Ryan's Story


Ryan Johnson studied a traineeship with Gateshead Council Learning Skills improving his Painting and Decorating skills and accessed a quality work experience placement with Shaun Mathias Decorators.


The traineeship gave Ryan the opportunity to see Painting and Decorating was a career he wanted to pursue. Ryan is Gateshead Learning Skills first L2 Painting and Decorating apprentice who is now coming up to his end point assessment and nearing completion of his apprenticeship.

The traineeship is a brilliant programme to try different real life, vocational, working environments as well as developing other skills such as communication and confidence. They also help you to decide what is next for you and you can progress into work after only 6 weeks.
