We are now approved as an EPAO for the main trade standards in Construction including Carpentry and Joinery (and Advanced), Bricklayer, Plasterer, Painter & Decorator.

This apprenticeship is designed by key employers in the Construction industry and is one of the new 'trailblazer apprenticeships'.  It provides the skills and underpinning knowledge for Painters & Decorators and includes an end-test at the end of the apprenticeship which includes both a knowledge and practical skills test.

Painters and Decorators operate in domestic and commercial properties and undertake the decoration and protection of buildings. Properties include houses, schools, offices, hospitals factories and construction sites. Working internally or externally they work individually and/or as part of a team applying water-borne and/or solvent-borne paint coatings and wallcoverings. They have good knowledge of paint coatings and wallcoverings and understand and comply with statutory, safety and environmental requirements. They are responsible for their own work achieving a high quality finish at the appropriate pace. They are good problem solvers and communicators and are able to interact effectively with colleagues, clients and associated trades.

On-programme

On-programme is the learning phase for apprentices to pick up the skills, knowledge and behaviours set out in the standard. Apprentices need to complete 20% off-the-job training during the on-programme phase of their apprenticeship which must take place in the apprentice’s contracted hours. The apprentice must also complete a portfolio of evidence during their on-programme learning. The portfolio is not graded but will form the basis for the questioning during the professional discussion. The apprentice must collect supporting evidence throughout their final year to build up their portfolio. It is recommended that employers and training providers work closely to support the apprentice to gather evidence to include within their portfolio, such as a journal recording their experiences, formative written and practical tests, as well as employer appraisals
