Acrylic Nail Course-VTCT Level 2 award

from Allen & Walden, Kent College of Beauty Therapy


Attend our Acrylic nails course (AB20262) at our centre in Kent and you will be in a small group learning  from a highly experienced lecturer. The Acrylic / Gel Nails course runs over two sessions after which you practice at home then return for a third session of assessment. Successful completion of this course will result in achievement of a internationally recognised qualification (NVQ/VRQ). We only offer the NVQ/VRQ as these qualifications are widely recognised by employers looking for skilled therapists in the beauty industry.

  • Those wishing to work in a salon, spa or cruise ship - minimum requirements are NVQ/VRQ Levels 2 or 3.
  • Those wishing to open their own high street premises.
  • Those wishing to open accounts with premium product suppliers.
Externally accredited qualifications greatly increase your chances of gaining employment. NVQ/VRQ  qualifications indicate to an employer that you are able to perform treatments competently and within a commercially acceptable time. It is fast becoming mandatory that local councils require you to hold an NVQ/VRQ qualification in order to issue you with a Special Treatments Licence.
