Botox courses that make a difference

Botox training is changing. Before we launched the UK’s first vocational level 7 qualification in Injectables for Aesthetic Medicine, there were only short, one day or weekend courses in botulinum toxins. Now, there are multiple centres offering our IQ Level 7 Certificate, and a renewed focus on increasing safety and transparency in the industry.

If you’re a doctor, dentist or nurse, you can help to improve training standards by training with us.

The course that’s right for you

Everyone is different, and different levels of training suit different kinds of people. You can become an outstanding Botox practitioner with a course that’s right for you.

When the government released official guidance on cosmetic training in 2015, we realised that there was a way to seriously improve standards in aesthetics training. We created a course that mapped every requirement to a deliverable outcome, and started running it. This was then accepted by Ofqual as meeting the new higher standard, and now it’s the UK’s first fully regulated Level 7 qualification.

However, the central place that we give to safety and evidence-based practice infuses our Foundation Training days as much as our regulated qualifications. Whether you’re committed to lifelong professional development or just curious about the field, we have a suitable Botox course for you

5 Benefits of Botox training

  1. Dictate your own hours
    Unlike NHS rotas, private aesthetic practice gives you the freedom to dictate when you work. This can be in the evenings and weekends around your GP or consultant practice, or 9-5 like a normal day job to replace shift work.
  2. Earn more
    It is widely-known that aesthetic medicine can be a lucrative career choice. With the average patient paying £210-470 per Botox treatment (1-3 areas) every 3 months, it only takes a couple of patients per week to add thousands to your income.
  3. Connect with your patients
    One of the nicest opportunities presented by private practice is the chance to give patients time and focus and build a lasting professional relationship that is mutually beneficial.
  4. Release your creativity
    Botox can be used for lower-face contouring, eyebrow lifting, and in conjunction with volumising fillers to create a variety of beautiful results. If you have an artistic side that is not nourished by clinical practice then Botox training is the perfect way to exercise your creativity.
  5. Keep learning
    Aesthetics is a young field. Every week new procedures and products emerge in the market.

Aesthetics is a world filled with hype, but with a solid enough foundation in the principles of facial ageing and the science of rejuvenation medicine you can discern sense from nonsense, and discover the exciting, new, evidence-based techniques.

Level 7 training in botulinum toxins

Since 2015, there’s been an enormous push for training courses in botulinum toxins (“Botox”) to raise the standard of their courses to a level 7.

According to Health Education England and the Joint Council of Cosmetic Practitioners, the minimum training requirements for delivery of botulinum toxin procedures now include:

  • A postgraduate/level 7 qualification
  • Observing 10 and treating 10 patients with Botox during clinical mentoring

To allow you to meet these requirements Harley Academy developed the UK’s first vocational level 7 qualification in Injectables for Aesthetic Medicine. This qualification is now being licensed out by other training centres and is spreading across the UK.

Level 7 alumni are highly employable. By passing our rigorous assessments they don’t just earn an impressive accreditation, but also demonstrate that they have the skills to inject independently to a high standard.

The full Level 7 qualification (L7Cert) in Injectables in Aesthetic Medicine involves four parts:

    How much exactly will the private mentoring with Harley training academy come up to?

    • Beth L. Swingler 4 months ago

      Hi ALice,
      Thanks for your comment. A minimum of 40 patient cases, roughly four sessions of private mentoring, are now included in the level 7 course, which also gives you a full qualification in theory and practice of Injectables. Owing to its popularity, we can no longer offer 1:1 mentoring to external learners not currently on the level 7 course.

      If you’ve already got some experience and you’re looking to top up your experience with specific procedures then I recommend the Advanced Workshops. These are small-group sessions with plenty of 1:1 feedback that will allow you to skill up quickly – in a similar way to normal 1:1 mentoring. These are priced individually so you just can book per day.

      Don’t hesitate to give us a call if you have further questions!

  8. Andrew 2 months ago

    Hi, I am a registered adult nurse and would like to do the foundation course with the aim to provide cosmetic Botox in a clinic very soon. Will I still be able to do this without a level 7 qualification? It appears to me that the HEE report are recommendations, therefore I will be able to practice even after the September 2018 date set by HEE. Obviously ALL practicing cosmetic aesthetics without level 7 won’t just stop their work? Please can you clear this up for me.

    Thank you

    Is this course still running? I am interested in plastics and this would be a good place to start before I re-join university next year for my nursing masters course.
