Local businesses from the painting and decorating industry attended the launch of the Academy, which is part of a national drive by Dulux to upskill 10,000 professionals by 2020 across the Country.
The Dulux Academy will be transformed each year with the Dulux Colour of the Year, painted by students to help achieve their gold standard work experience award and ensure they are up to date on industry trends and developments.
Superstar, Willow, the Dulux Dog led the opening of the workshop by pushing her way through a sausage ribbon in true diva style.
Tmasyn Lawton, Director of Education and Training Delivery at Lincoln College said “Sponsoring this facility means we can facilitate industry led courses for those in the trade, continue to build strong employer links and champion our painting and decorating courses by investing in student and staff development.”
Mark Rigby, Skill Development Consultant for the Dulux Academy said “Getting to this point has taken ‘dog-ed perseverance’ and we are thrilled to be launching this facility here today with our doors to courses opening as soon as next week in paint spraying.
“The support from Lincoln College has been excellent and it has been great to work with a team that shows the same passion as we do for decorating excellence.”
Paul Wilcockson, Painting and Decorating Lecturer at Lincoln College said “Our students will benefit greatly by having this partner academy on site and I would like to thank everyone involved.
“We are keen to work with more trade businesses and create industry focused partnerships that can add to our learner’s experience.”
