Students are fortunate to have a dedicated facility for construction craft in wood occupations at both campuses, with workshops that are well-equipped with a range of carpentry tools. Well-appointed classrooms and computer facilities enhance the workshops and provide a link between practical and knowledge aspects of the course.
This course is made up of practical and theory elements, which means you will be able to work at your own pace to complete the modules that are required to achieve the qualification. Assessment is through synoptic test pieces and multiple choice online tests. You will also sample a number of other trades including electrical, giving you a rounded understanding of the construction industry.
During the course you are required to complete 30 hours of trade-related work experience.
Practical coursework will be marked through set practical tasks. Underpinning knowledge is assessed via internally-set test papers and online exams, however there will be a need to complete a multiple choice test that is externally set by the awarding body.
If suitable employment is secured, you could progress on to an Apprenticeship in either brickwork or carpentry & joinery. Alternatively you could start a full-time Level 2 course at Bridgwater & Taunton College.
|Course Title||Carpentry and Joinery Diploma Level 1|
