If you are interested in creating things you can be proud of, using your initiative to solve problems, are in possession of good hand and eye co-ordination and are a logical thinker, then this may be the course for you.
The Level 1 Diploma in Carpentry and Joinery has been designed as a pre-apprenticeship qualification that will prepare you for a career in carpentry. The achievement of this qualification is based wholly on college-based work, with no requirement for on-site employment.
As part of the course you will work through a range of tasks within a ‘live’ workshop environment. These tasks will be supplemented with practical demonstrations which are designed to develop your awareness of the need for safe working practices, basic tool skills and accurate measurement. All of these skills are necessary to become a competent carpenter or joiner.
Classroom based theory lessons will develop the trade knowledge and skills required to become a competent tradesperson.
