Training Program Description
This nationally recognised program is for people who want to learn the theoretical and practical aspects of interior decoration.
You will learn how to apply colour to interiors, select furniture, choose fixtures, select appropriate fabrics, renovation and restoration. In addition you will learn how to solve problems creatively, be imaginative, think laterally and extend and transform problems by designing innovative solutions. You will learn how to encourage and promote creativity both for yourself, your colleagues and contacts; produce creative contemporary designs taking into account historical, socioeconomic, political and environmental influences; and produce creative solutions within domestic and commercial contexts.
You will also learn how to work productively with others; respond to changing circumstances; clarify ideas, communicate them clearly and make sure that the vision is shared and understood the same way by all involved; and use effective interpersonal skills to interact with design team members, clients, associated professionals, suppliers and service providers, communicate intentions using a range of techniques, media and technologies.
You will also learn how to stay abreast of trends, fashions and technical developments; develop and maintain knowledge of sources of related products, suppliers, contractors and specialist expertise required to support a creative proposal; and apply knowledge of manufacturing, construction and fabrication processes in the development of a decoration project.
