Aesthetic training companies Harley Academy in London and SkinViva Training in Manchester have partnered together to offer the OfQual-accredited Level 7 Certificate in Injectables for Aesthetic Medicine qualification.
The Level 7 qualification aims to provide a pathway for medical professionals who are developing their skills and their businesses.
According to the training companies, the qualification is fully compliant with the requirements of the 2016 HEE review. Students who enrol onto the programme showcase their capability and newly learned skills by carrying out injectable treatments of dermal fillers and botulinum toxin, while establishing a portfolio of 40 supervised patient cases. They will also complete coursework assignments and objective, structured clinical examinations, which are marked by externally-approved assessors.
Both SkinViva Training and Harley Academy will continue to individually educate their own students for training courses and mentoring, however assessment services will be provided by Harley Academy’s team.
Lee Cottrill, business development director for SkinViva training, said, “Both our organisations share a common set of corporate values and beliefs on the need for regulation and tighter standards. We’re hopeful that this will be a fruitful relationship to help continue to shape the industry for better standards.”
Dr Tristan Mehta, CEO for Harley Academy, added, “We’re excited to be working in partnership with SkinViva Training. Pooling our resources and skills allows us to provide greater geographical coverage across the UK for students wishing to obtain a recognised, highly credible qualification that allows medical professionals to prove they meet a set of independently verified standards in injectable treatments”
