What you will learn

You will be able to alert clients to changes in their skin and sign-post clients to public information and their GP. Professionals in the hair, beauty and wellbeing industries work closely with clients and in many cases have sight of areas of skin which may not be easily visibile to the client. Public awareness of skin cancer has never been higher, and yet skin cancer remains the fastest growing cancer in the UK, especially amongst young people. The chances of a positive outcome can be dramatically increased with early diagnosis. This qualification will enable hair, beauty and wellbeing professionals to gain the appropriate knowledge and communication skills required to provide non-diagnostic, professional advice and information to clients in a discrete, empathetic and confidential manner.
