Congratulations to our 2019 CIBTAC Student Winner

Karen Saab, The Healing Zone, Dubai

Karen went the extra mile to ensure her application wowed the judges enough to earn the accolade of star pupil.
 What does winning this award mean to you?
Being a member of such a respected institute like CIBTAC is already a reward in itself but winning this worldwide award is definitely a great honour and a true symbol that hard work pays off in the end.
 What made you want to apply? My educators suggested I apply for this award. I didn't want to let them down and wanted to do my best to make them proud.
 What was the toughest part of the application process? The toughest but also the most enjoyable part was shooting the treatment video because it needed to be perfect. The guidelines on how the video left room for me to be creative and really show the best version of myself without restrictions.
 In your opinion what makes a stand out student? I believe in order to stand out at anything in life, it is very important to go the extra mile. Most people have the tendency of doing only what they are asked, but you only shine when you are willing to put in more attention and effort than others are.
 How did you celebrate your win? With my closest friends and family - they are the people who mean the most to me and know what I have gone through to get here, so they appreciate the win just as much as I do.
What’s on your to-do list for 2020? I have already started collaborating with the esteemed European Medical Center & Aesthetic Surgery in Dubai where I am developing the Skincare/Non-invasive Aesthetic department so my biggest goal in 2020 is for it to be up and running. We want it to be the go-to destination for all the men and women in Dubai looking for honest and high quality, medical grade skin treatments.
What advice would you give to anyone thinking about applying for the awards next year? I would advise them to make their application stand out and to invest time in the quality of their video and editing because it will be a representation of themselves. They can be amazing therapists but they also need to be able to market their skills in the short duration of their video. Trust me, it's worth it!

Congratulations to our 2019 CIBTAC Tutor Winner

Tara O'Halloran Cronin, Kerry ETB Training Centre

They craft, mentor and educate the beauty therapists of the future so to be awarded CIBTAC tutor is no mean feat as Tara knows all too well.
What does winning this award mean to you? I have delivered CIBTAC qualifications for 20 years this year, so winning the award has energised and motivated me to look forward to developing the next 20 years with such pride. To be recognised by the premier awarding body in Beauty Therapy as Tutor of the year is an amazing achievement. My trainees are so proud and the industry supporting their employment in my area of Co. Kerry have been celebrating with us.
What made you want to apply? I felt that the opportunity to network and share ideas with the best of the best in training providers would be a fabulous experience. What was the toughest part of the application process? This was tough in respect of deciding how to illustrate you passion, motivation and full career in writing. In the end, my trainees assisted me with their feedback.
In your opinion what makes a stand out tutor? My trainees enable me to become a stand out tutor. Their learning journeys, stories and successes enable me to become the happiest cheerleader and mentor in Ireland.
What’s on your to-do list for 2020? We are opening The Kerry College of Beauty here in Co. Kerry so I will be delivering classes on the full time CIBTAC, ITEC and CIDESCO provision with our Beauty Therapy Instructing team. I will of course be considering my options in training within beauty therapy further education with the award of €10,000 in training as tutor of the year so it is very exciting.
What advice would you give to anyone thinking about applying for the awards next year? Go for it!! To be a finalist and to meet the incredible professional CIBTAC Team, the global finalists and supporting companies was a brilliant experience. Winning has been a privilege and I feel so lucky to have been chosen.

The Confederation of International Beauty Therapy and Cosmetology (CIBTAC) has been producing beauty, complementary & spa therapy graduates of the highest calibre since 1977. We offer a wide range of world-class qualifications, including beauty therapy, spa, complementary and teaching, striving to maintain and develop the highest standards of excellence internationally. Established in 1977, CIBTAC was created from an identified need to provide relevant, high-quality training within the beauty, complementary & spa industry. We were founded, and continue to be run by, passionate industry professionals.


Congratulations to our 2019 New CIBTAC Centre Winners

The International College of Cosmetology, Latvia

It’s no surprise that the winning CIBTAC centre got their entire team involved in the application process. Elizabete Libiete, International Project Coordinator told us how. What does winning this award mean to you? Winning the award gives us a great deal of motivation. We have worked incredibly hard to give our centre the value it has today and we’re not stopping. We think it’s important for students to know that the industry recognises our services as first class.
What made you want to apply? In our Latvian culture, it is not common to boast. However, with the globalisation and saturated market, there are so many establishments that will say whatever the consumer wants to hear while the quality is not always there. When we looked at our centre, our staff and our graduates we could see that we are bringing real value to the customers so while it meant coming out of our comfort zone, we thought our good example should be shared to inspire others.
 What was the toughest part of the application process? I remember the application process as an exciting but lengthy one. It was a team effort to gather all the information needed and required creativity. We especially enjoyed getting back in touch with some of the graduates for their testimonials.
In your opinion what makes a stand out education centre? Ultimately the success of any education centre lies in its teaching staff. A centre might have the most state-of-the-art premises, up to date equipment, futuristic software, and even the kindest administration, but without skilled teachers, no results can be achieved. At our centre, none of the teachers work full time with us. They practice what they teach, hence never losing touch with the real world - the market. It’s also important that they are considerate, kind and perceive the students as equals.
 What’s on your to-do list for 2020? On April 23rd, 2020, we are organising a conference called Sustainable Wellness. We use the term “sustainability” not only to talk about the environment but our lifestyle too. We find it crucial to discuss ways in which we, as representatives of the beauty industry, can lessen our negative impact, and how as an educational institution we can add to the cultivation of responsible society.
 What advice would you give to anyone thinking about applying for the awards next year? Make sure to give it enough time and involve your team. It’s also a good idea to collect both big and small achievements in one file as they happen. Sometimes it’s hard to remember all of the good things you’ve accomplished throughout the year.
