Astrid Evelyn Graban and Daisy Carter from New City College's Redbridge campus will be taking part in the WorldSkills UK Finals at LIVE with the hope of being named the UK's best Creative Media Make-Up artist.
Taking place from 21-23 November at the NEC, Birmingham, WorldSkills UK LIVE is the UK's largest skills, apprenticeship and careers event and is free to attend.
At the heart of the event are the National Finals of the WorldSkills UK Competitions, which are run in 70 different skills across industries including digital, technology, engineering, construction and hospitality.
Astrid and Daisy secured their place in the WorldSkills UK Finals after excelling in the national qualifiers which took place in the summer.
They will join over 500 of the UK's top apprentices and learners who will be competing in the finals with the aim of winning Gold, Silver and Bronze in their chosen skill.
Janet Smith, Principal New City College Epping Forest and Redbridge campuses said:
We are rooting for both Astrid and Daisy at the finals! It is a fantastic achievement to make it to the UK finals and showcase their talents and creativity on a national stage. The chance to be crowned the best in their skill and secure a place in Team UK to be trained for WorldSkills 2022 in Shanghai is so exciting.
Designed by industry experts, the WorldSkills UK Competitions equip apprentices and learners with the world-class skills needed to help UK businesses better compete globally.
The WorldSkills UK Competition in creative media make-up is run in partnership with Coleg Cambria.
