Construction Futures; NPA Painting and Decorating

"This isn’t the first course I’ve studied at the College. Last year I completed Construction Futures, and before that Be Ready to Work.

"I’m really enjoying the NPA course, and I’m managing the work well. I’ve always wanted to do painting and decorating, and I knew I would have to improve my qualifications to do that. This is where the Construction Futures course came in before the NPA.

"Construction Futures is a good place to start for anyone trying to get into the industry as it gives you the opportunity to experience joinery, plumbing, painting and decorating and brickwork, so if you’re not sure what’s for you, it’s the ideal starting point.

"My next step would ideally be into an apprenticeship in painting and decorating."
