How Dulux Academy promote painting and decorating excellence

How Dulux Academy promote painting and decorating excellence

As well as hosting courses at our two Dulux Academies in Slough and Ashington, we partner with colleges across the UK including Bolton, Edinburgh, Leeds, Lincoln and Walsall to deliver high-quality training.

To ensure that students benefit from the very best training, our partner colleges sign a Joint Minds Charter. This charter sets out how we work with colleges to provide industry-leading training and how the relationship works.

As part of this partnership, our commitments include:

  • Creating learning environments using the latest colour trends and Dulux Academy branding
  • Supporting career events for students
  • Supplying products to agreed amounts via our Dulux Decorator Centres
  • Providing prizes in support of awards for student achievement
  • Delivering CPD opportunities to the college team ensuring their industry knowledge is up to date

To make sure students are getting the highest-quality training, we ask partner colleges to:

  • Promote courses and activities
  • Champion Dulux/AkzoNobel brands
  • Welcome Dulux Academy students on agreed dates
  • Develop their team and make sure they have access to professional development
  • Commit to delivering training in a safe environment
  • Provide input and feedback to support industry developments

By ensuring the commitments in this charter are upheld, we're able to offer access to high-quality training in a wider choice of locations.
