Why is it influencing the Irish aesthetics sector?
As many would know ITEC/VTCT, CIBTAC/BABTAC are fundamental in the UK beauty industry, as such training guidelines and training level structuring have been influenced by the HEE reports. Compounding this, other countries, in Asia, as an example, have also been pushing for more regulation and standardisation for better client outcomes and insurance purposes. ITEC/VTCT represents the largest and most respected awarding body for the beauty sector worldwide. With the need for worldwide accredited qualifications also means standardisation. So for them, directives taken on board in the UK have to be implemented throughout the training colleges for uniformity.
