The Dulux Academy has expanded its nationwide reach by opening a new training facility, in partnership with Lincoln College.
This partnership comprises part of Dulux Academy’s commitment to train up 10,000 UK professionals by 2020 and was officially opened with an event for local business in the painting and decorating industry.
The new Dulux Academy will offer hands-on, engaging training courtesy of the academy’s team of industry leading experts, taking place in a learning environment designed to make the most of the experience.
Courses give participants the knowhow, understanding and skillset needed to propel them forward into their future or existing careers.
Tamsyn Lawton, Director of Education and Training Delivery at Lincoln College, commented: “Sponsoring this facility means we can facilitate industry led courses for those already in the trade, continue to build strong employer links and champion our painting and decorating courses by investing in student and staff development.”
Every year, the Dulux Academy is set to be transformed with the Dulux Colour of the Year, painted by students to help them realise their gold standard work experience award and ensure they are up to date with the latest industry trends and techniques.
Mark Rigby, Skills Development Consultant for the Dulux Academy, said the company were ‘thrilled’ to be launching the facility.
He added he was excited to see the training offered by Dulux Academy expand its reach throughout the country and that the support from Lincoln College had been excellent.
Paul Wilcockson, Painting and Decorating Lecturer at Lincoln College said students will benefit greatly by having this partner Dulux Academy on site.
“We are keen to work with more trade businesses and create industry focused partnerships that can add to our learners’ experience,” he added.
