Course Overview

This course is the first step towards becoming a successful painter and decorator. You could progress onto the level 3 study programme or you could secure your own apprenticeship with an employer and earn while you learn

This course is for those who want to develop a career within the painting and decorating industry. This course builds upon the skills you have previously gained at level 1 and provides the opportunity to gain valuable work experience alongside your course.

You'll learn how to apply paint by brush and roller, apply paper to walls and ceilings, prepare surfaces and how to produce specialist decorative finishes.

Entry Requirements

Successful completion of the Level 1 Painting and Decorating Diploma. Progression to the level 3 is guaranteed with a good standard of attendance and commitment to all lessons including maths and English.

If you are a year 11 student applying for this programme, we will compare your GCSE results with the minimum target grades set for you by your school. This will help us decide whether this is your most suitable programme of study. Other students, including those from outside the area, will have an opportunity to discuss their qualifications and experience to make sure they too are studying at the right level. For some programmes, we might need to observe you carrying out certain practical tasks before we can make you an offer.

Essential Skills – English and Maths

If you achieve a grade 3 in GCSE Maths or English you will have to work towards re-sitting these subjects as part of your main study programme. At B&FC, this won’t delay your career journey because you’re working towards these subjects at the same time as your chosen subject.
