Very Proud to announce we have two BAFTA Scholarship winners Alesha Ledeatte-Williams & Georgia Gable who will be training at The Iver Make-up Academy on our Advanced Certificate in Hair and Make-up Artistry
Alesha Ledeatte-Williams, aged 31 from Barking, East London, is awarded £12,000 to study an Advanced Certificate in Make-Up and Hair Artistry at The Iver Make-Up Academy.
She previously studied Business Management Marketing at Brunel University before working in education both in the UK and Japan. Currently, she works part-time at MAC Cosmetics as well as working part-time as a Freelance Beauty Make-up Artist.
Alesha said: ““I’m overwhelmed to have been chosen for the scholarship and I think it’s really important that make-up is being awarded funding as there really isn’t enough out there for people wanting to study at this level. I feel that it has cemented the path that I want to follow and being awarded this scholarship is an affirmation that I’m heading in the right direction with my career goals. I’m really excited to start my course and am looking forward to learning all that The Iver Make-up Academy has to offer, as well as being a BAFTA Scholar, supported by Warner Bros! I especially want to be able to help others in the future whether it’s mentoring or potentially, even teaching as time goes on."
Alesha is receiving a Prince William Scholarship in Film, Games and Television, supported by BAFTA and Warner Bros.
Georgia Gable, aged 31 from Clayhill, London is awarded £10,000 towards the Advanced Certificate in Make-Up and Hair Artistry at The Iver Make-Up Academy. She currently works as a Freelance Beauty Make-up Artist and Hairdresser.
Georgia said:” To be awarded the scholarship is beyond my dreams. I never imagined I would receive it, but now I have, I can envisage a bright future in the industry working with and learning from the tutors at The Iver Make-up Academy and also through BAFTA. Having the scholarship means I can attend the Academy and do the Advanced Certificate in Make-up and Hair Artistry. Without BAFTA this would never be a reality for me.”
