Lincoln and Dulux Academy start new partnership
Alongside two purpose-built facilities in Slough and Ashington, Lincoln College has joined a growing list of Dulux Academy training centres based throughout the UK. These centres enable the Dulux Academy team to provide a national offer of practical-based courses, regardless of location.
Dulux Academy Lincoln will provide the same hands-on, engaging training as the other Dulux Academy facilities. The courses are run and delivered by the Dulux Academy team and equip attendees with the knowledge, understanding and skillsets they need to carry them forward into their future or existing careers.
Tmasyn Lawton, Director of Education and Training Delivery at Lincoln College, commented: "Sponsoring this facility means we can facilitate industry-led courses for those already in the trade, continue to build strong employer links and champion our painting and decorating courses by investing in student and staff development."
Each year the Lincoln Dulux Academy will be transformed 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 with the latest industry trends and techniques.
Mark Rigby, Skills Development Consultant for the Dulux Academy, said: "We are thrilled to be launching this facility in Lincoln College. I am excited to see the training offered by Dulux Academy expand its reach throughout the country to encourage a new generation of technically skilled painting professionals. 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, commented: "Our students will benefit greatly by having this partner Dulux 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 learners' experience."
Delivered by leading industry experts, the Dulux Academy curriculum is designed for professionals of all levels, from apprentices to consultants - ensuring its courses can deliver increased knowledge and understanding to attendees whilst helping them to achieve their personal and business ambitions.
