RPEL FASTRACK ROUTE TO QUALIFICATION

The 2022 amendment to Health and Care Bill gives 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 non-surgical cosmetic 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).

WHAT OUR STUDENTS HAVE TO SAY

Something that really appealed to me and worked in my favour was the flexibility afforded by doing this course exclusively online. This meant I could plan my own work and study time and I was able to complete the Level 7 qualification at a pace that suited me, my work and my family needs. Perfect for me as a busy working mum of three. This online level 7 qualification in injectables was a great way for me to advance my practice and achieve a recognised academic qualification. I really enjoyed the content. The topics were totally relevant and of interest to my practice as an aesthetic injector.  The platform coordinators were easily contactable, although personally, I found everything laid out clearly and I completed the process with ease.

At last a flexible route to have my prior learning, existing knowledge and skills recognised and validated by a regulated and approved training provider. I feel more confident knowing that my competence has been assessed and validated by a regulated and approved training provider. The resources were just great and I actually enjoyed the assessment process and doing my bit in researching the up-to-date evidence base. This re-enforced the importance to look to the evidence to inform any of our clinical practice. Sometimes we dont know, what we dont know! Thank you to the MAP-IQ assessors for their support and guidance throughout the process.

I found the MAP-IQ process very supportive and straightforward. I used the RPEL route and found the pathway thorough. The online format made the whole process accessible and flexible and the staff members (administrating and supporting) were all brilliant.

I recently completed the Level 7 PGDip in Clinical Aesthetics with MAP-IQ. I found this course through speaking to Jeremy, Jane and Caitlin at the CCR in London and since speaking with them I didn’t look elsewhere. I found the whole team very approachable and understanding of my educational needs. The whole process was easy to follow and we had guidance from start to finish. This course is absolutely perfect for aesthetic practitioners like myself who have paid thousands out already for practical CPD courses and currently working in aesthetics. The mapping process which allows the team to assess where you are in your career and the previous studies you have taken means you can skip the parts you have already done elsewhere. This means you can focus on the parts you do need to get you up to level 7. Through my experience and studies I managed to go straight to the third stage of the course - the written exam and then onto an OSCE. Many medical or dental professionals like myself have taken these kind of examinations before but they all seem to be a long time ago. This mean nerves! But the team don’t allow your nerves to get the better of you, they were there every step of the way. I would 100% recommended this course to anyone and I have already done so to many. I am actually a trainer in aesthetics myself for CPD accredited courses and guess where all my students are now coming for their level 7!
