About APC Plastering School

APC Plastering School was set up by the directors of a long established Plastering Company who recognised there was a shortage of skilled men coming through the ranks.

The Plastering School is an integral part of their fibrous plastering unit and as such is a constant source of information and inspiration for all the students. All aspects of the plastering trades are taught here. For those who wish to pursue a career in the building industry the Wet Plastering Courses all carry NVQ Units.

Class sizes are small and all students will have access to fully qualified tutors who are also time served plaster craftsmen. Opportunities also exist for those wishing a career in Fibrous Plastering and Remedial Plastering.

APC will be offering students the opportunity to learn techniques that will fill the void within our industry ranging from the renovation and restoration of historic buildings to the massive industry of the construction of film sets used in movies such as Harry Potter, James Bond and Troy.

APC is uniquely situated alongside their thriving plaster moulding workshop. As part of the training, students will receive supervised site experience in a real working environment and can benefit from observing and working with life trained master craftsmen.
