Course Overview

Are you an experienced decorator looking to gain the qualifications required for professional site work? If so, our NVQ Level 2 Painting & Decorating course is ideal for you – we will help you to complete your portfolio and gain your NVQ diploma in the shortest possible timeframe, with minimal fuss and disruption to your personal life.

To earn your painting and decorating NVQ, you will need to gather the following evidence of your work:
  • Photographs of your jobs
  • Factual accounts (storyboards)
  • Testimonials from first-hand witnesses
You will be assigned an assessor who specialises in painting and decorating; this person will help you to compile your portfolio, offering advice and reviewing your progress along the way to ensure that you are on the right track at all times.

Who should enrol?

Our painting and decorating NVQ course is specifically designed for experienced decorators who wish to gain the qualification that will be expected of them when they seek professional site work.

What qualification will I achieve?

Once your portfolio has been submitted and approved by an assessor, you will be awarded the City & Guilds Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Painting & Decorating. This diploma qualifies you for on-site work, and you will be given a CSCS card that will allow you to prove your credentials to employers.

Our assessment process

Here’s the route that you will follow in order to earn your painting and decorating NVQ:
  1. You will first attend a brief interview , which will give us a chance to ascertain your current level and tailor your course to your specific needs. Please note that you may, depending upon previous experience gained, need to achieve your level 2 diploma prior to attaining the NVQ. This depends on a number of factors, but don’t worry, we will advise you.
  2. You will then undergo a formal induction , which can be conducted in person or over the internet. We will introduce you to the NVQ level 2 painting and decorating course and explain what you will need to do in order to complete your portfolio and gain your diploma.
  3. As you gather the evidence for your portfolio, you will attend regular progress meetings with your assessor, who will assess the evidence that you are compiling and make sure that you stay on the right track.
  4. Once your portfolio is complete, you will submit it and – if approved – receive your painting and decorating NVQ diploma.
