Postgraduate Education

The BSAEA offers various learning opportunities for members and the wider Aesthetic Medicine community.

  1. Level 3 Award in Education and Training

Our Level 3 Award in Education and Training (L3AET) is the first and only Aesthetics specific teaching qualification compliant with Further Education and Awarding Organisation requirements, enabling practitioners to achieve a formal teaching qualification in line with their training academy requirements.

Aesthetics is a practical subject and it is easy to think that a trainer can just turn up and dispense their knowledge and expertise to learners. Whilst there are some brilliant trainers out there we have all attended courses or sessions that are less effective. If you start to think about why this is then you will often find that the fundamentals of teaching have not been adhered to. For instance was the venue appropriate? Were you asked what you wanted from the course or session? If so where these addressed? Did the teacher manage the group well? Or did you get frustrated by one student dominating the session? Was there anything about the course that made you uncomfortable?

If you were teaching a course, did you get any pre course information from the training body? Did you understand your role and responsibilities? Or indeed your liabilities? When you examine your thoughts about teaching and learning you begin to ask more questions about both.  

This course aims to make you a better teacher and consider what is required to pass your knowledge on to the next generation of aesthetic clinicians.  

This course does require some commitment but we hope it will improve your generic teaching skills and increase your awareness of what you need to develop as a successful teacher.

Many teaching organisations will look for people who have some qualifications as well as subject knowledge. In an increasingly competitive environment a teaching qualification may give you an advantage as an Aesthetic Trainer.
