Cidesco beauty and spa therapy qualifications now in line with SCQF and EQF frameworks

Cidesco has announced that its Beauty Therapy and Spa Therapy syllabi are now in line with the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF) at Level 7/8, which corresponds to the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) at Level 5.

The syllabi have been mapped for the Higher National Certificate/Diploma in Beauty Therapy Level 7 and 8, and the Professional Development Award in Spa Therapies Level 8 on the Scottish Credit and Qualification Framework.

The mapping of the qualifications was independently verified by The Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA), which accredits and awards qualifications, and Bell Farrell Consultants. The components of each have also been officially certified.

CIDESCO International president Anna-Cari Gund said, “We are absolutely delighted to be mapped and levelled by the SQA and EQF. Being a global non-profit organisation offering examinations in over 40 countires, this enables our international members to map their qualification levels to their national standards. This ensures they have received the highest standards of training in beauty and spa therapy, giving peace of mind to our students, ensuring a career pathway.”
