NATIONAL TRAINING AWARD WINNERS
In 1991 the Wessex Pictures Commercial Framing School was awarded a National Training Award by the Department of Trade and Industry in the presence of the Patron, His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales. The award was in recognition of quality, content, high standards and the professional manner in which the courses are run. Consideration was also given to the success achieved in our industry by previous students and their high recommendations of the courses.
The Wessex Pictures Commercial Framing Course has also been given accreditation by the Fine Art Trade Guild
The Wessex Pictures Commercial Framing School runs a series of professional courses in our new Leatherhead branch with a view to training either those who wish to set up their own framing business, framing staff for existing workshops or professional framers wishing to expand their business by learning new skills. Our classrooms are equipped with a variety of machines to familiarise students at different levels and to help prospective buyers to decide which models best suit their needs. Each course is run by a team of professional framers or technicians which include Garry White GCF, David Wilkie GCF and Steve Goodall who initiate with a lecture and follow up with practical demonstrations and supervision. All courses run from 9.30 am - 5.00pm Monday to Friday with refreshments provided (morning and afternoon) and an hour break for lunch which is provided at no extra charge. As positions on each course are limited to 6 - 8 students, we require a £125 deposit to reserve a place. The balance is due three weeks before the start of each course. In the event of a cancellation the deposit is only refunded if three weeks notice is given in writing. Each student completing a full five day course will be awarded a certificate of attendance.
