Student Reviews

How our Level 7 Qualification works

Harley Academy trained Level 7 Certificate graduates are immediately recognisable and are highly sought-after for jobs in major clinic chains and busy independent clinics. But don’t take our word for it: see our testimonials!

Foundation Day

Guided by our expert trainers and educators, the Foundation Day is the perfect start to your career in Aesthetic Medicine, grounding you in best practices that you will keep throughout your life as an Aesthetics practitioner. 

The day covers the basics of injectable treatments for facial Aesthetic rejuvenation, including popular treatments using botox and dermal fillers.

Your Harley Academy Foundation Day Certificate enables you to gain insurance to practice and continue training. As part of your foundation course, you will receive a starter pack containing all the consumables you need to treat your first patients, as well as our ‘Good Practice Guide’, which answers all the tricky questions regarding prescribing, insurance and data protection.

Induction

The Induction Webinar is a 2-hour introduction to your course. The Student Support Team at Harley Academy run these interactive sessions every 6 weeks, allowing recently enrolled students to learn about the journey they will undertake for the Level 7, finishing with a live question and answer session to ensure complete understanding.

The Induction Webinar explains how to effectively tackle every aspect of your course, including the Foundation Day, Observation Days, Mentoring Sessions and your final Assessment. 

You’ll get tips on how to complete your Level 7 efficiently and effectively, and how to get the most out of your learning experience. The webinar will also be attended by a Harley Academy trainer, who will provide key insights into how to interact and network with our community, to help you make the most of your advanced course.

Observation Days

Observing treatments is a crucial part of the training requirements outlined in the 2016 HEE Guidelines. On our Level 7 Qualification, you will have two full Observation Days.

At your Observation Days, you will shadow our expert cosmetic practitioners in our Academy Clinic to watch live injectable treatments.

During your Observation Days you will watch a variety of injection techniques first hand and receive live instruction. Being in a small teaching group, you will have the time and space to have your questions answered.

Your Observation Days cover the full patient treatment cycle, covering consultation, treatment planning, injecting, aftercare, and post-treatment advice. In completing your Observation Days, you will have the awareness and knowledge to further build upon your practical skills during your supervised Mentoring Sessions.

Mentoring Sessions

Mentoring is a central part of the 2016 government training recommendations for delivery of cosmetic procedures. The Harley Academy Level 7 Certificate and our associated mentoring scheme is designed to ensure that you meet these guidelines.

Your Mentoring Sessions are the best way to gain hands-on practical skills and experience in Aesthetic injectables. The sessions are a bespoke 1:1 learning experience to enable  you to rapidly improve your fine motor abilities and client consultation skills.

You will see a minimum of 4 patients over each session and can attend as many times as required to fulfil your logbook requirements, and your sessions will help you:

• Rapidly improve your technique with tips and feedback from your mentor, focused on you and your particular strengths and learning needs.

• Learn an array of injection techniques by practising them first hand on a live patient.

Practise mixing the correct dosage for a range of indications of varying intensity covering both botox and dermal fillers, depending on your session.

Build your ability to adapt to your patient. By actively learning in a working clinic, you’ll see patients from every walk of life, of all ages, genders and ethnicities.

Grow your confidence by working with different Harley Academy mentors who will be able to give you unique perspectives and inspire you in new ways.

• Perform the full treatment of a live patient, including consultation, treatment planning, injecting, aftercare, and post-treatment advice.

    Future-proof. The Level 7 in Injectables for Aesthetic Medicine resulted from 2015 Health Education England Training Requirements. This is now the new lowest standard of training required by the Joint Council (JCCP) for delivery of botulinum toxins and dermal fillers.

    Fast Track Course Structure

    You can achieve the Level 7 Qualification as soon as you submit your logbook and complete two forms of assessment.

    Logbook:

    Samples of treatment cases delivered over the past three years or more. Samples must demonstrate evidence of patient consultation including pre-treatment and post-treatment care plans (in the form of clinical notes, taken from consultations).

    A written reference from an experienced practitioner to confirm that you have over three years experience, or have treated over 100 patients. The nominated experienced practitioner who provides the reference must also meet these requirements.

    Assessment:

    Coursework: 34 Short Answer Questions (written assignments of 100-600 words each).

    Observed Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE): A one-day final examination that allows you to demonstrate your practical knowledge and skills.

    What you learn on the Level 7 Certificate Fast Track

    The Fast Track programme allows you to demonstrate what you already know from your Aesthetics practice, and gain formal recognition for it.

    Included in the programme is access to our comprehensive digital learning suite of videos, quizzes and interactive materials, where you can top-up your knowledge. This online learning covers:

    Ethics and law in Aesthetic Medicine. Good medical practice is essential for a long-term career in Aesthetics. Gain an understanding of how to protect yourself and your patients legally and ethically.

    Cosmetic Psychology. Recognising healthy and unhealthy psychological drives is crucial for good practice in Aesthetic Medicine. Understand the signs of body dysmorphia and how to deal with patients who may need to be refused treatment.

    Skin Science. The skin is the foundation for all cosmetic procedures. In this eLearning module, you will learn the structure and function of both the skin and hair, as well as how they age over time. You will also learn to recognise skin conditions that contraindicate treatment, as well as referral pathways for patients suffering from skin-related concerns.

    If you’re interested in learning to manage skin conditions, clinical skin rejuvenation treatments are taught our Cosmetic Dermatology and Aesthetic Medicine Specialty Training programmes.

    Botulinum toxins & Dermal fillers. In addition to observing at least ten botulinum toxin treatments and performing ten yourself under close expert supervision, with this eLearning, you will deepen your understanding of the science of botulinum toxins and fillers. The module covers mechanisms of action, how to consult for a wide range of indications, an array of optimal injection techniques, and how to manage complications and side-effects.

    For more details consult the Level 7 specification that we co-authored with Industry Qualifications.
