Level 4 Microblading

The Level 4 Microblading course provides you with everything you need to know from an educational perspective, in order to provide safe and effect treatments for your customers.


Microblading is a rapidly growing service within the beauty industry. It is an ancient form of tattooing that has been around for thousands of years and is believed to have originated in Asia. It is used as a form of semi-permanent make-up, where a small blade is used to implant pigment using fine incisions in the skin. The technique is also known as feathering or embroidery and when carried out correctly, results in a beautiful natural looking brow.

The Level 4 Microblading is to be completed over 12 weeks. Each unit will require a lot of self study from home – though everyone varies, we recommend that the online learning at home component will consist of 50-60 hours. We provide manuals and videos to assist this, and we are always available via email and dedicated Facebook groups.


Microblading (NVQ Level 4) is carried out onsite for 3 days. Please note… we aim to give the highest standard of training, if you feel you need more time or more practical training you can join more practical classes free of charge.


After completing your course you will need to come back to demonstrate your abilities in front of an ITEC examiner and complete an exam.




When you have successfully completed the course, you will receive a diploma certificate issued by us. This not only demonstrates your commitment to the training, but also allows you to obtain Public Liability insurance so you can start offering treatments to paying clients from home or mobile.
Once you have completed your assessment days you will also receive your VTCT qualification certificate (this can take up to 12 weeks to be released from the awarding body VTCT).

  • Aesthetic Clinic

  • Beauty Salon

  • Medi Spa

  • Running your own Aesthetic business

All courses are run as small groups (4/5 people) which allows plenty of opportunity to ask questions or seek further support if required. This also ensures that over the few days, you will have lots of models to practice on.

All of our tutors specialise in Aesthetics and have worked in the industry for years. Our college curriculum is based around moving into advanced skin treatments not just learning beauty facials.

All centres have the very latest equipment and products required to adhere to industry standards. We also have an on-going Support Team and a Facebook group available to answer any query you may have regarding your training with us.

Our diploma courses are suitable for complete beginners and do not require any prior learning to be able to train with us; many of our students are not beauty trained and are looking to start up a business in the industry. We welcome students of all abilities, whether you are looking to learn a new skill from scratch or currently working as a therapist and looking to refresh your knowledge of particular treatments.

Students will require a good command of spoken and written English to complete the VTCT qualification.
