Are you looking to become a carpenter? If so, this course is an ideal stepping stone to your dream career. You will work with a range of tools and perfect techniques to produce work to a professional standard. On completion of the course, you will feel prepared for a more advanced training programme or to start work as an apprentice.
Carpenters construct, erect, install and repair wooden structures and fittings used in internal and external frameworks. They also cut, shape, fit and assemble wood to make templates, jigs, scale models and scenic equipment for theatres. This makes it both a hands-on and creative subject to study.
This course is for school leavers who would like to gain experience and understanding of the construction industry.
Students must purchase protective work wear and safety footwear in order to comply with health & safety requirements.
