engaging more girls into STEM subjects
• Mapping the cosmetics and personal care businesses in the UK
• Identifying relevant education and training establishments and mapping the specific courses available
• Defining skills gaps
• Developing a national curriculum fit for the industry needs
• Producing careers pathways for schools, colleges and training providers
