A-training meets with MP for aesthetic qualifications push

10th March 2022


a-training, the organisation that developed the first Ofqual-recognised qualifications for both medic and non-medic aesthetic practitioners, has met with local MP Gareth Davies to push the case for regulated qualifications.

The meeting took place on 4 March 2022 at a-training’s clinic in Grantham, Nottinghamshire, just days after the government announced its intention to introduce a licensing regime for non-surgical cosmetic procedures such as Botox and fillers.

Gareth Davies, MP for Grantham and Stamford, was given a tour of a-training’s state-of-the-art facilities, and discussed the need for regulated qualifications in the industry with a-training clinic director, Chris Wade. 

a-training developed the Level 5 and Level 7 Certificates in Aesthetic Practice in 2019, and has been campaigning for achievement of the qualifications to be made a compulsory ‘licence to operate’ in the aesthetic industry. 

Chris Wade, said, ‘We were delighted to welcome Gareth Davies MP to our training clinic and to discuss the issues around regulation of the aesthetics industry. a-training supports the government’s own amendment on cosmetic procedures to the Health and Care Bill which proposes the licensing of aesthetic non-surgical cosmetic procedures. We believe the solution to this should be industry-led, and that the Level 7 Certificate in Aesthetic Practice would offer an effective and existing method of ensuring minimum standards of compliance with the industry’.
