It was interesting to hear the feedback from three of the our apprentices today at the Training Academy on their first year within the industry and working for Bagnalls. They have all enjoyed their introduction to painting and decorating and are proud of the projects that they have been working on, including painting at Flamingo Land and redecorating the hanger which will house the Concorde in Filton, near Bristol. The academy trainer has really tested their skills this week and they said that it was a great way to get personal feedback on their progress. One of our third year apprentices was also in the academy and he took time to support the first years with the more complex aspects of paper hanging, including dealing with light switches etc. As usual they all had a go at a design near the end of the week and they said that they hope to achieve the standards set by the second and third year apprentices whose designs are still on show in the academy.
The “highlight” of their week had to be when they prepped and painted the skip in the yard!!!!!!!
