Former painting and decorating student Rob Cox

Robert Cox is enjoying life as his own boss after completing his painting and decorating course at college.

The 23-year-old, who studied at the college four years ago, said: “I worked for a couple of companies before setting up my own business last April, and now have a contract with an estate agents with responsibility for maintaining homes across Shropshire and the Midlands.

“Owning my own business is great – I don’t have to answer to anyone else and how well I do is down to how much I put in.

“I’m still in touch with the tutors at college and they are also there to offer me help and guidance – even though I left several years ago.

“Gaining a qualification is vital to get you into this industry and I would advise anyone thinking of a career in painting and decorating to sign up to a course.”
