Unique new three-course level 3 to 4 progression framework to aesthetics


Following recent reviews of the sector, and the related release of a number of new and important cosmetic training guidelines from the likes of HEE, CPSA and the JCCP, times have now changed, and standards once again need to be raised.


As the leading training provider in the UK, Cosmetic Couture’s highly skilled and experienced team have worked closely with Industry Qualifications (IQ) to address this need.


Together they have now produced a unique and bespoke Level 3 qualification that is specifically tailored to aesthetic practice – and have removed many of the beauty units that no longer relevant to an aesthetic practitioner.


In another first, this new course is being offered alongside a recognised first aid qualification to ensure that all graduates are sufficiently equipped to enter the industry and deliver treatments consistently and safely.


Completion of this essential course will lead to access to the IQ Verify Level 4 in Skin Rejuvenation – the only certification that has been developed in alignment with an international standard and all of the latest cosmetic guidelines.


We believe that this Level 3 to 4 progression route will raise the bar and standards for those entering the aesthetics industry with no medical background.


Three-Part Progression Framework (L3-4)


Part One

IQ Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work


Part Two

IQ Level 3 Certificate in Principles of Cosmetic Procedures for Aesthetic Practitioners (Cosmetic Couture)


Part Three

IQ Verify Level 4 in Skin Rejuvenation Techniques for Aesthetic Practitioners




There are currently NO COURSES in injectables aesthetics for non-medics which reach Level 7.

There are no awarding bodies offering level 7 qualifications for non-medics in injectables.

IQ Verify Skin Rejuvenation Level 4 – 7 is an officially recognised certification offered by Cosmetic Couture.

We also offer eLearning material for non-medics in injectables training, meeting the requirements of Level 7 Qualifications.

Whilst this is not a certification, we are committed to ensuring that our students have access to the highest calibre training materials to support their learning with Cosmetic Couture. Think of it as buying the aesthetic injectables Level 7 textbook.

In the absence of an approved Level 7 qualification for non-medics, we view this as a vital step towards improving client safety through training.
