Makeup Qualifications

AOFM’s international academies and courses are accredited by several of the world’s leading government-regulated accreditation and awarding bodies. They accredit world-famous schools like ours providing prestigious education. As a result, our students leave us with the confidence they are highly prepared for the industry, taking with them not one accredited qualification but several globally-recognised international qualifications. The accrediting bodies we work with have a long established history of nearly 150 years and are accepted and used in over a hundred countries and over a thousand schools around the world.

Our advice to new students looking for an international makeup qualification is to make sure you research the qualification first as well as the school as some do not offer truly internationally-recognised qualifications. Consider the following points:-

How many countries is the qualification recognised in?

A truly internationally-recognised makeup qualification should have recognition in a significant number of countries. If it is deemed to be internationally-recognised it should be awarded by many schools and recognised in the countries where the qualification is issued. For example if the qualification is not issued by any schools in the USA, Australia or Hong Kong it is not going to be recognised in the USA, Australia and Hong Kong.
Its a fact, the more schools and countries the qualification and accreditation is used and issued in means the more international recognition you will receive.

How many schools are accredited by that qualification or awarding body around the world?

A truly international makeup qualification will be awarded by many schools around the world so if the qualification is only in say 8 or 10 schools in the world it would not be considered as internationally recognised compared to a qualification or accreditation that is used in over a 1000 schools around the world.

Are they government recognised and regulated?

It is important to check that the accreditation and qualifications are supervised by the government. If it is not then this is not considered to be accredited.
Our courses and the awarding bodies we work with are regulated by OFQUAL , the UK Government qualification and examination regulator.
