We are a unique private centre in Rochester in Kent, easily accessible if you are travelling from all over Kent London, parts of Essex and East Sussex.  We are fully private training provider yet offer nationally recognised VTCT qualifications. Without the constraints of a funded route, we are able to offer you far more flexibility within your qualification, better subject choices and more flexible timetables.

Most private centres offer their adult learners Accredited courses, these courses may gain you a certificate, but they are not classed as a qualification and may hold you back from getting the dream job you are after or from progressing onto more advanced courses in the future.

I have had the best experience at Allen and Walden, I have been training with the college for over a year now doing different courses and I couldn’t be more confident. Allen and Walden offer continuous support even after your training. I would highly recommend to anyone that want to persue their dreams in the beauty industry!!

Training is our focus we are not a salon running a few short courses as a side-line. You will receive first-class training back up and support during your time with us. We will continue to be on hand to you for advice and support once you have completed your training.
