Commercial Decorator Boosts Industry Skills
A Kirkby-based commercial decorating firm has been helping to enhance industry skills in the region with a successful work-based training scheme.
Coult Decorators, which has been trading for 20 years and works on projects at schools, pubs and factories across the North West, has been providing preliminary experience to trainees looking to move on to apprenticeships as they take their next career steps.
Having taken on two days of paid work for the firm over the past year to develop his skillset, 17-year-old trainee Spencer Morgan has now secured a place on a Knowsley College apprenticeship from September.
Meanwhile 20-year-old Scott Feeney, who attended Hugh Baird College and has also been training at work with Coult Decorators, is now set to expand the firm’s team of six staff on a permanent basis, as he takes on a full-time painter and decorator role in September.
Glynn Coult, of Coult Decorators, says helping to prepare young people for the industry has allowed the long-trading company to “put something back into the area” as it focuses on providing local jobs.
