SKCIN CELEBRATES AFFILIATION WITH THE BRITISH BEAUTY COUNCIL

One year ago today Skcin launched their fourth national accreditation programme, MASCED (Melanoma and Skin Cancer Early Detection) a national training programme for hair, health and beauty industry professionals.

In just one year we have achieved a great deal. From Industry recognition and endorsement, national media coverage and peer review, to the implementation of a training roadshow across 11 UK locations. In just twelve months we are proud to have over 8,300 registered professionals across 30 industry sectors nationwide. In addition, international interest continues to gain momentum with registrations from 26 different countries across the globe.

We have received literally thousands of 5 star testimonials and recommendations with reports of how accredited professionals have spotted both non-melanoma and melanoma skin cancers, putting their new found knowledge into action and quite literally saving lives. 

On the day of our first year anniversary we are delighted to announce the support of the British Beauty Council, who in recognition of our work, have invited us to become affiliate members, helping us to connect with industry experts and potential stakeholders.

The British Beauty Council has been founded to represent the voices, opinions and needs of the British beauty industry and are committed to developing excellence and growth in a sector that is a significant contributor to the British economy.

Skcin is so unique and by educating industry professionals, and teaching them methods of early detection to help reduce the numbers of people with late stage skin cancer, is something we had to affiliate ourselves with. It is incredibly important work and personally I feel very proud to be supporting them."

Marie Tudor, from Skcin said: The MASCED Accreditation programme is a unique and innovative addition to the British beauty Industry. By increasing industry knowledge to prevent and promote the early detection of skin cancer, we can harnesses the power of the professional, enabling them to become powerful advocates in the fight against skin cancer and save lives.

Leanne Gillmore is MASCED Accredited!

Congratulations to Leanne Gillmore for completing the MASCED Accreditation!

“Very valid feedback from one of new accredited users . Skcin, national skin charity is the organisation that developed and launched MASCED. We previously relied on donations and provided our training for free. Over 4000 professionals have had the training for free of any charge. We now make a small charge to help us sustain the training moving forward and all monies go towards development of education to support our work. I found this course very interesting and without my tutor telling me about it i would not have known it was even available, I assume the payment for the course goes to a charity which is great, I could not see anywhere that confirmed this so maybe you would get more people to sign up if they know that the money to get the accreditation is going to a charity, Thanks”
