Looking forward to your updates and the results of your recent meeting. I am looking to work with local businesses, in Denny, Falkirk and surrounding area, to deliver Beauty and Hair qualifications whilst pupils gain valuable work experience. Could you maybe get in touch and we can see whether you can make this happen more easily for me! Thanks, Carol.
