CIBTAC – Confederation of International Beauty Therapy And Cosmetology – is an International examination Board recognised world-wide for the training and education of Beauty and Complementary Therapists.

In order to satisfy the requirements to hold CIBTAC accreditation, the school must offer a professional environment with very high standards in all areas. This high standard must be maintained and an extremely thorough process is undergone to achieve accreditation status.

There is a wide range of diplomas to choose from with only a few required restrictions. At the end of the course there is an examination in theoretical and practical studies and if the External Examiner is satisfied in every aspect, a CIBTAC Diploma will be awarded.

With a CIBTAC Diploma a therapist can work all over the world guaranteeing their employer a safe, competent and professional service. All CIBTAC courses are directly linked to employment within the industry.

All students are required to gain their CIBTAC Student Insurance which costs no more than £25 for the year and is available from BABTAC (British Association of Beauty Therapy and Cosmetology) and is one of the Leading and most recognised Beauty Industry Insurance Bodies which ensures good practise and offers valuable support and advice for all therapists and students.

The Principal

Anita Hayman qualified in 1985 with CIBTAC, CIDESCO and ITEC qualifications in Beauty Therapy.

Anita has over 25 years Salon and business experience in the health, beauty and fitness industry. She also has over 15 years teaching experience within this industry and she is currently on the National Advisory Committee for City and Guilds ensuring quality standards within the industry.

During her career she has built up a reputable Beauty Salon which gained accolades such as Professional Beauty’s Best British Beauty Salon & Health and Beauty Salon’s Best Regional Salon

On a more personal level she was a finalist in 2001 Guinot Therapist of the Year and a finalist in 2004 in Professional Beauty’s Therapist of the Year.

Her idea of opening a training school evolved due to her frustration as an employer having to re-train college leavers.

Upon networking with many Salon owners over the years who have been experiencing the same problem Anita decided to take the ‘bull by the horns’ and open a School of Excellence.

The School will promote realistic Salon practices, a professional salon environment which uses professional Brands, encourage sales training and employee respect and understanding of the employer, as well as offering work placement opportunities.
