Why train with us?

Allison Roberts

Allison Roberts botox training

Besides being a successful and highly-regarded practitioner Allison is also a great teacher with a long history of mentoring.

Allison creates a friendly, relaxed and interactive learning environment that really involves her students and helps them to absorb the courses well.

Allison is a board advisor to the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses.

“The presentation was pitched at just the right level. Allison is very professional with first class teaching skills, she gives you confidence during the live procedures and feedback on ways to improve your technique.”

“Allison has so much knowledge and gets it across allowing time for questions and discussion.”

“Allison’s knowledge and patience are second to none, very professional.”

Small training groups

It’s very important to train in small groups. Our groups never exceed three trainees.

This allows for a much more personal aesthetics training experience where you can really interact, ask questions and discuss as the course progresses. It’s also very important to get the right amount of time for supervised practice with the models, something that’s often lacking with larger groups.


“I would definitely recommend this course to others. I feel because it was a small group I felt involved and got to practice in everything. It felt personal.”

“I enjoyed the small learning group, my fellow trainee said that she thought it felt quite personal and I agree. I felt like I got so much more out of the class.”

Train in a working clinic

Your aesthetics training and practicals will take place in our beautiful clinic in Barnsley, South Yorkshire where you can get a real feel for a successful working environment. Everything needed for illustration, discussion and practical use is immediately at hand.


“It was a brilliant learning environment to be in.”

“Excellent first day of the four-day course. Made welcome, beautiful and comfortable venue.”

Accommodation included

We include accommodation with freshly-cooked breakfast at the excellent Holiday Inn, Barnsley. Here you can relax, get into the zone and discuss your training with your fellow students over breakfast or dinner without the disractions and duties of everyday life.

Hotel guests can unwind in the on-site Bannatynes Health Club with its spa and indoor pool. There’s a bar and a restaurant serving famous Barnsley chops and other local specialties.

The hotel is a 7 minute taxi ride (provided free) from our training clinic.



“Lovely welcoming atmosphere with comfortable and spacious rooms. Friendly staff who were able to answer any queries. Would highly recommend this hotel.”

Our treatment courses

  • Botox
  • Dermal Fillers
  • Lip Augmentation
  • Chemical Peels
  • Microneedling

These courses are all CPD certified and approved by Hamilton Fraser Cosmetic Insurance.

Botox and fillers are becoming more and more mainstream every year, the biggest growth area being with younger clients.

Chemical peels are an absolute mainstay of a successful aesthetics practice. Again the main area of growth is in young people for whom we can make a dramatic change in skin condition. (A very pleasing thing to be able to do.)

Our microneedling course focuses on vertical powered microneedling rather than rollers. This is a vastly superior treatment as the needle depth can be altered to suit the different thicknesses of skin and the head itself is much better suited to reaching areas of the face that are harder to get to.

We include a cordless powered needling device and ten heads within the cost of your course.

 These are the five main treatments a fully-rounded aesthetics practitioner should offer. With these treatments you’ll be able to offer a solution for almost all the issues your clients present.

“The learning environment you’ve created is brilliant. I love that you encourage discussion and student interaction. I didn’t feel nervous or silly to ask any questions.”

Our Practice Management course

Born out of the realisation that people were being trained in Medical Aesthetics but were given no guidance whatsoever on how to run a practice or a business our Practice Management course provides our students with an excellent blueprint on how to get started and flourish in this field.

Included in this course are many things you would normally have to learn by trial and error including two very important aspects of marketing your practice that caused a dramatic rise in the number of new clients we attract.

This course aims to fast-track you past the usual slow learning process, connect you to the right people and give you the confidence to become the practitioner you want to be.

Included in this course are:

  • The field of medical aesthetics
  • Transition from your current job
  • Support
  • Your approach to your clients
  • Client care
  • Reputation
  • Dealing with problems
  • Premises
  • Pricing
  • Prescriptions
  • Becoming a prescriber
  • Ordering
  • Consultation
  • Keeping records
  • Insurance
  • Complaints
  • Your accountant
  • VAT
  • Marketing
  • Your website
  • Starting up
  • Your business plan
  • Avoiding the early pitfalls
  • Growing your practice

This course is given by Don McCarron.

“Don certainly knew what he was talking about and managed to put his teaching of what I would usually find very complicated across in an uncomplicated way. The training support and advice was greatly appreciated.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can train to be an Aesthetics Practitioner?

Doctors, nurses, dentists, dental hygienists and dental nurses can take all of our courses.

Who will my trainer be?

Your trainer will be Allison McCarron.

Allison is Harley Street trained in advanced Botulinum Toxin and dermal filler techniques, a Board Advisor with the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses and a very successful aesthetics practitioner. Allison is also a great teacher with a long history of mentoring.

Allison creates a friendly, informal and interactive learning environment that really involves her students and helps them to absorb the courses well.

Why are the training groups so small?

We keep our training groups small for two reasons:

Firstly, it’s our experience that students in small groups are much more likely to interact both with Allison and each other. This creates a much better learning environment where we can be sure that our students are happy with, and have understood, each section of the course before moving on.

Secondly, it’s of the utmost importance that students feel they have had enough hands-on experience with the models. This can be difficult with larger groups.

Why train in a working clinic?

Training in a working clinic allows our students to get a feel for a successful working environment. It’s also important that everything needed for illustration, discussion and practical use is immediately to hand.

Our training takes place in beautiful surroundings at our busy clinic in Barnsley, South Yorkshire.


