This hands-on practical course has a strong emphasis on fine woodworking and will provide you with the essential skills needed for employment in furniture making, furniture restoration, musical instrument making or any part of the fine woodworking industry.
Professional furniture making is an exciting career choice as it involves designing and making bespoke pieces of furniture such as cabinets, tables, chairs, and office furniture. You will learn the techniques for making quality furniture in our dedicated workshop using modern machines and hand tools and be taught the associated knowledge required for this subject including an awareness of furniture design.
Modules could include:
At the end of the year you will have completed at least one well finished piece of furniture and numerous other hands-on practical tasks and exercises.
You will be assessed through practical projects, a portfolio of evidence and classroom-based examinations.
You could progress to our Level 2 Apprenticeship in furniture making or Level 2 Diploma in Practical Furniture Making, or you could explore a variety of career opportunities in the furniture and woodworking industry. Alternatively, you could enrol on a range of Level 2 courses or another construction subject dependent on achieving the entry requirements.
|Course Title||Practical Furniture Making Diploma Level 1|
There are no formal qualifications required for entry but you must have a desire to learn about furniture making or design, and you will be invited to attend an interview to assess your suitability for the course.
An apprenticeship has been the best option for me since I benefit from working in the industry as well as gaining a qualification. College days give me time to work on my assignments and explore features in the software I haven’t covered at work. During the rest of the week, I develop client relationships which help build my confidence and improve my ability to express ideas.
