Painting and Decorating Diploma

The Painting and Decorating Level 2 Diploma is a great way of developing your existing knowledge, furthering your practical skills and understanding of the construction industry. You’ll get the chance to experiment with different methods, as well as gaining experience using HVLP spray equipment.

Everything on this course has been designed to give you a deeper understanding of the trade and the industry itself. We’ll give you more than practical skills – we’ll show you everything that you need for a career in construction and how to be a successful painter decorator.

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

What will I learn?

“As a past student, I used the skills I developed to enter industry and enjoy a successful career before returning to teach. Painting and decorating is a real passion of mine, and nothing beats passing this on to our learners and preparing them for their journey in this career, which has given me so much.”Stephen Orme
