Traditional Painter
    Trade Corner

    All are welcome to the Traditional Painter Trade Corner.

    Find recommended decorating materials, trusted suppliers and service providers. Many new features coming.

Apprentice Corner

Apprentice Corner has two purposes:

1) help students without an employer to find one

2) showcase the work of apprentices / students of all levels.

Level 1 and 2 P&D students without an employer

If you are going through college but have no employer, writing blogs is a great way to reach potential employers and explain to them about the work and projects you have completed as part of your coursework and training.

Level 1 & 2 students without an employer, submit a blog

The format is simple: Explain the brief; what you did and the materials you used; share what you learned, what you won’t do again; add some photos. That’s it, you just blogged! We will do the rest.

We will publish your articles and they will get read by a lot of potential employers.

Employers looking for Level 1, 2, 3 & 4 P&D students

If you are one of the many tradesmen visiting this site every month, read the blogs for a good insight into what students or apprentices in your area are capable of doing. Those that make the effort to blog, should make prime candidates for a work placement or apprenticeship spot.
