Just wondering, for those of you who know, is there any point to obtaining these qualifications?
Got a cousin who has trained in beauty therapy in Australia and wants to work in the UK and Ireland as a beauty therapist.
I've noticed that many jobs advertised say "CIDESCO etc or equivalent" whereas some prefer experience over qualification.
I would have thought a government accredited two year beauty therapy diploma would be an equivalent (which is what my cousin has) and yet she's been told that the above add ons are a requirement in Ireland.
I have never heard of this.
Would love to hear opinions on this.
