*What is a regulated qualification? 

Regulated reflexology qualifications are offered by ITEC, VTCT, City and Guilds, Cibtac, SEG awards (formerly ABC Awards) and Agored Cymru (offered by Centralia Centres). This means there is an element of external, non bias, moderation by the awarding body and the school have a strict learning framework to give you a quality course and learning environment. 

Regulated courses are required to cover the Core Curriculum and National Occupational Standards, ensuring that your learning meets current requirements in education.  This helps future-proof your qualification and ensures you will have the best opportunities for working as a reflexologist.

If you are still unsure if you meet the entry criteria, please either complete an inital information form or give us a call to discuss further
