SCHOOL pupils in Fife are to be given the opportunity to earn qualifications in make-up.

It's all thanks to plans from leading Scottish make-up college GlamCandy – who already have a teaching location on High Street in Dunfermline – to expand its current programme which runs in Aberdeenshire, Edinburgh, and Midlothian.

The firm offered high school classes previously at Auchmuty High School in Glenrothes before the pandemic and is now aiming to return to the Kingdom.

The course sees participants earn an SQA National Progression Award (NPA) in Make-up Skills and is led by professionals who teach beauty, bridal, and evening make-up as well as hygiene and colour theory.

GlamCandy are now hoping to expand across Scotland and offer classes to pupils in Fife and Glasgow, as well as more in Edinburgh.

Steph Kent, enrolment manager at GlamCandy, said: "We are really excited to launch this course across Scotland in 2023.

"As a make-up college, we have trained a high number of successful make-up artists since opening in 2011.

"Many have gone into successful careers by opening their own salons, teaching, working worldwide as make-up artists, launching their own cosmetics, beauty blogging and influencing.

"There are a huge number of careers in the industry and we're proud to put students on the right track.

"We encourage students to get creative, challenge themselves and have fun doing it. This course helps to build confidence and teaches skills that will be useful in whatever career path they take upon leaving school."
