CIDESCO International, the world standard for beauty and spa therapy, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with India’s Beauty & Wellness Sector Skill Council (B&WSSC). This will enable Indian candidates in the field of beauty to get the CIDESCO internationally recognised Certificate in Skincare, thus increasing overseas employment opportunities for trained professionals from India.
The Beauty & Wellness Sector Skill Council was established under the directive and support of the Indian Government to improve skills in the Beauty and Wellness industry. It was established to standardise the quality of education and to enhance employability of the Indian workforce globally.
Announcing the MoU, CIDESCO International President, Anna-Cari Gund says “This MoU will help in fast tracking India’s mission to produce world class beauty professionals. We are delighted that CIDESCO is part of this mission. The CIDESCO International Board and CIDESCO Section India are proud to be working together with this superb team.”

She added that this association will not only help to establish service delivery parameters but also bring about uniformity in training, increasing global work mobility, along with helping in knowledge exchange between India and other countries.
