Course code: FRAM2NQPD1A Level 2 Various Locations, not at Walsall College sites. Apprenticeships
Painters and Decorators work on a variety of building types and utilise a range of skills to complete tasks.
As a Painter and Decorator you will work on all types of buildings – internally and externally ranging from domestic households to new build and refurbishments. Tasks may include painting, paper hanging, spraying and applying specialist coatings. You will be expected at times to work at height.
You will need to be able to work well as part of a team, be reliable, honest and have a good work ethic. You must also be prepared to be flexible in your working arrangements and as you may work at various locations, willingness to travel is required.
The selection process will include a basic Initial Assessment and an interview during which your suitability, commitment and interest for the programme will be determined. A Painter and Decorator will be required to work with a range of diverse materials and interpret and range of information sources including written specifications, technical drawings and finishing schedules.
Your ability at being able to do this will be assessed in part via the Initial Assessment and interview. To be accepted onto the programme you will need to achieve Literacy and Numeracy at a minimum of Level 1 and it is preferable that you have GCSE grades A – D in Maths and English or equivalent.
When attending your interview you should bring with you any evidence of your previous academic achievement and you may wish to present any other documentation you have in support of your application – for example sports, hobbies or work experience activities that you have participated in. The suitability of your employer will be determined before you are accepted onto the programme. Your employer will need to demonstrate that they have the necessary Health and Safety arrangements in place to satisfy legislative requirements, and that they are able to provide you with the full range of work to successfully complete the Apprenticeship framework. If you do not have an offer of employment we may be able to assist you, however this can not be guaranteed as demand for Apprenticeship places are high.
