Beauty Courses, CPD Courses, Semi-permanent Makeup
from Allen & Walden, Kent College of Beauty Therapy

Gain your prestigious Level 4 award in Micropigmentation and semi-permanent makeup with us and be trained by the leading trainer in the UK.

Learn all aspects of micropigmentation including the 2019 latest must have brows combi and ombre.

Whether or not you are already in the industry and need to upgrade your skills or would like to learn this subject from scratch, we can enable you to qualify in the only nationally recognised qualification VTCT Level 4.

Micropigmentation is now a very big market in the UK and there are many pop up training schools offering in house qualifications and often training is carried out in hotels and not a professional licensed clinical training centre.

We are a long established private college with over 30 years’ experience in the industry. All our courses are delivered by highly qualified, talented and experienced lecturers who are passionate about their work. We have trained many other Semi permanent makeup trainers in the UK and have students from all nationalities come to us to improve their knowledge and skills in all forms of semi permanent makeup.

Relevant First aid is also part of this course.

It is very important to make sure you have the right qualifications and the VTCT Level 4 diploma in Micropigmentation is a recognised qualification, both in the UK and Worldwide and is seen as the highest standard you can reach with certification.

More and more councils and local authorities are tightening up their requirements for their registration, and like with Laser and IPL Qualifications it will soon be mandatory for both licensing and insurance to hold a nationally recognised Level 4 qualification before you are able to practice micropigmentation of any kind.
