RPEL FASTRACK ROUTE TO QUALIFICATION
The cosmetic practice amendment to the Health and Care Bill (2022) 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 regulated and experienced non-surgical cosmetic practitioners to achieve a regulated qualification through an RPEL assessment route. MAP-IQ is the only OFQUAL regulated, VTCT accredited 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 comparable academic study and or practical skill training.
Practitioners will graduate with a VTCT (ITEC) Level 7 Diploma in Clinical Aesthetics and be entitled to use the following post nominals – PgDip(Aes).
