The new Health and Care Act 2022 gives the government the power to introduce a licensing scheme for practitioners working in the aesthetics industry. Although it’s not clear what this scheme will look like or when it’ll be introduced exactly, it’s going to redefine the way we work.
The Joint Council for Cosmetic Practitioners (JCCP) has urged all practitioners working in the industry to be prepared for the changes by updating their qualifications. For those hoping to enter the industry, starting with a course like the Qualifi Level 4, 5 & 7 course is the best way to future-proof your career.
If you don’t come from a medical background you can still become a master of aesthetics with the Qualifi Level 4, 5 & 7 course. As the most comprehensive course on the market, each level will prepare you with the skills and knowledge you need to work in the industry.
