Training RPL ONLY:   £2600
QUALIFI Level 7 Aesthetics in Essex. Terri Tibbles

We are NOT offering this course until we know more about the new licensing scheme.
We only offer the QUALIFI Level 7 course to students already trained in basic and advanced Botulinum Toxin and Dermal Filler, you must be trained in the use of cannula methods and be competent.

You will be required to attend a 3-hour assessment day before we book you onto this course, to ensure that you are competent, this will cost £260, but will be deducted from the course price if you are successful. This is to test your practical skills, to ensure you are working to the same standards as the Level 7 course requirements.

If you are not already trained in injectables, we recommend you start with our basic Botulinum Toxin and Dermal Filler courses, then move on to our advanced courses, and then come onto our Level 7 course.

Every student will need to complete a pre-qualifying interview, before booking this course. We will be able to see what prior learning you have and decide which route is right for you.​​

The QUALIFI Level 7 Certificate in Aesthetic Practice is an advanced qualification aimed at Level 4 qualified practitioners aged 18 and over. This is the very first (non-Medics and medics) qualification offered by Ofqual, which is a major change for our industry.

Although these qualifications are NOT MANDATORY, we hope this is a glimpse of what is to come and that all practitioners will be required to have these qualifications to ensure good practice.

The qualification has been created to develop and reward aesthetic practitioners working today and in the future, to continue to bring recognition and professionalism to the health and aesthetics sector.
You will have the opportunity to learn a great deal from this course that will provide relevant new skills, knowledge and will encourage both academic and professional development so that you can move forward to realise not just your own potential but also that of organisations across the industry.

This qualification is very in-depth, you do need to understand this is a whole new level of qualifications and you will be expected to put in a lot of hard work to achieve this qualification. It is not a matter of how many days of training, this training will be delivered over months, with different learning assessments and methods, such as zoom and classroom-based learning.​​
QUALIFI L7 Aesthetics in Essex. Terri Tibbles
This is what we know about the new Injectable Licence as of the 6th of February 2023:
The Government has rejected a call by MPs to speed up the introduction of the promised licenses for non-surgical cosmetic procedures and a call for filler to be prescription only.
The Department of Health and Social Care published its awaited response to the 2022 Select Committee Report on the Impact of Body Image on Mental and Physical Health.
In the report, the Government also re-confirmed its commitment to developing a new license for non-surgical practice in England and said it will set new mandatory standards for aesthetic practice, education and training as part of a NEW licensing scheme in England by JULY 2023 - although these will not come into force immediately. 
What happened before this?
At the end of January, the Government confirmed its commitment to the licensing of the non-surgical aesthetics sector in England in a letter to the JCCP, British Beauty Council, and the Chartered Institute for Environmental Health (CIEH)
After submitting a joint letter to the Department of Health and Social Care, the industry bodies received a response outlining how the department is designing and implementing a new system of licensing for the industry.
The minister responsible for taking forward this issue, Maria Caulfield, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Mental Health and Women's Health Strategy, told the associations that "departmental officials will work as quickly as possible to introduce the licensing scheme and will consider all the important areas".
She also affirmed the development of future licensing to suit the ever-developing industry, saying: " We know this is a fast-moving sector, and officials will consider how best to future-proof the regulations so that new and emerging treatments are captured by the scheme."
When will aesthetic treatment licenses come into force?
The timetable is not finalised but the Government has now committed to publishing an outline of the licence guidance by July 2023. In their correspondence with Government, the JCCP, British Beauty Council and CIEH set out key priorities for the Government to action:
  1. The design and implementation of a national licensing scheme for all premises where licenced procedures are conducted as well as practitioners of non-surgical cosmetic procedures to ensure that all those who practise invasive procedures are competent and safe for members of the public (as proposed in Paragraph/Clause 180 of the Health and Care Act 2022).
  2. A requirement for all practitioners to hold adequate medical insurance in order to provide non-surgical cosmetic procedures.
  3. The development of official guidance on the training and qualification expectations for all practitioners, including knowledge and application of infection controls and first aid training.
  4. The development of a system for the effective recording of adverse incidents and public awareness raising to ensure that all cases that go wrong can be tracked and improvements to safety made as a result. Members of the public need better tools and knowledge in order to protect themselves.
What had happened with aesthetic licensing prior to this?
In September 2022, it was revealed that the consultation regarding licences for non-surgical cosmetic procedures was expected to begin at the start of 2023, with a further consultation on licences for premises later in the year.
The new licensing scheme, which is part of a bill that received royal ascent in May, will be introduced in updates to the Health and Care Act 2022.
The scope and details of the proposed new licensing scheme will be determined by Ministers following a period of engagement and public consultation.
The Joint Council for Cosmetic Procedures (JCCP) said in a statement on September 29th 2022 that "the consultation on which procedures are to be covered by the new licensing scheme is likely to begin in the early New Year". The JCCP added that "it is anticipated that a further consultation will then follow on the licensing of premises later in 2023".
The JCCP is working with partner organisations including the Cosmetic Practice Standards Authority (CPSA), the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH) and the British Beauty Council to support the design and promotion of new fair and equitable licensing schemes.
According to the JCCP's September update, the new licensing scheme is likely to include high-street cosmetic treatments which can cause serious harm when not carried out correctly or in a safe environment. "The scheme must at least cover injectable toxins, dermal fillers, vitamin infusions, platelet-rich plasma replacement therapy, cogs and threads, cryolipolysis, sclerotherapy, invasive chemical peels, a range of laser and light procedures and hair restoration surgery," the update continued.
