Head of Hair and Beauty, Ruth Browne announced that Box Hill Institute had become an ITEC Centre, where an international ITEC examiner would visit to assess candidates’ theoretical knowledge and practical skills.

“ITEC will ensure that applicants meet the international standards of registered countries,” she said.
