WHAT WILL I LEARN?
This one-year full-time qualification covers a wide range of skills and knowledge required for working as an advanced craft architectural joiner.
The College works with local employers who contribute to the knowledge and delivery of this training. Employers will provide demonstrations and talks on the industry and work placements will be provided where possible.
You will learn about the industry, including the principles of constructing buildings, and about the types of information used in building design and construction. You will learn about health, safety and environmental issues faced on construction sites, and how to communicate with others on the job, including supervisory skills such as planning, organising and pricing work. You will also learn practical skills specific to specialist architectural joinery. You will gain knowledge and skills and be assessed across the following modules:
- Health and Safety
- Principles of the Industry
- Set up and use fixed and transportable machinery
- Manufacture shaped doors and frames
- Manufacture stairs with turns
WHERE WILL IT TAKE ME?
This qualification will allow you to progress into employment demonstrating to an employer that you have the necessary technical skills and knowledge they are looking for when recruiting for a joiner and enhancing the skills and knowledge that you have gained at Level 3. You can also progress into a higher Apprenticeship or Higher National Diploma in construction.
For entry to this programme you will require a Level 2 Bench Joinery qualification (or equivalent) and you will require either a Level 2 in Functional Skills or a Grade 3 in GCSE English and Maths.
You must have a keen interest in construction and a good work ethic. You must be able to work alone and as part of a team and demonstrate commitment to the course.
We provide all of the tools and materials for the course. However, you will be responsible for your own PPE and will be required to come equipped with a pair of steel toe capped boots and a pair of safety glasses.
