Shoreditch Nails Academy launches scholarship competition to support the BAME community

London-based Shoreditch Nails Academy is supporting underrepresented groups by offering one lucky person from the BAME community a space on its newly reopened scholarship programme.

The scholarship will help a budding nail tech from the BAME community gain the skills and qualifications they need to become successful, enabling them to be insured to provide manicures, pedicures and gel-polish application. 

The course will be run over four consecutive Sundays and the academy will provide the student with everything they need to start practising at home, including bespoke nail tools and polishes. The course is also worth 66 CPD points. 

“We want to give this opportunity to a member of the BAME community to provide them with the perfect starting point to a career in the beauty industry and an opportunity to work within our growing company,” said founder Tina Michaels.  

“We are committed to supporting underrepresented groups through our work here at Shoreditch Nails, and would like to see a more inclusive beauty industry in the future.

The lucky student will also be given the opportunity to interview at Shoreditch Nails in Shoreditch and Shoreditch Nails in Dalston for a full-time job. 

Applications for the scholarship are open until July 31. Entrants need to email for more information and details on how to apply.
