How CPD is transforming the beauty industry right now

The aesthetics industry has changed immensely over the last decade, with many new products and treatments having become available to clients. The increased demand for innovation has inspired beauticians, cosmetologists, hairdressers, and other professionals in the beauty industry to seek new knowledge and skills.

And while demand for training and qualifications has grown a lot and more courses have become available, it is also increasingly more difficult to know which training is good and which one isn't. There's no single authority or organisation that vets training and can help aspiring beauticians in making their choice.

And, as training courses become more accessible and the demand for qualifications and credentials grows, it has become more challenging to determine which training is worthwhile and which is not.

The concept of CPD has come to the rescue. More and more practitioners within the beauty industry are recognising the need to be seen as professionals and are becoming dedicated to demonstrating that they are continuously enhancing their skills.

CPD Standards Office's accreditation of beauty training is regarded as a real badge of excellence and quality - one that is not dependant on promotion and good marketing, but on the peofessional's genuine commitment to high-quality training.
