Level 2 Apprenticeship Painting and Decorating

Course Overview

Apprenticeships combine on the job and off the job training. On the job, an apprentice will work with an employer’s mentor or line manager, learning the skills on site and working towards the competency element of the qualifications. Off the job, apprentices work with their assessor and have access to resources, such as a workbook, to ensure they learn the knowledge elements of the framework. If the required level of Maths, English and ICT qualifications have not been previously achieved or where qualifications are no longer in date, apprentices must also complete functional skill qualifications in these subjects. These would be completed through agreed delivery methods and support including classroom, distance learning, e-learning and assessor support.

This framework will enable learners to develop their Painting and Decorating skills, knowledge and experience. It also enables an individual to gain valuable work experience and obtain qualifications whilst working with an employer.

The qualification is designed for staff within the role of painting and decorating. It will provide a basic understanding and an opportunity to demonstrate and recognise their competences which are critical to performance at work, as well as supporting career progression.
The units have been developed through working in partnership with employers to ensure that individuals have the exact skills needed to perform reliably and consistently at work.

Maximum of £5,000 which supports the Colleges costs including delivery, assessment, registration and accreditation. Funding is dependent on the employer size, individuals age and existing qualifications. Many apprenticeships are free to employers but we will confirm this when we are working with you and before an employer makes a formal commitment to employing an apprentice.
