Using a range of practical and theoretical teaching methods, these courses will develop your skills in our extensive workshop area which simulates a construction site environment. Throughout this course you will cover safe working practices, communication, building methods and construction technology, set up a circular saw, produce setting out details for joinery products, mark out joinery items, manufacture joinery products including doors, frames, lining, units and staircases.

This course is broken down into separate units focusing on specific areas which are then assessed. This will allow us to check your progress before the next module begins.

You will receive practical and theory lessons. In practical lessons you will work through a series of tasks or projects to develop your hands-on skills. All of the tasks that you produce are set by the awarding body to demonstrate and verify your practical skills. The theory sessions provide you with the underpinning knowledge of the construction industry needed to apply your skills on site.

We take part in various competitions to showcase the skills and determination of our students.


You will need to have achieved at least a grade 4 in English and maths. You will also need to attend an interview before being accepted onto the course.

Your entry level will be assessed, based on any previous experience you may have, initial aptitude test results and from discussing your goals and aspirations. No matter what level you start at, each course prepares you for the next, allowing you to progress and maximise your potential.


Practical work is assessed in the workshop against the awarding body criteria. Theory is assessed via multiple choice exams, both paper and online, at the end of each unit.


Former students have gone on to work within the industry or have even set up their own businesses. Many are now helping to train the workforce of the future as they have also taken on apprentices of their own.
