programme takes place over eleven months after which you are required to have 600 hours of salon experience before receiving the CIDESCO Diploma. These hours can be achieved during your first job in any professional salon or spa in the world, provided you have the right to work in that country
