Painting & Decorating Apprenticeship, Jordan Naylor

Deciding what you want to do when leaving school can be a really difficult decision to make! Jordan Naylor, 18, was unsure – like many others. However, after being referred to PM Training through a friend, he is now a successful painting and decorating apprentice with local firm Wallace Contracts

Jordan’s story…

I became an apprentice around December 2017 with Wallace Contracts. I love it here! Every day is different. Sometimes I have to work away from home and I really enjoy being able to visit new places! We recently did work at Alton Towers so I get the chance to work on some amazing projects.

On a day-to-day basis, I usually prepare surfaces for painting, learn different types of paint and how they are used, as well as picking up other skills such as tiling. It’s great that I dabble in different areas of the job and find out which skills suit me best.

PM Training has been a breath of fresh air for me. I hope other young people finishing school can be made aware by teachers of how apprenticeships can be an alternative choice to college. I’m looking forward to seeing where my career takes me and I would recommend the experience to anyone!

Jordan has shown great skills and knowledge during his apprenticeship including:
  • To be thorough and pay attention to detail
  • The ability to work well with others
  • To be flexible and open to change
  • The ability to accept criticism and work well under pressure
  • Customer service skills
  • Knowledge of public safety and security

    We are over the moon with the progress Jordan has shown and has now become a valued member of the team with a bright future, a young and enthusiastic trainee with a great attitude we hope to help him grow further beyond his apprenticeship.
