If you're creative and good with your hands, then a career as a Painter & Decorator could be just what you're looking for.
Painters & Decorators don't just work in homes - as well as working in a domestic setting, you can also work commercially or industrially, using your skills to paint anything from an office to a bridge!
We have close ties with the Dulux Academy, meaning you'll benefit from the very best that the Painting & Decorating industry has to offer. You could learn:
This programme is different – it’s really varied and I learn something new every day. The tutors teach at a pace that I can handle and in class I get to mix with people with different lives from different backgrounds, all trying to make something of themselves. I’ve been putting my new techniques into practice, decorating my house and I’ve even done a few jobs for friends. I’d recommend this programme. After this I’m going to complete my Level 2 and then I’m hoping to get an Apprenticeship.

I’d been thinking about becoming a painter and decorator for a few years then I decided to give it a go. It’s my third year here and I enjoy it; the tutors know what they’re doing and they’re good at teaching. In class, we’ve got access to all of the necessary equipment.