What kind of accreditation do the courses carry?

All of our treatment courses are CPD certified and approved by Hamilton Fraser Cosmetic Insurance.

Why should I take the Six Course Package

Our Six Course Package includes:

  • Botox
  • Dermal Fillers
  • Lip Augmentation
  • Chemical Peels
  • Microneedling
  • Medical Aesthetics Practice Management

This package allows you to qualify in the five core treatments every rounded aesthetics practitioner should have and gain a huge amount of invaluable knowledge in practice management in one long weekend. It also provides an £800 saving over paying for the courses individually.

You can pay for our Six Course Package in 4 instalments over a year meaning you can be treating clients in all five treatments while you pay for your courses.

We believe our Six Course Package is the best and most affordable way to become a complete Aesthetics Practitioner.


Can I spread the cost of the Six Course Package?

Yes. The cost of the Six Course Package can be spread in 4 interest-free payments.

9 months after the course



Will I be ready to begin treating clients?

Yes. Our courses are designed to prepare you to begin treating clients straight away.

Do I need to be a prescriber?

No. Most aesthetic practitioners aren’t prescribers, other people do their prescribing for them.

Allison prescribes for several practitioners local to our clinics. The BACN keeps a list of willing prescribers which is searchable by area.

It’s also worth noting that only toxins and saline need to be acquired on prescription. Fillers, peels and microneedling supplies can be bought freely.

What is the purpose of the Practice Management course?

There’s no reason why a medical professional should know how to run a practice or a business and yet so many who are training in aesthetic treatments are being expected to do just that.

We offer the benefit of our experience in building a thriving aesthetics practice from scratch and cover a comprehensive range of subjects including:

  • The field of medical aesthetics
  • Transition from your current job
  • Support
  • Your approach to your clients
  • Client care
  • Reputation
  • Dealing with problems
  • Premises
  • Pricing
  • Prescriptions
  • Becoming a prescriber
  • Ordering
  • Consultation
  • Keeping records
  • Insurance
  • Complaints
  • Your accountant
  • VAT
  • Marketing
  • Your website
  • Starting up
  • Your business plan
  • Avoiding the early pitfalls
  • Growing your practice

This way we not only qualify you to practice but show you how to make a success of your practice too.

I'm travelling from outside of the area. What about accommodation?

Hotel accommodation with breakfast is provided free of charge to students travelling from outside of the area.

The excellent Holiday Inn is a short taxi ride (provided free by us) from our training clinic.

Do I need to bring models for my practicals?

No. We provide all of the models for demonstrations and the student live procedures.

Will I get any support after training?

Yes. We love our students to stay in touch with us and with each other.

All of our students are given our mobile numbers and both Allison and Don are always available for help and advice.

In addition to this we have our private Facebook group where practitioners who qualify with us can share news, tips, advice and experiences. This really helps new practitioners to grow in knowledge and confidence.

Are all training courses the same?

Definitely not. There are some important considerations.

  1. Who is my trainer?

Is your trainer a working practitioner with everyday experience of clients, new treatments and techniques?

Is your trainer an experienced mentor, friendly and approachable?


  1. What size are the training groups?

Are the training groups small enough for you to feel confident to engage properly with your trainer and ask questions?

Are the training groups small enough for you to get sufficient practice with the models?


  1. Does the theory training take place live on the day?

It seems unbelievable but there are some courses available that expect you to learn the theory at home on your own and have a quick “refresh” session on the day before going straight on to injecting the models.

There’s so much more to be gained from a live delivery of the theory along with chatting and interacting with your trainer.


  1. Are the courses CPD certified?

CPD certification means that the course has reached CPD’s standards in the delivery of the training.

If the course isn’t CPD certified there is probably a good reason. This can often be that the theory is not delivered live to save time or that the trainer is not properly qualified.


  1. Do the courses take place in a successful working clinic?

In a working clinic you have everything to hand for illustration and demonstration. It also helps you to get a good feel for how your clinic can be.


  1. Is hotel accommodation included in the price?

This can make a big difference to overall cost and takes the risk out of trying to choose a good hotel.


  1. Can I spread the cost?

Spreading the cost really helps to make the courses affordable and gives you the opportunity to pay for them from the profit you make doing treatments.


  1. Can I save time and money by grouping courses?

It’s entirely possible to save time and money without sacrificing any quality when grouping courses together.

There are several elements of learning that appear in more than one course (for instance we learn about skin-aging in Botox, Dermal Fillers, Microneedling and Peels and we learn about Hyaluronic Acid fillers in Dermal Fillers and Lip Augmentation). By grouping courses together over 2,3 or 4 days we can eliminate the need for repetition.

This is how we can offer an £800 saving on our Six Course Package.


  1. Is there a Practice Management course?

We believe this is very important.

Knowing how to treat clients is one thing, knowing how to run a thriving practice is another thing entirely.


  1. Are models for the practicals provided?

Being let down by your model can ruin your training. It’s always best if your trainers supply the models.


  1. Is any post-training support offered?

It’s not enough to qualify a new practitioner and push them out of the door. Especially in the early months you need to feel that you have someone to support you 24/7 and answer your questions.

The most important thing about training is not just getting a certificate, it’s becoming competent and confident enough to begin treating clients, move forward and thrive in this field.

Do I need the Level 7 qualification?

No. Despite what many people involved in delivering the course would like you to think Level 7 is purely academic and unnecessary.
