Highly Commended

Learna Limited

As a Joint Council of Cosmetic Practitioner (JCCP) approved educational provider, Learna has developed two approved pathways for aesthetic practitioners looking to register with the JCCP for both Botulinum Toxin and dermal filler treatments:

  • a Level 7 Postgraduate Certificate (PGCert) with an assessment of clinical practice validated by the University of South Wales

and for the more experienced practitioner;

  • the JCCP Fast-track assessment (FTA); a theoretical examination with an assessment of clinical practice

The JCCP Fast-track assessment is a unique and innovative pathway for practitioners to exhibit their prioritization of public protection and safety while;

  • demonstrating an equivalent level of knowledge, skill and care as someone who's undertaken a regulated qualification
  • and allow them to apply for JCCP registration without having to spend the time and money on a postgraduate qualification.

Learna is the only approved educational provider to deliver the JCCP FTA and continues to support the promotion of enhancing the professional knowledge underpinning practice in cosmetic and aesthetic medicine.
