Practical Training Clinics – Our practical clinics is where you hone your skills while increasing your confidence. We have modelled the clinic to slowly introduce you to operating at a typical clinic speed. We do this through a time stepping programme where each clinic day reduces the time allowance per client from an hour in the beginning to thirty minutes by the third clinic. We also change the consultation process, at the beginning along with your mentor you perform the entire pre-consultation process, that includes, consent forms, medical and health history questionnaire and pre-treatment photos. By the third clinic, our aesthetic nurse performs the pre-consultation again mirroring the process in a typical aesthetics clinic. Our aesthetic nurse then leads the client into your treatment room where you then perform the typical treatment consultation process. Our teaching programme is unique in the aesthetics training sector has been formed through the understanding of what is required to produce competent, confident, aesthetic practitioners.

A comprehensive theory programme might be the cornerstone of our aesthetic medicine courses but practical hands-on training is the foundation. Training to a Level 7 standard produces competent practitioners furthermore our ability to train you on many evidence-based modalities takes you on a journey from injecter to a specialist in non-surgical aesthetics.
