Course description

City & Guilds Painting & Decorating Level 1 Diploma:

This one-year full-time course is aimed at school leavers who wish to learn the fundamentals of Painting and Decorating. It acts as a building block for those who later wish to work as a painter and decorator in the construction industry. The programme provides opportunities for students to develop the knowledge, understanding, personal and practical skills that underpin activities in the field of Painting and Decorating. This is a highly practical course which involves removing paint and wallpaper; applying emulsion, undercoat and gloss paint to walls, ceiling and woodwork; applying wallpaper and wood ingrain to walls and ceilings.

During the course students are assessed on practical tests within the workshop, which are judged in accordance with the requirements set down by City & Guilds. There is no formal work experience laid down for this programme of study. However, from time to time, the Construction department becomes involved in project work for the college. The skills learnt within the workshops are then applied to real working situations to enable these projects to be completed. Students are expected to take an active part in this process if required.

We offer a residential week and various activity days, in addition to College-wide trips, sports and visits. Successful completion of this certificate leads to further study on the Painting & Decorating Diploma course.

Additional entry requirements

No formal qualifications are necessary although you will need to be good at practical work. You will be invited to attend an interview to discuss the programme and your career goals.
