Press Release 15 - JCCP Announces First Wave of Approved Education and Training Provider Organisations


Press Release 15- Joint Council for Cosmetic Practitioners (JCCP) – Announces First Wave of Approved Education and Training Provider Organisations



The JCCP has achieved full accreditation from the Professional Standards Authority (PSA) and is a registered UK Charity. The JCCP also has an MoU with the GMC and others are in development with other professional statutory regulators with the aim of sharing education, training and practice standards and public protection fitness to practice procedures etc.


Since that time the JCCP has worked to create and design the Council in line with PSA standards and has recently published  new Education & Training Standards  &  Competency Framework for Cosmetic Practice’ that can be used by the JCCP to register practitioners and by Education and Training Providers to develop qualifications and education/training programmes that accord with the JCCP’s education and training standards & CPSA Practice Standards.


In January, 2018 the JCCP announced that it was working with three education and training provider organisations as ‘Test Sites’ in order to pilot the implementation of a review  process to provide assurance to the Council that its proposed Standards and process for the approval of ‘Education and Training Organisations’ were fit for purpose.

The JCCP is delighted to announce that formal approval has now been awarded to the following three Education and Training Provider Organisations.


The Harley Academy, London – for the delivery of the IQ approved Level 7 Certificate in Injectables for Aesthetic Medicine.

Northumbria University, Newcastle Upon Tyne – for the delivery of a Post Graduate Certificate in Professional Non-Surgical Aesthetic Practice (Modality: Toxins and fillers).

Sally Durant Aesthetic Education and Training, West Midlands – for the delivery of the CIBTAC Level 4 Certificate in Micro-Needling (CSDC03).


These education and training organisations will now be added to the JCCP Register of ‘Approved Education and Training Provider Organizations’  for the named programmes and qualifications cited above and will be entitled to display the JCCP charter marks in accordance with the JCCP protocol for the use of the same.


The JCCP has now launched its Register of Approved Education and Training Provider Organizations and now wishes to enter into discussion with other education and training providers who might wish to seek approval with the Council. Details of the ‘Standards to enter the JCCP Education and Training Providers Register’ (2018) and the Competency Framework may be viewed via the following weblink:
