Joint effort to encourage young talent

08 April 2016

An initiative involving five organisations has been launched to for students completing their NVQ Level 3 studies in painting and decorating.

The Lucas College Programme is a joint effort between fit out and finishing specialist Lucas, Dulux Trade, Go Construct, Knauf and Constructing Excellence (Kent).

It is open to any student but particularly aimed at those without a sponsor, work placement or employer and therefore in danger of leaving the industry.

The competition is based on a scorecard that rates student's skills and attributes, including safety record, work ethic, ability to absorb project details, customer relations and overall attitude to taking responsibility and project delivery.

Shortlisted finalists will attend the Dulux Training Academy in Slough for review.

The campaign has been launched with a poster based on the MAD acronym: motivation, attitude and desire.

Successful students will win a full VIP experience in visiting the McLaren Technology Group.
