Well done to Year 11 Bunbury Catholic College (Mercy Campus) student, Caitlin Carmody, who successfully competed in the WorldSkills competition for hairdressing in August this year.

WorldSkills competitions take place bi-annually across a range of skills areas, from plumbing, to electrical and cooking. Held at the South Regional TAFE Bunbury campus, the regional VETiS (Vocational Education and Training in Schools) WorldSkills hairdressing competition allows students to showcase their skills and compete for the opportunity to take part in the national competition which will be held in Sydney in 2018.

The results of the regional competition will be announced at the medal presentations which take place in December.

South Regional TAFE Bunbury Training Manager and WorldSkills hairdressing trainer Anita Host said the students would be judged not only on their skills in the areas of massage, treatment, basin services and braiding and upstyling skills, but also on how they interacted with clients.

“Hairdressers trained at Bunbury’s South Regional TAFE are highly regarded, having fared well at WorldSkills competition in recent years,” Mrs Host said.

Caitlin is currently undertaking a school based traineeship at ‘Snippets of Colour’.
