Dulux training and work experience opportunities for tenants

Dulux Decorator Centres

Are you 16-18 years old? Are you interested in a career in painting and decorating? Are you reliable and committed to learning new skills? 

If you are and you are a Colchester Borough Homes tenant then we and Dulux Decorator Centres would love to hear from you.  We have a number of sponsorship opportunities for our tenants and their families to gain a qualification in painting and decorating and gain some valuable work experience in a local Dulux Decorator Centre under its pdf icon Fresh Start [718kb] programme.

You will attend Colchester Institute on a one-year part-time course where you will learn basic painting and decorating skills. Dulux Decorator Centres will provide you with all you need for your course including safety shoes, overalls, tools, stationery and college books.

You will then spend time getting work experience in your local Dulux Decorator Centre where you will have an opportunity to work with and meet professional decorators who could become a future employer. You will also get the chance to gain retail and customer service skills.

If you are interested please contact Andy Gray, Works Manager at Colchester Borough Homes, on 01206 506571 for more details or to apply.  

Interviews will take place in July/August and college will start in September / October 2015.
