LAUNCH OF THE BACN SHADOWING

PROGRAMME

Our first Shadowing Project took place in November 2017. Feedback from our host clinic/mentor and our first participant was positive! This programme, put together by Jane Laferla, the regional leader for Wales and the South West, and her team, will really take off in 2018. We now have more than 15 Shadowing Clinics on our register and are looking for more. Pease contact Gareth Lewis to sign up to be both a host clinic and to participate – glewis@bacn.org.uk

BACN START UP PROGRAMME

This new programme will be launched early in 2018 and led by BACN partners. It is aimed at practitioners who are new to the aesthetic specialty and will comprise three one-day modules:

  1. Basic introduction to aesthetics
  2. Aesthetics as a business
  3. Case study from a BACN practitioner

The details of the Start Up Programme are currently being developed and will be revealed by the BACN later in the year.
