National skin cancer awareness charity Skcin launched MASCED in January 2018. This FREE online accreditation programme aimed at hair, health and beauty industry professionals has been an unprecedented success for the charity who are renowned for their dedication to the prevention and early detection of skin cancer to save lives.

Over 4,750 people have signed up to receive this ground-breaking Melanoma and Skin Cancer Early Detection (MASCED) training since its launch and success stories of industry professionals spotting the first signs of skin cancer after taking part in the campaign give clear evidence of it’s importance, effectiveness and impact.

In support of ‘Melanoma May’ 2018, Skcin are excited to announce that the MASCED training programme will hitting the road with the MASCED ROADSHOW taking place in 11 locations across the country during the month of May and into June - with more locations planned and dates to be confirmed. From Sunderland to Suffolk, Skcin will be harnessing the power of their Ambassadors and industry tutors to deliver this bespoke training to hundreds of students within hair and beauty colleges across the country.

By working with colleges, who are training young adults to enter these industries, we are able to embed valuable educational messaging to a younger and notoriously difficult-to-engage audience, arming them with the power and knowledge to make a positive impact, not just for their future clients, but their friends, families and crucially themselves.

The MASCED Accreditation programme, not only teaches young adults to spot the early signs of skin cancer and melanoma, but also focuses on the risks of UVR and how to prevent the disease, to influence behaviours, for a positive, sun safe, skin cancer free future.

We are proud to be working with many colleges and salons who are also hosting fundraising events as well as taking part in group training sessions. Look out for events near you or sign up for the MASCED independent online training for free at: www.masced.uk
