Dulux Academy Launch Apprentice Season Ticket

Dulux Academy is celebrating this year’s National Apprenticeship Week (7th – 13th February) by launching a new Apprentice Season Ticket, the first of several new initiatives that they say are being created to attract, develop, and retain new entrants to the industry.

The Season Ticket opens up a range of learning solutions designed to suit every style. This includes attendance at face-to-face Dulux Academy courses at venues across the UK; access to an online learning Hub; exclusive events and activities; monthly updates to support the curriculum; online subject clinics; and a network for peer-to-peer advice and support. Dulux Academy will also offer a number of fun incentives for Season Ticket holders to celebrate the achievements and successes of all those involved.

The Season Ticket is open to all painting and decorating apprentices that are enrolled at a college or with a learning provider and has an annual fee of £200+VAT. Apprentices will need to enrol via their employer.

As well as helping those starting out in their careers, Dulux Academy is supporting professional decorators taking on apprentices with the launch of a new how-to guide. The guide offers practical information for those who want to know more about what’s involved in taking on an apprentice. This includesinformation on funding available and best practice advice and comments from those that have benefitted from having an apprentice.

Trade professionals can download a free copy of the Dulux Academy Guide to growing your business.

Vickie Mather, Dulux Academy Lead at AkzoNobel, said; “With an ageing workforce and ongoing challenges around encouraging young people to join the industry, it’s vital that we do everything we can to attract new joiners and develop their skills to help build the next generation of painting and decorating professionals.”
