CIDESCO extends qualifications framework map 12 March 2018The World Standard for Beauty and Spa Therapy, CIDESCO, is now mapped to the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF) and European Qualifications Framework (EQF). Says CIDESCO international president, Anna-Cari Gund: “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 countries, 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.” CIDESCO’s Beauty Therapy Syllabus and Spa Therapy Syllabus is 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 CIDESCO syllabi for Beauty Therapy and Spa Therapy have been mapped for both the Higher National Certificate/Diploma (HNC/D) in Beauty Therapy (Level 7 and 8) and the Professional Development Award (PDA) in Spa Therapies (Level 8) on the Scottish Credit and Qualification Framework (SCQF). The components of each qualification have officially been certified. Mapping of the two qualifications were independently verified by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) and Bell Farrell Consultants Ltd.
