Level 7 HEE - THE FACTS

Many people will have read about aesthetic guidelines introduced by Health Education England and may feel confused by them.

There are currently no regulations imposed for practitioners or training academies but guidelines covering the expected standard of practice were issued by HEE in 2015.  These guidelines recommended that going forward, trainers were to teach at level 7 (equivalent of masters level) and practitioners were to practice at level 7 standard.

Please note this is not a mandatory requirement and neither the Department of Health or government have stated any intention to make this compulsory at any time in the future.

Anyone seeking training in toxin and fillers should be aware that they do not have to obtain a level 7 qualification in order to practice but should locate a trainer with enough experience and knowledge to provide them with the skill and understanding to competently treat clients, provide sufficient after care and respond adequately to complications.

Delegates can be assured all training at Facethetics is delivered to the highest standards. Although there is no mandatory requirement for Level 7, as guidelines and recommendations are developed, Facethetics Training will be developing our own materials to meet these recommendations and continue to develop learning outcomes.
