Bagnalls has, for many years, enjoyed a reputation for developing its people from apprentices to management. To supplement the college training provided under the CITB (Construction Industry Training Board) apprenticeships scheme, we established our own Painting Academy in order to provide additional practical skills training in a controlled environment.
The facility, managed by our Group Technical and Training Manager and a dedicated Craftsman Tutor, provides an environment where young people can build their confidence in painting and decorating and familiarise themselves with new products before applying them in a customer’s premises.
The Painting Academy is also used by more experienced employees to polish-up their skills, attend safety seminars and learn about new product formulations and equipment. The facility continues to support our passion for developing our own people in-house as well as helping us to produce the highest standards of workmanship expected by our discerning customers.
Since its opening in 2004, the Painting Academy has been visited by many prospective and existing customers who share our passion for skills development as well as budding apprentices through school involvement days.
