About the Course

We designed the 7 Month ITEC Make-Up and Hair Course to fit the short timescale needs of people with family commitments or looking to make career changes, but who still want the reassurance of relevant and professional training. The ITEC qualification is also an added benefit for overseas students.

This course runs continuously over 7 months (Monday to Thursday) rather than according to academic term times from either Elstree Studios or Longcross. Consequently, it’s ideal for people with time constraints. Over the 7 months, students work through a comprehensive syllabus addressing the key make-up and hair techniques required by professional artists working in film, TV, stage and fashion. Please note, this 7 month course offers a condense method of training in comparison to the comprehensive 2 year BTEC Make-up and Hair Academy Course. For those taking short module courses you can not work towards your ITEC qualification.
