The VTCT Level 2 Award in Skin Cancer Awareness for Non-Healthcare Professionals has been designed to enable beauty therapists, complementary therapists, nail technicians, sports massage therapists, fitness instructors, hairdressers, and barbers to recognise the signs and symptoms of skin cancer. You will be able to alert clients to changes in their skin and sign-post clients to public information and their GP.
