Professional Make Up Johannesburg

Calling Prospective Make Up Artists in Johannesburg

Today, there are not many women who don’t wear make up regularly, especially those who form part of Johannesburg’s professional workforce. Whether one likes it or not, people are still largely judged by their appearance, at least to some degree.

Make Up – an Integral Part of Good Grooming

Professional people want to make that most important good first impression. Good grooming (inclusive of tastefully, well-applied make up) is as important as one’s garments and accessories in Johannesburg’s competitive work environment. Additionally, people look as great as they feel, so looking good or better – with a little cosmetic assistance – is just the ticket.

Ever Growing Trend and Demand

Irrespective of varying economic conditions, the beauty industry has shown exponential on-going growth globally, a trend which seems set to continue for a long time. This has an impact on beauticians, therapists, dermatologists, hairstylists, cosmetic practitioners, aestheticians and make up artists.

Concurrently, the demand for suitably qualified professional practitioners in the beauty and make up field continues to grow too, particularly in a vibrant, economically active city such as Johannesburg, the hub of South African business activities and consumer spending.

Johannesburg is also the location of our prestigious beauty, make up design and special effects school, which celebrates its 50th birthday this year, making our academy the longest standing institution of its kind in the country.

Here, the fact that we train students to achieve suitable qualifications has been an integral part of our success story, since our founding in1965. Prospective make up artists should take note that we’re promoting our customised airbrushing course during July 2015.

What are Suitable Qualifications?

Having a qualification means that you have studied specific course material and successfully completed tests, examinations and, if applicable, practical modules, all of which measure results, knowledge and competence to become involved in working within the chosen field.

A suitable qualification emphasises that the course material and examinations are geared towards a specific or niche field.

Furthermore, the qualification should be recognised and accredited by a respected, credible body, which has as its goal the setting of benchmark industry standards, ethics and regulations, while growing and improving the subject, practice or field.

Recognised Accreditation Bodies

Our beauty and make up design school is accredited by all the national and international bodies which are meaningful.

• National – Services SETA – qualifications are aligned with the SAQA (South African Qualifications Authority).
• International – there are three important international organisations, the first being:-
o CIDESCO International (Zurich) – we are the only CIDESCO accredited make up school in South Africa. CIDESCO enjoys recognition in more than 33 global countries across 5 continents, and boasts more than 130 beauty schools, which offer tuition to their international standards worldwide.
o ITEC (UK) – recognised by 38 plus countries worldwide and their qualification equips graduates to work anywhere in the world.
o City & Guilds (London) – the biggest and most highly regarded professional awarding organisation.

What This Means

Learners who graduate at our Johannesburg academy and are awarded recognition, accreditation and memberships of these erudite bodies have a huge head start in the beauty and make up fields, are set for a professional career in the discipline of their choice and can choose to work wherever they like, in any part of the world or at home, in South Africa.
