Our Industry Training Advisor Lorraine met with a group of 5 women at MPA Skills Maylands who are completing a pilot program for women over 21 looking to get into the Painting and Decorating trade.

The pilot is a joint initiative been the Master Painters & Decorators Association and the CTF. The group have completed a week of training at MPA to prepare them for a week of hands-on work placement with qualified painters.

This will help round out their ‘site’ experience, especially for those who have never been on site or had anything to do with construction in the past and help them to secure employment as a Painting and Decorating apprentice.
