Henry McDonald talks to Kevin McLoughlin MBE about how we can attract workers into the industry.

Kevin owns K&M McLoughlin Decorating, which has a turnover of £6m+ and a company that heavily invests in the apprenticeship scheme. In 2010 he created K&M Painting & Decorating College as his business needs were not being met by the local colleges.

In 2012, he helped to develop a CSR – Corporate Social Responsibility – program targeted on work skills, giving unemployed youngsters work experience whilst instilling in them basic work ethics.

In 2014 he was awarded an MBE for his services to training. Kevin is a National Apprenticeship Ambassador, he sits on the Islington Business Board and the LCCI Property & Construction Committee.
