Created in line with industry requirements this course follows the ITEC Level 3 Diploma in Fashion and Specialised Make-up for Film, TV and Theatre. These qualifications are offered to students so they will complete the course with our own highly recognised certificate of attendance and subjects covered, but also the validation of an awarding body, making sure that standards are always current and acceptable within the industry. Throughout the course students will be assessed internally and externally.
The course is taught by experienced and established industry professionals, assessors and educators who only teach subjects appropriate to their specialist field. By having lecturers who are actively working within the industry ensures students are taught the most up to date techniques and are using the most current products.
We encourage our students to use the photographic studio to build a portfolio that supports their cv, it is created with the guidance of lecturers and is designed to show a variety of make-up and hair skills that the individual is capable of producing.
With the use of our photographic studios students are able to view their make-up and hair work on camera which is projected to a High Definition screen.
The overall aim of this course is to create successful hair and make-up artists who are not only highly skilled and diverse in their practical abilities but can interpret what is required on a production.

This ITEC course is structured in the following way
This consists of demonstrations and moves swiftly into hands- on practical training, continuing throughout the course with our lecturers offering guidance, enabling the student to acquire the skills needed in the professional make-up and hair industry. As always, great emphasis is put on speed and accuracy to high definition standard. Internal certification is by Brushstroke, which the student only gains once they have completed every unit to the satisfaction of the course tutor.
The ITEC Level 3 diploma in Fashion, Theatre and Media Make-up runs alongside the Nine Month Professional Make-up and Hair course. Supplementary classes offered to students to assist with the preparation of the ITEC theoretical and practical examinations. ITEC requires students to build two portfolios the first consisting of 5 looks which must be natural, mature (50 plus), male, ethnic and red Carpet. These 5 looks are covered in depth, including before and after photos, client consultation and reflective practice. The second portfolio includes 30 looks which should be a mix of your work show casing all of your make-up skills. ITEC issues guidelines on what to expect within this portfolio, however there is flexibility within the list.
Induction for Brushstroke courses is effectively reversed, whereby the prospective student/parent/ guardian ensure suitability for a course along with our decision. Once you have discussed your requirements with a senior member of staff, preferably at one of our informal interviews or in detail over the telephone we will then write to you confirming our acceptance of you on your chosen course.
All ages attend our courses and are suitable for school leavers aged 16+ to either continue their education and work towards either a BTEC or ITEC Qualification. We look closely at the suitability of younger students ensuring that they are ready to train with us. There is no specific qualification requirement; although certain qualifications/ work experience can be beneficial to students and the merits of these are assessed at the induction stage.
