18/11/2013 - Stop teaching sunbed use

Our 12 year campaign for the Beauty Industry to stop teaching "sunbed" use has finally met with success!

We are delighted to report, that we have just heard from HABIA...

"At this present time we do have UV tanning as an optional unit in our NVQ Level 3 Beauty Therapy Qualifications. This will be reviewed next year and will be removed from the structure. We have already advised and will continue to advise the Awarding Organisations not to include UV tanning in any future qualifications structures."

Thank you to all who supported our on line campaign, to tutors who asked their colleges to drop the module, and to you, our supporters who lobbied for this change!
