CIDESCO International which is based out of Zurich, and is 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. This sector has been in existence for just four years and has skilled and transformed over 4 lakh youth and helped them find employment by organizing placements and providing support for self-employment opportunities
Announcing the MoU, Vandana Luthra, Chairperson of B&WSSC, said, “It is the first-of-its-kind initiative in which a Sector Skill Council has signed an MoU with an international body for boosting the global mobility of the candidates trained in Beauty Therapy.” 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.
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.”
The MOU exchange took place in presence of Shri. Rajesh Agarwal ji , Joint Secretary, Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship and other eminent dignitaries from the Beauty & Wellness industry.
Beauty being a sector which is growing rapidly will definitely benefit from this partnership and attract more youth to come forward and make the most of the opportunities available through it.
