Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
The Hair and Beauty sector is a very fast-paced, creative, ever-changing industry where new treatments, services, trends and techniques are continually developing. As a consequence of this continual change, we recommend that you frequently refresh and update your skills and knowledge. Often professionals look to undertake 30 hrs of CPD each year. If you are a Teacher/ Trainer/ Assessor check with your Awarding body so you are aware of what hours they stipulate, this will be checked by the Internal Quality Assessor (IQA) as well as an External Quality Assessor (EQA) to ensure you are up to date.
