- Painting & Decorating Apprentice at Novus Property Solutions
- NVQ Diploma in Painting & Decorating
Rebecca originally studied a Hair and Beauty course after leaving high school, but she soon realised it wasn’t the right career path for her and instead decided to follow in her father’s footsteps into the construction industry.
Rebecca enrolled on a Painting and Decorating course at Hopwood Hall College and successfully secured an apprenticeship with property maintenance giants Novus.
“My apprenticeship at Novus has been a great learning curve and has given me the skills to become a professional painter and decorator.
“The tutors at Hopwood Hall College were excellent, they were an important part of me learning the trade and becoming a more confident person.
“It’s the same at Novus, too. I’ve had a lot of support and I feel like a member of the team – not just the apprentice. I haven’t stopped learning since I started here and I enjoy my job a lot.
“I always felt I had to pursue a career in hair and beauty or childcare because I’m a girl, like many others do. But I’ve learnt you don’t have to follow these social stigmas, you can do whatever you want to do".
