It is our mission to promote the highest standards in therapy training and practice, which includes promoting the FHT’s mark of quality to therapists, healthcare providers and the public. We do this nationally in a number of ways, including advertising in print and online; ensuring editorial coverage in consumer publications, such as Natural Health and In The Moment magazine; and working closely with key stakeholders and decision makers within health and social care, government, employment and education.
We also raise awareness on a regional level through the FHT Ambassador Programme, which sees specially appointed, local FHT Ambassadors visiting colleges throughout the year, providing talks to students.
The programme puts a trusted, trained FHT representative in the classroom, giving students reliable and up-to-the-minute information about best practice, regulatory matters, insurance, and all the valuable support the FHT has to offer therapists, every step of their career.
This October, FHT Ambassadors Mary Dalgleish and Pam Hardy gave presentations to an eager class of students at the London College of Beauty Therapy (pictured above) and East Sussex College (pictured right) respectively, while closer to FHT’s headquarters in Hampshire, Alice Mort gave presentations at Eastleigh College, Fareham College and Totton College.
Other colleges and training providers whose students have recently benefited from an FHT Ambassador visit include Bolton College, Bradford College, Cardiff and Vale College, City of Bristol College, City of Glasgow College, Chesterfield College, Coleg Gwent, Coleg y Cymoedd, Core Elements, Glasgow Clyde College, Glasgow School of Massage, Havering College, In-House Training, Keighley College, Merthyr Tydfil College, Newcastle College, Peter Symonds College, Sheffield College, Trafford College, West Nottinghamshire College and Wiltshire College.
