For a career in painting and decorating you’ll need a lot of hands-on experience. That’s why our courses are practical and held in our purpose built painting and decorating workshops including rooms with ceilings, walls, chimney breasts, window reveals, skirting and door casings.
You’ll start by learning the basic techniques of preparation, paint types and application before moving on to more complex projects developing your skills to industry standards.
Below you’ll find content from our tutors, giving you an insight into what to expect from the course, a short showcase of some student work and a small task you’ll complete on your course.
