This one-year full-time course is aimed at those aspiring to work in the construction industry. This intermediate level diploma is the second step on the ladder to qualified status, providing you with opportunities to develop your knowledge, understanding, personal and practical skills in the field of Painting and Decorating.
You will need the Painting & Decorating NVQ Level 1 or the City & Guilds Basic Skills Certificate in Painting & Decorating.
The programme is both practical and theoretical. All students will be required to produce a portfolio of evidence, including written material, photographs and computer generated material. All students will complete Key Skills units in Communication, Application of Number and Information Technology as an integral part of their overall programme.
From time to time, the Construction department becomes involved in project work for the college. The skills learnt in 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.
During the course you will be tested on practical skills and theory. This assessed work will be judged in accordance with the requirements set down by City & Guilds.
Successful completion of the Level 2 Diploma can lead to further study with the Painting and Decorating Level 3 Diploma.
