To start you will need to have a keen interest in carpentry. Some evidence of studying at GCSE level or successful completion of an entry level qualification would be an advantage. Entry is subject to a successful interview, where you will be asked to complete a skills assessment.
During the course you will cover topics including:
- Handle and store resources
- Contribute to work relationships
- Contribute to providing work relationships
- Preparation and use of portable power tools
- Maintenance and use of woodworking hand tools
- Use basic wood joining techniques.
You will also study essential Core Skills to help you prepare for employment and higher level study.
Assessment is continuous. Your skills and knowledge are measured against set standards as the units of training are completed. There is also one external end test on Wood Occupations: Carpentry.
On successful completion you could progress onto the Carpentry Intermediate Construction Diploma.
The modular design of this course will enable you to progress at your own pace. Completion time for adults will depend on the outcome of prior assessment of your current skills and experience, together with attendance. After this individual training plans can be devised.
