The Dulux Academy has extended its reach across the UK by opening a new training facility in partnership with Lincoln College. The new partnership forms part of Dulux Academy’s commitment to upskill 10,000 UK professionals by 2020 and was officially opened with an event for local business in the painting and decorating industry in the area.

The new Dulux Academy will provide hands-on, engaging training delivered by the Dulux Academy’s team of industry leading experts -  in a learning environment designed to maximise the experience.  Courses 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 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.”
