||Other Regulated/Accredited Qualification
This course is a mixture of theory and practical learning. You will learn how to use carpentry hand tools and how to produce complex woodworking joints used to create stairs and staircases and window frames, for example. You will later progress to using a range of fixed machinery. The course also includes classroom-based learning, where you will continue to develop your understanding of the technical knowledge which underpins your practical work. This will include the study of construction building methods and the importance of communication at work. Most students will also study either Functional Skills or GCSE in Maths and English as a compulsory part of their programme unless they have already obtained a Grade C or above.
How will it be delivered?
You will be assessed through a mixture of practical tests and a number of short on-line and written tests related to each unit of study.
You must achieve at least four GCSEs at D/3 or above in different subjects including English and maths at least grade C/4, or an equivalent Functional Skill, plus appropriate Level 1 Diploma or relevant industry experience with a suitable reference.
Your next steps...
On successful completion of the course at level 2, and with a positive reference from your tutor, you will be able to progress to level 3 the following year. Alternatively, you may obtain suitable employment in the construction industry and continue your studies as an apprentice.
