I just finished my level 4 Microblading course with Eleonora. I can honestly say she is the best tutor, she gives individual attention to every student and explains everything in detail. I did lots of research before starting this course, Ray Cochrane Beauty school looked like good option given the details I was provided when I called them and I’m glad I made the right decision. I am really happy to chose this beauty School, and Eleonora made me confident in Microblading. Thank you Eleonora 😊

I was very skeptical initially and did a lot research where to join for training. Microblading isn’t an easy task as it requires a lot of precision and understanding. But I can happily say joining Ray Cochrane beauty school was the best decision I made. They teach you from the basics and build you slowly over a span of few weeks to ensure you understand the technique thoroughly. Miss Eleonora is the best instructor she gives you individual attention and gives feedback on each stroke and really puts in effort to make you the best. She will only pass you if she thinks you’re capable which gave me confidence on their level of quality. My clients tell me I have the best technique - the most natural looking- from all that they have seen. Thank you Miss Eleonora and Ray Cochrane school♥️

I’ve had the best experience with Ray Cochrane Beauty School so far. Eleonora Is the most patient, highly professional, gracious and kind teacher, I feel I have truly learnt microblading from the best. She’s always been available to answer questions and put me at ease throughout the course. She is clearly extremely professional and has so much knowledge not just of microblading but in the beauty industry as a whole. I’m happy with the structure of the course and the equipment provided was amazing. I think the course is very good value for money. I highly recommend Ray Cochrane Beauty School and Eleonora to anyone looking to get into the beauty industry. Thank you so much and I hope to do more courses soon! X

  • 1 How will I be assessed during the Level 4 microblading course?

    To complete the ABT qualification, students must complete a series of assessments for each unit, verifying the student’s understanding and practical implementation of the knowledge and skills required to attain professional competence.  There are five course days over five weeks. After completing the initial five weeks and two case studies, you will gain the Accredited Beauty Therapy (ABT) qualification, which will allow you to acquire insurance to start practising by yourself or in a salon.  To complete the VTCT Level 4 Microblading course, students must produce evidence of a series of ten case studies on top of their existing two case studies. This is to be completed over three to four months after the five-week course to consolidate and demonstrate consistent applications of all the knowledge and practical skills in one place.  In total, this will amount to the required ten case studies. After completing your case studies (after four months), you will have your last two course days for assessments and tests. Case studies will be sent to the tutor for review, who will verify that best practice is being adhered to and review your progression in terms of skill level.  Note: Not all ten case studies need to be completed to be reviewed. You may send each case study to the tutor once you have completed each one. The practical assessments and tests (the last two course days) will always be held three to four months after the initial five course days.
