Painting and Decorating is one of the most rewarding trades to join and our facilities at West Suffolk College will enable you to gain all the knowledge required for a great start in this industry.

  • Broken colour effects

 

Extensive workshop facilities and experienced industry professional staff will ensure you learn to develop the skills required for today's thriving decorating industry.

 

Working in Painting and Decorating can lead to a range of different and challenging working environments; you only need to consider the variety of property in Suffolk and the surrounding areas, from residential housing to historical and protected buildings, to realise how valuable a detailed knowledge of this trade can be.

 

Whether you want to become a skilled Painter and Decorator or you want to branch out into set design or shop fitting, our courses will help you achieve your goals.
