Three Burton and South Derbyshire College beauty students have scooped first place in regional WorldSkills competitions at the NEC Birmingham.
Naomi Radbourne, Nicola Cockerill and Laura Hayes were asked to demonstrate their ability to carry out modern and traditional beauty therapy treatments, all judged by beauty industry experts and professionals.
The three students will now go on to compete against the best of the best in the national final of the WorldSkills UK competition in November. Naomi has also earned a place in Squad UK for the next international skills competition – Worldskills Leipzig 2013.
Jackie Heaton, beauty therapy course leader, said: “All three students demonstrated skills to the highest level and have all now obtained employment at prestigious spas. They are excellent examples of professional therapists.”
