Why do a Painting & Decorating Course?

Now is the time to take a Painting and Decorating course!

Firstly, according to a number of recent surveys, it has been claimed that there is a shortage of over 33,000 tradesmen approximately – including skilled painters and decorators - in the capital and the rest of the southeast region. Elsewhere, it has been reported that two-thirds of construction firms say that they have declined to bid on some projects, due to the lack of resources.

This could lead to a situation where house building declines simply down to the fact there are no longer enough skilled people to complete building works, including paintwork.

So surely this is a great opportunity to train in a trade that is in need of skilled workers, opportunities will arise due to this shortage, meaning that there is currently an opening, so take advantage!
