Continuous Professional Development (C.P.D.) and Standardisation Activities


We deliver C.P.D. and Standardisation sessions both 'in house' and also via Seminars delivered nationally.

Examples of tailored and bespoke sessions are -

  • Specialist Craft skills for experienced Painters and Decorators i.e. graining and marbling, gilding, stencilling, specialist wallcoverings, contract vinyls, spray painting, broken colour work (rag rolling, sponge stippling)
  • Development of Assessment and Internal Quality Assurance (IQA) techniques i.e. writing Assessor Observation Reports, conducting professional discussion, countersigning trainee Assessors and Internal Verifiers
  • Standardisation of assessment activities, particularly when new or revised National Occupational Standards / Qualification Specifications or Training Qualifications are released
  • Updating previous qualifications e.g. D32, D33 or A1 to Standard 9 or D34 / V1 to Standard 11

These sessions are relevant for -

  • Painting and Decorating companies / sole traders needing to expand their skill base to meet the needs of a new contract, or wishing to tender for new types of work
  • Accredited Construction Assessment Centres
  • Organisations delivering any Construction Craft training
  • Those returning to assessment and quality assurance, having taken time away from these roles
