Painting and decorating

Painting and decorating students at the college can look forward to a range of opportunities including opportunities to take part in regional and national skills competitions, working on real projects (past activities have included decorating projects for various charities) and potential work placements to boost your skillset.

Courses available at the college range from Level 1 to Level 3. Progression opportunities include further study, apprenticeships and employment.

Woodworms get creative at college

“It’s been a great project to work on. Every part of the planters is recycled from old pallets and fence panels – even the screws are recycled. All we’ve had to buy is the paint.”

Matthew Bingham, Level 1 Carpentry and Joinery student

Our carpentry and joinery students are regularly tasked with thrifty projects designed to hone their practical skills including creating useful items from recycled materials. Last year projects ranged from herb planters for the college’s teaching restaurant, to bird boxes and tables which the public can buy.
