The Model Academy, takes pride in training South Africa’s models by identifying their talent and developing our models by improving their self-confidence, modelling skills and techniques in catwalk, photographic modelling, deportment and acting, whilst also equipping our students with important life skills including etiquette and improving self-presentation.

Our signature course is the 6 month model training program which grooms our models from start to finish. For shorter courses we recommend the Introduction to Modelling courses or specialised courses. After each course we put our students forward to SA’s top modelling and acting agencies by assisting with introductions and the application process. We also offer continued support and guidance with regards to all aspects of the industry.
