MATA are thrilled to announce we are launching a brand new suite of Level 5 Laser and Light Based Therapy qualifications and Level 7 Postgraduate Certificate in the Principles and Practice of Clinical Injectable Therapies (Botulinum Toxin and Dermal Fillers) this month!
Based on the recommendations in the HEE report, our exciting new aesthetics qualifications are awarded by EduQual and also endorsed by an Ofqual-recognised awarding organisation. MATA training is comprised of blended-learning including theory modules studied on our university-standard online virtual learning environment (VLE), practical training on many volunteer patients provided for maximum hands-on experience, clinical assessments, completion of a log book of treatments plus written examinations. The suit of MATA qualifications cover Botulinum and Toxin, Dermal Fillers at level 7, Laser Tattoo Removal, Laser Hair Reduction, Laser Pigmentation Reduction, Laser Vascular Reduction and more at level 5.
As the aesthetics and cosmetic surgery industry continues to boom, over recent years there has been concern that there is not enough regulation in this field, particularly when it comes to injectable treatments such as Botox and Dermal Fillers due to the complications that can arise.
A need for improved education and training in this sector as highlighted by the Keogh report is the reason that MATA founder, Mr. Faz Zavahir launched the aesthetics training academy, particularly as he found that he had to travel worldwide to get the ‘hands-on’ training required when he was learning these skills.
Mr. Zavahir says “I’m very pleased we are able to offer an entire suite of qualifications and courses from which learners can choose to meet their own training needs – all within one academy. Ensuring our qualifications reflect the latest HEE guidelines was vital, but we also want to ensure our qualifications and courses are open to those wanting to learn and train to a high standard. Our Level 5 and Level 7 qualifications are demanding, expecting high standards in clinical knowledge and skills, but they are also immensely rewarding in both personal and professional development. Only by developing qualifications and courses that offer competence based training will this sector see an improvement in standards of care and patient safety.”
