Painting and Decorating adds colour and interest to new architecture, and rejuvenates and modernises the old.
What you will learn

They work inside and outside buildings and structures such as houses, offices, shops, factories, hospitals, schools and boats.
How you will learn
This programme is delivered through a combination of classroom theory and practical skills development. Much of the curriculum delivery is based in the college based painting and decorating workshops. The section carries out a significant proportion of the programme, completing off-campus commissions at venues within local organisations on the Isle of Wight. You will be assessed through practical and theory based assessments both in the classroom and workshop. Completion of workbook throughout the course.
