And the award goes to …

Our mission is 'Learning for Distinction' and as centres of expertise, our colleges offer the highest quality of training. We are therefore particularly proud when our learners excel in regional and national competitions receiving prestigious prizes and awards with some examples shown below.

Amy Senior, a learner at our Barnsley college, won the 'Jane Airdale' National Make-up Artistry competition.

Malwina Kolus gained 1st place in Bridal Make-up and Natasha Braithwait came 3rd in Fashion Make-up at the National Make-up Artists Awards at the Birmingham NEC on 22nd May 2017. Malwina and Natasha study at our college in Leeds.

Sophie Bodsworth and Donnella James won 1st and 2nd place respectively at the regional heats of the prestigious WorldSkills UK competition in 'Face and Body Therapies' category. Jessica Hawke secured 3rd place in the ‘Hand and Face’ category. WorldSkills UK competitions bring together students, apprentices and young people from across the country to compete to be the best in their chosen skill. Winners of regional heats can progress to the national competition, which is going to be held in Birmingham later this year, and can ultimately join the Team UK which could see them compete on the world stage. Both Sophie and Donnella are learners at our Harrogate college whilst Jessica studies at our college in Sheffield.

 With much appreciation and gratitude I would like to say a  
massive thank you to all at The East Midlands College. My 
personal life over the last year has been a trying one but you and the 
staff have always been supportive. Without this support and the 
flexibility I would have found it difficult to complete my Level 3 
Beauty Therapy qualification. I will miss you all and the lovely 
pleasant atmosphere.
