Four of the College’s Beauty learners were busy showcasing their exceptional skills last week after progressing to the next round of the WorldSkills UK Nail Technician competition.

Olha Syrnk, Lauren Ford, Katrice Michael and Caitlin Olivia Hill (not pictured) - who are all currently studying on the Level 3 Advanced Nail Enhancements course - were successful in the opening heat of the competition after impressing the judges with their entries. The deadline for their latest submissions, which saw them tasked with producing a commercial set of nails supported by pictorial and written evidence, was on Friday.

Tutor Kerry Wray, who is now eagerly awaiting an update on how the quartet have fared in the second heat, said: “It was great to see four of our five entrants progress to the next stage. All the learners have put a lot of effort into the WorldSkills competition and it was nice to see their dedication, commitment and hard work rewarded. That has continued in the latest stage and seeing them represent the College in such a prestigious competition is something which fills me with pride. I wish all four of them the very best of luck as they bid to qualify for the UK finals.”

The WorldSkills UK competition focuses on the roles and talents of a Nail Technician, bringing in creative tasks which reflect current trends within the nail industry. This may include nail care, nail technology and nail art. All competitors are also tested on health and safety, exceptional client care and communication skills, with judges looking for entrants to demonstrate their specialist skills and technical knowledge to the highest level with a view to progressing their career further in the nail industry.
