Mentoring is a central part of Health Education England (HEE) 2015 Government Guidance for delivery of medical aesthetic procedures. These recommendations require you to see 40 patients as part of your training. As a result, the SEBASTIAN ROSE MEDICAL AESTHETICS TRAINING ACADEMY FOUNDATION COURSES, along with our MENTORING PROGRAMMES, are specifically designed to help you meet these guidelines. Our FULL INTENSIVE MENTORSHIP PROGRAMME is designed for you to treat 40 clients and thereby fulfil the criteria set by the government, transforming you from a novice clinician to a recognised, verified, experienced aesthetic practitioner.
ABOUT THIS PROGRAMME
Our intensive MENTORSHIP PROGRAMME is specifically designed to help you perfect the knowledge and skills learned on your FOUNDATION COURSE(S) whilst enabling you to meet the minimum standards for independent practice as set out by Health Education England (HEE) Government Guidelines: Qualification requirements for delivery of cosmetic procedures: Non-surgical cosmetic interventions (2015). You will treat all areas and conditions covered in your foundation course(s), observing 20 client treatments and then performing 20 client treatments under direct supervision, thus meeting HEE requirements.
We offer flexible timings so you are able to complete the mentorship programme around your current commitments, with the ability to ‘fast-track’ or take the programme at a pace to suit you (over a maximum of six months). You can choose to complete your mentorship as quickly as within 5 full days or 10 half-days, or work through the programme flexibly, attending the clinic once a week over five weeks.
Practising your newly acquired skills on real clients in a real clinic allows you to reflect and improve upon your consultation skills and fine motor abilities, transforming you from a novice practitioner to an experienced medical aesthetic clinician.
If you want to be able to independently practice – whether as part of your own business, or working in an established clinic – both dermal fillers (DFs) and B0T0X, this means a minimum of observing 20 client treatments, and treating 20 clients (a total of 40 clients) on top of any initial course / certification: therefore a mentorship programme such as our FULL MENTORSHIP PROGRAMME is strongly recommended.
If you are new to medical aesthetics, and / or thinking of starting your career, our FULL CAREER ACCELERATOR programme ensures that you meet all of HEE requirements, whilst taking you from B0T0X & DERMAL FILLER FOUNDATION all the way to competent, experienced practitioner in less than 2 weeks.
Our FULL MENTORSHIP PROGRAMME is recommended for those who have undertaken initial training / certification but do not have any – or much – clinical experience.
