WorldSkills 2019: Rebecca West picks up gold medal for beauty therapy

Team UK has achieved a gold medal in beauty therapy for competitor Rebecca West.

The achievement means Britain retains its place as best in that category from EuroSkills in 2018, where Holly-Mae Cotterell was voted Europe’s best beauty therapist.

And it comes after Kaiya Swain came first in beauty therapy at WorldSkills 2017.

Rebecca, who is 22 and from East Sussex College, won silver at the Global Skills Challenge in Australia last April.
