SKCIN BECOME MEMBERS OF THE CITY & GUILDS INDUSTRY ADVISORY BOARD

Skcin are proud to announce we have been invited to sit on the City & Guilds IAB (Industry Advisory Board).

The IAB has been formed to demonstrate City & Guilds commitment to meeting employers’ needs in the Beauty, Nails, Spa, Media Make-up and Complementary Therapies sectors. The IAB comprises employers, Professional Associations and product houses to ensure that City & Guilds have the rigour, quality and content needed to support young people to progress within the industry.

CEO of Skcin Marie Tudor said: “We are delighted to become members of the City & Guilds IAB. We have been working together for some months now and they are hugely supportive of our MASCED (Melanoma and Skin Cancer Early Detection) programme that supports the industry with quality, dermatologist reviewed and industry body endorsed training.

Having already trained thousands of industry professionals how to spot the early signs and symptoms of both melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer and how to advise their clients to seek appropriate action, we have saved many lives. We want to support City & Guilds in teaching young people entering the industry not only how to detect skin cancer, but how to prevent it as almost all cases are avoidable by adopting simple sun safe practices.

Educational intervention is what we do, what we know and what works - it is key to reversing the soaring rates of skin cancer in the UK and we are very proud to be working alongside City & Guilds to build awareness amongst young people progressing within the industry”.
