Over the past 10 years, AC Beck has supported more than 20 apprenticeships in painting and decorating and exterior renovation.

We take on two new apprentices every year. Each AC Beck apprentice follows a 2 year programme, with the option to extend their training to a third year. We also give all our apprentices the opportunity to attend a college course in painting.

Careers at AC Beck

Like most AC Beck apprentices, Colin Holland stayed with the company after his apprenticeship as a painter. Ten years on, he’s now a supervisor, having worked his way through the ranks:

"My apprenticeship at AC Beck set me up for working independently in the industry. When I completed my training I left the company to gain some experience, but after a while I decided to ask AC Beck if they would have me back. Since then I’ve progressed from a foreman to a supervisor. The job is varied. I meet lots of interesting people and have to think on my feet. There’s no doubt the apprenticeship has enabled me to cope with the challenges I face at work."

Meet our apprentices

Name: Dylan Jackson

My apprenticeship is going really well. I’ve been given a variety of jobs such as replacing sash windows, removing and filling putty, inserting new window sills, decorating and much more. I’ve learnt a lot on site so far as well as college and I am enjoying working for this company.

Name: Liam Mudge

I was fortunate to be chosen to become an apprentice for AC Beck while I was studying at college. They presented me the opportunity to do 2 weeks work experience with the company before my apprenticeship. An apprenticeship is a great way to gain a qualification and experience at the same time.
