At the end of the diploma the CIDESCO examiners come to our school for beauty assessment. 

CIDESCO Beauty Therapy Diploma

Is CIDESCO worth it?

Many prospective students ask us this question. Our answer is very simple, yes definitely!

We regularly talk to beauty industry leaders like beauty salon owners, luxury hotels and recruitment agencies for cruise liners.  They always tell us that CIDESCO students are the best in the industry. For this reason, our students tend to leave our school with a job in hand.  For those who are adventurous in spirit, CIDESCO also opens up ample opportunities for working abroad or on cruise liners.

If you are interested in obtaining a CIDESCO certification you can see our prospectus for the CIDESCO beauty therapy diploma.   CIDESCO have also introduced a Postgraduate beauty therapy diploma.  This diploma allows practising beauty therapists the opportunity to consolidate their experience and obtain an international beauty therapy diploma. You can find out further information on this diploma here.
