“A really good course which challenged me, having experienced three trades I was able to pick my strongest and the one I most enjoyed, this informed my choice before applying to college for an NPA in Painting and Decorating. The college has great workshops in addition I used industry standard tools and equipment. I felt really prepared for the next step in my career.”
