Two North Shropshire College (NSC) beauty students have recently competed at the World Skills UK Competitions. Jasmine Kirkham, Level 3 Spa Therapy student and Jade Hughes, Level 2 Beauty Therapy student competed at the regional competitions held at Coleg Cambria.
The pair competed in the Beauty, Hands and Face element of the competition and competed against over 30 other students that travelled from England and Wales to compete on the day. The competitors are marked against a rigorous framework aligned to national training packages, standards and benchmarks.
There was tough competition on the day and Jasmine was able to win 3rd place for Beauty Hands and Face. A fantastic experience for both learners, who have learnt and practiced their skills in the NSC’s Visage salon. The salon offers hair and beauty treatments to the public, giving the students a realistic environment to grow their skills in.
Sharon Cooper, head of the Commercial Services Department at NSC commented, ‘the College is very proud of Jasmine’s and Jade’s accomplishments, candidates from the Beauty Therapy department frequently have success at the World Skills UK Competitions, Jasmine, Jade and other students are supported by dedicated staff striving to maintain quality and standards within the profession.’
