Painting and Decorating Diploma Level 2

The Painting and Decorating Diploma Level 2 is a great way of developing your existing knowledge, furthering your practical skills and understanding of the construction industry.

You will begin using more advanced techniques and equipment, gaining experience with HVLP spray equipment and experimenting with modern and traditional methods to give you a deeper understanding of this trade.

Upon completion, you will have the skills that prepare you well for an apprenticeship or employment. Alternatively, you could further your studies by progressing to the Painting and Decorating Diploma Level 3.

If you are aged 19 and over you may have options to help fund your studies with us. The funding you can receive depends on your personal circumstances, and could mean you are entitled to free or reduced course fees. You may also be entitled to support with travel, childcare and equipment.

“I had 3 memorable years at South Devon College and was impressed by the tutors and facilities. I now work as a Beauty Therapist, and supply various treatments. One day I want to manage my own spa, before giving something back by teaching a new generation of beauty therapists.”Abbie-Louise Connor
