We strive to allow graduates room to build their own unique style of working, whilst still providing them with support in getting a good start in the industry. Once our students have completed their course we assist in any way that we can. Assistance ranges from helping with CV writing and cover letters, interview etiquette, helping with portfolios, photos, networking tips, as well as talking through how to behave on set.
We also allow our current students and graduates to borrow supplies for their jobs! This means you don’t need to spend too much money on expensive products, and you can save your hard earned cash.
Finally we get all of our graduates on to the set of whichever major film Christine Blundell is working on, for a valuable insight into life on set.
No other school does this. No other school adds the level of importance that we do to aftercare. Remaining part of the CB*MA family is very important to us. We are here to help, to talk, to support. By creating a family ethos it makes us stronger and gives our graduates that extra chance to succeed. We believe it is important to strike the right balance between assistance and independence.
The fact that we now have so many CB*MA graduates working in the industry & with ALL of our teachers also working in the industry and constantly looking for new Make-up trainees, means that ALL of our students have a fighting chance of survival and success in the industry. We even have ex CB*MA students back here to teach because we maintain the relationship with them and can see the improvement and confidence in their skills since graduating.
Where other schools fail, we win.
