The UK’s leading painting and decorating skills competition is entering its 39th year. This prestigious competition is the best known and longest running showcase of talent for up and coming painters and decorators, with over 200 competitors participating each year.
Tutors and employers all across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland encourage their best students and apprentices to participate in regional competitions. Using a range of Crown Paint products, students will be put through their paces as they tackle tests of skill, dexterity and accuracy all within a tight timescale.
Every year the grand finale is held at The Skills Show at the NEC in Birmingham. The Skills Show is a unique annual celebration with over 82,000 visitors that offers exciting opportunities in further education, skills and apprenticeships.
Finalists at The Skills Show, not only have the opportunity to win this unique competition, but also have the opportunity to be handpicked to represent the UK at upcoming WorldSkills competitions – held in countries such as Brazil, Abu Dhabi and Russia, to be titled the best painter and decorator in the world!
The opportunities that this competition can offer the next generation of painters and decorators is monumental.
