WHY CHOOSE CIBTAC?

ABOUT CIBTAC QUALIFICATIONS

All regulated qualifications carry an element of assessment. CIBTAC’s approach to examining our learners is to make these assessments as close to the challenging situations that an employee might face in their search for work, so that our graduates are salon ready and able to succeed, and are attractive to employers.

Although we understand that exams can be stressful, once a candidate can showcase their practical skills in front of a visiting examiner, they will always be able to rely on this achievement to help in real life trade-test situations, that are the norm, when being interviewed for a job in the beauty and spa sector. Having passed a CIBTAC exam, employers know that our graduates have measured up against requirements in personal presentation, and to communicate professionally with the examiner during the assessment, which are vital skills and attributes for success in the demanding beauty and spa industry.

Internationally Recognised

CIBTAC is regulated as an awarding organisation by OFQUAL, a UK government agency. This means that all our regulated qualifications appear on the UK framework and carry a Level (linking to the level of skills and knowledge needed to be successful in the qualification) that can then be compared with the frameworks of other countries. Our qualifications are also broken down into Awards, Certificates and Diplomas, which relate to the number of hours required to complete each qualification. These words have specific meanings in terms of qualification size that also link into the UK framework.

Other Recognised Qualifications

CIBTAC also has a range of “bespoke” qualifications which do not appear on the framework. These are respected and insurable industry qualifications that have been in existence for many years, before the start of an education framework in the UK in vocational subjects such as beauty therapy. Over the course of the next year, these will start to be moved across onto the RQF, or phased out because a similar qualification already sits on the framework.

In addition to our own qualifications, CIBTAC endorses training schemes in innovative continuous professional development (CPD) subjects that offer an excellent quality progression opportunity to learn a subject not already offered by CIBTAC or that bring a substantial benefit to the sector. After a comprehensive review of the quality of these courses CIBTAC places its prestigious endorsement mark to the certificates, which are produced by us in our UK head office.
