RPEL FASTRACK ROUTE TO QUALIFICATION
In March 2022 the UK government announced its intention introduce a licensing scheme for non-surgical cosmetic procedures. The recent amendment to Health and Care Bill will give the health secretary powers to introduce a licensing scheme for all practitioners who offer non-surgical cosmetic procedures. The licensing scheme aims to introduce a range of standards including standardised education and training for all practitioners regardless of professional background.
RECOGNITION OF PRIOR EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING (RPEL):
MAP-IQ ‘s aim is to support experienced aesthetic practitioners to achieve a regulated qualification through an RPEL assessment route. MAP-IQ is the only OFQUAL regulated and JCCP approved assessment centre dedicated solely to the recognition of prior experiential learning in clinical aesthetics. Practitioners who meet the VTCT and MAP-IQ RPEL entry requirements are able to proceed straight to assessment without the need to repeat previous academic study and or practical skill training.
Successful completion of the a three stage online assessment route will allow practitioners to formally evidence competence to practice in clinical aesthetic injectable practice. Practitioners will graduate with an OFQUAL regulated and industry approved Level 7 Diploma in Clinical Aesthetics and be entitled to use the following post nominals – PgDip(Aes).
