How to use the Matrix Map

  1. Click here to view the Matrix Map. Choose your current position so if you’re a complete beginner, then start at the ‘Complete Beginner’ Station. If you’re an existing practitioner, start at the ‘Existing Practitioner’ Station and so on.

  2. Decide the line that you wish to take. Each line will take you to a Level 7 practitioner, but depending on the line you take will depend on the qualifications you pick up along the way.

  3. Find the Line you have chosen below and click the link to be taken to that package. Here you will find the cost, duration and pros and cons of each package.

  4. Once you are happy with the package you have chosen, you can purchase the package direct through our website, or you can fill in the form to book a day and time for one of our specialist team to give you a call and answer any questions you may have

Getting started in Aesthetics can be a bit of a minefield, so our easy-to-follow map will help you understand where you need to start and what you need to do, no matter what your current experience is. Each package will take you to a Level 7 practitioner which is currently the highest level of qualification there is and will help future-proof any money you spend now for any future regulation changes that may come into effect.

Complete Beginner

Pathway Line – The Pathway Line is probably our most popular route for complete beginners. The route will allow you to take benefit of the rules as they are now whilst preparing yourself for any future rule changes. With this package, you can get qualified in foundation filler and foundation Anti-Wrinkle in as little as 6 weeks. Once qualified, you will be able to get insurance and start working on the paying public. This means you can begin to perfect your skills whilst working towards your level 7 and earning money back on your investment along the way. Remember, the regulations are not in place yet, so we can only deal with the rules as they are now. The key to building a successful career in the Aesthetics industry is by being able to put your newly learnt skills to use. This way, if/when the regulations change, you will be in the strongest position to succeed as you will have hands-on work experience under your belt, and that will be just as important as having the level 7 qualification. If you’re serious about building a successful aesthetics business and you are looking to get started sooner rather than later, then the Pathway Line Package is the one for you.

Direct to Level 7 Route – If you are not in a rush to get started and prioritise the level 7 qualification over all else, then the Direct To Level 7 route may be for you. With this package, we will take your Journey to level 7 route through Ofqual Only registered courses until you reach your level 7 Qualification. This route can take up to 9 months, and the hands-on training will not come until later on in the course. Although you may feel like you are not wasting any money on this route on courses that may become insufficient when the rule changes come in, you will be limited on the real-world experience that you have at the end of the course. Although you will have your level 7 qualification, you will still need to build the confidence and experience that no classroom environment can teach you. As any good practitioner will tell you, you only know what you are doing once all the responsibility is solely on you. Similar to a driving test, you will have been taught how to inject, but you will then need to learn how to be a practitioner.

Existing Level 3 Therapist or Medic

Level 3 Beauty or Medic Line – As an already qualified level 3 beautician or If you come from a medical background then this route may be the one for you. As the rules currently stand, you can go straight onto our foundation courses and then work your way onto our advanced courses. The same as the pathway package above, you can begin to gain experience now and start to earn money now, all whilst working towards your level 7 qualification. The exact rules on the new regulations are still not fully clear, so until we get the exact guidance on what will be required then, it is still seen as the best route is to get your experience now and then move ahead with the level 7 training if/when the rule changes come into effect. As with all of our Journey  Level 7 Packages, we will start laying the foundations for your progression into the Level 7, but we will also start to build on your experience as well. This, like the pathway line above, is a fantastic route for anyone looking to get started now but is also planning for the future.

Direct to Level 7 Route – As with the package above for complete beginners, you can choose to take the direct route so you only gain the Ofqual registered courses, but as above, there are the cons of less real-world experience and a delay in when you can start to see a return on the money you have invested to be considered.

I have been to Matrix several times now to study Aesthetics with Natalie. Today I studied Sunekos skin boosters. As usual it was run to a very high standard. Excellent communication regarding booking etc. Friendly relaxed & professional atmosphere. Very clean rooms. The course left me confident to book in clients straight away. Thanks again Matrix team!

I am 54 and about to step into a different career path after nearly 10 years of being in the catering industry so the transition has been somewhat scary. First courses to take were the Brow Lamination and Brow, Shape and Design courses. I am so glad that I choose Matrix Hair. Beauty & Aesthetics Academy. Kayleigh for helping me in the outset and explaining the courses in depth, being so attentive and on-hand by email and phone and in person on the day. On arriving I was made to feel very welcome and throughout the day, everything was relaxed and flowed very well. My trainer Charlene was so warm and approachable. Very knowledgeable. She also gave loads of information about how to set up my new business and which apps and products I should buy. She has given me the correct tools and confidence to kick-start my new career in the beauty/aesthetics industry. I am so looking forward to starting this new career path and learning my other courses and 100% would highly recommend Matrix Academy. Thank you so Much Kind Regards Sharon xxx

Just completed a laser course with Gemma! Was an amazing 2 day course with online theory and tests , was so easy to locate all the information you needed for the online theory before the practical course ! Gemma was amazing at making sure we were completely prepared and confident with every step before we left to set off on our own and made us all feel very comfortable if we needed to ask any questions at all ! Charlene made it very easy to book on and was happy with any questions we had before and whilst attending the course! I previously attended another course with Charlene which was also amazing and is so helpful! Always such Lovely girls who work in their all so friendly and welcoming every time I’ve been !! Can’t wait for my next course ! Xxx

Such a variety of course’s, the staff are very welcoming and helpful. Will definitely be going back for future courses🤍

Existing Practitioner LineAs an existing practitioner, you may feel that the potential rule changes are unfair and you are having to spend money on retaking qualifications that you already have. After all, you have been running a successful clinic for years without incident. You follow all the best practices, and your clients are well looked after. But you probably agree that not all practitioners out there are the same as you and that the potential rule changes and new regulations will help clean up the industry, so like us, you probably feel that this is, overall, a good thing to be happening. You just don’t want to have to pay through the nose for it. That is where the Existing Practitioner line comes in. This route has been designed to get you to your level 7 qualification with minimal cost or downtime to your business. We will need to do an initial assessment of your current skills, this will help us keep the cost down on your level 7 assessment and help us understand what work is needed at an early stage. This will help us to plan your training and get you to where you want to be in the minimum amount of time. 

Matrix learners

Retraining of Basic Skills – This route is for anyone who may be missing some of the essential skills for the level 7 qualification. It may be some advanced training that is needed or some extra training in certain areas. There will be an extra cost, but addressing it now will mean that there should be fewer issues on the level 7 assessment day. Everyone has different training and different experiences, so this route will give us the chance to unify the skills of our learners and make sure everyone is where they need to be before starting the Level 5 and 7. Hopefully, making that part of the journey a lot more enjoyable

Existing Matrix Learner – As promised to any of our past learners, your very own route to level 7. If you have trained with us in any of our beginner packages, foundation or advanced courses, then you will qualify for the Golden Matrix Route. We will RPL your existing qualifications, and you will not need the assessment day as we know how well you’ve been trained, so we can guide you through to your Level 5 and 7. Of course, this route will be slightly cheaper and priority access will be granted to the course dates. This is not to exclude others but to reward our learners, whom we value dearly. If you’re not a Matrix Learner but would like to access the Matrix Route, then get in touch before the changes come in, and once you have trained with us, we can add you to the VIP List
