Developing our Young Workforce

A group of S3 pupils had the opportunity to join a local salon, Lady Jane Vintage, for some practical experience of working in the beauty sector as part of our “Developing the Young Workforce” programme.   The girls learned about some of the skills required to become a Nail Technician and a Make-up Artist.

The girls had a fantastic time and took away a new enthusiasm for the beauty industry.  Thank you to everyone at Lady Jane Vintage salon for showing the girls around and teaching them some new skills.
