97% Of Trainee Painters Failed ‘Cutting In’ Module At Dungannon Tech

Looking for advice on cutting in.

Looking for advice on cutting in.

Standards of painting and decorating in Tyrone are said to be at an all-time low after the Dept of Education’s recent publication of vocational exam results. 

Despite a rise in applicants for the course, Professor Jemmy Hanna maintains the level of competency is shockingly poor:

“Yes, it’s cat altogether. Cutting in was always a hard skill but young lads now don’t even get close to passing it. I was monitoring a lad from Brackaville last week who was painting a 14 x 14 ceiling and his cutting in was that bad it was impossible to know where the wall ended and the ceiling started. He then produced a packet of baby wipes to rectify the error and made a hames of it. Salvador Dali I called him.”

Prof Hanna also lamented the lazy attitude to the tools of work from today’s apprentices:

“On numerous occasions I’ve witnessed trainee painters forgetting to do basic duties in terms of looking after their brushes and rollers after a day’s work. This morning a boy from Killeeshil resumed his duties from last night with a rock hard brush. He more or less painted a wall with a stick.”

Meanwhile, the plumbing course at the college has again seen record numbers applying for a place after it was revealed that plumbers are now more desirable than firemen amongst Tyrone women, according to a poll in today’s Sunday Independent.

Mary Jordan, a 33-year old from the Moy, agreed:

“A man with a spanner in his hand covered in boiler dust just sends me mad.”
