Lisa nails down place on prestigious course

Beauty Therapy Lecturer Lisa Robertson has won a place on the highest Nail Services qualification in the UK.

Lisa was chosen as one of only 400 nail technicians from 15,000 applicants across Britain, to study for Mastered – a qualification run by Marian Newman one of the top session nail technicians in the country.

This is Lisa’s third year at Forth Valley College. She has been working as a nail technician for 12 years and she is excited at this new challenge which she started on 12 April this year.

The three month online Mastered qualification requires the student to build portfolios of work focussing more on design, magazine session photo-shoots and working to creative briefs. To apply she had to send in photographs of her work, undergo a telephone interview and make a speech on why she thought she would be a good candidate on the course

She said:

“I feel great to have been accepted onto the course which I suppose is a qualification in itself. I never thought I would get there, but I am chuffed to bits and very proud of myself. It is also great kudos for the college and the Nail Technician Level 3 students will benefit as well as I will be able to bring this experience into the classroom and give them a better understanding of where they can go with their chosen profession.

“The Mastered course is challenging - the highest you can go in Nail Services in further education is a Level 3 Qualification – and this online course is much more creative and about using your imagination to create nails to go with an outfit theme or a brief. My colleagues at Forth Valley College have been very supportive and encouraging and so have the students. It is really exciting and I am really enjoying it.”

FVC Salon Services Curriculum Manager, Lisa Evitt, said:

“We are immensely proud of Lisa’s achievement on being short listed for this course. She is a great asset to the Salon Services team and the new skills she will develop over the course of the programme will further enhance the department portfolio. We wish her all the best!”
