Congratulations to Level 3 Complementary Therapies students Lauren Miles and Christine Schofield-Downing for achieving success at the UK Wales Skills Competition. Lauren was awarded Gold and Christine won Silver for their massage techniques.
Held at Coleg y Cymoedd in Nantgarw earlier this month, students from different schools and Colleges throughout Wales came to showcase their skills, with eight in the final. The Complementary Therapies department compete regularly on the Welsh Skills circuit and have nurtured many a champion, however, there is never any complacency; students and staff are constantly aware that the competition is becoming fierce and standards are rising rapidly!
Both Lauren and Christine competed against six other finalists to demonstrate their massage skills through a 70 minute full-body massage including a facial. Lauren said “I’m really proud of myself. Winning Gold shows that I am working to a high standard. It’ll look really good on my CV.”
Lecturer Hannah Key commented: “We are all very proud that the girls got through to the final. Bringing back Gold and Silver is an excellent achievement.”
