OVERVIEW

Everyone knows what painters and decorators do but the work they do in the construction industry is much more skilled than DIY. Oil rigs, bridges and steelwork need heavy duty coatings, while stately homes and five-star hotels need painters and decorators who can apply a wide range of wall coverings and paint systems to ceiling and wall areas.

You will need to be good with your hands and have a good eye for detail. Much of the work is indoors but there is plenty of outside work as well. You will need to be quite fit and be prepared to travel to different sites. You will also need to discuss colours and types of finish with clients or householders, so the ability to communicate well is important.

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

Applicants must:

  • Hold a level 2 qualification in a related discipline;
  • Have attained the minimum school leaving age;
  • Have secured employment with a Northern Ireland-based company to work a minimum of 21 hours per week (either as an existing employee in the new job role or about to take up a position with a permanent remunerative employment offer).
  • Have the potential to successfully complete all the requirements of the appropriate Level 3  apprenticeship framework.

Please note: Employers may apply their own criteria during recruitment.  

Full details on all requirements for Level 3 Apprenticeships can be found in the SRC Admissions Policy & Criteria
