Building successful careers

GlamCandy accreditation is worth so much more than a piece of paper and our team are extremely proud of our success. In 2011 we were the very first school to deliver a non-product specific makeup masterclass; which is now a service widely offered by makeup artists throughout the world. In 2016 we were the first private college in Scotland to offer an HNC in Fashion Makeup and offer this SQA accreditation. An accreditation from GlamCandy is invaluable, we have high expectations from our students; we expect dedication, determination, creativity and a strong passion to get the job done no matter what obstacles arise. Many of our successful students who demonstrate these qualities continue to lead successful careers.

We are particularly proud to say that we train to a standard that potential employers find desirable. We have previously hired many graduates to join the GlamCandy team from retail artists, trainee tutors and freelance makeup artists. We educate students from briefs and requests from real customers from bridal, beauty and fashion makeup to ensure that all skills taught are current and relevant.

Students are able to learn from some of the finest technical make-up artists in the industry with real, relevant experience across multiple mediums, as well as benefit from GlamCandy’s strategic partnerships with leading professional brands.

I’d like to say thank you so much for all your support throughout the course and especially towards the end when I was struggling to meet the completion dates due to personal circumstances. I am so happy that I passed let alone getting a ‘B’. I wouldn’t have managed without the extra hours you gave me to come in and helped me with any queries and always assisting me when I needed help throughout the course. I think you should also be proud of yourself for being such an amazingly talented tutor. You’ve always been patient, kind, fair and caring. Also, fun whilst always remaining professional, that’s always a bonus from a student's point of view. It makes learning so much more interesting.
