Teacher in Charge: Mr G. Present
This course is adapted from the Technology curriculum and has a high emphasis on producing practical projects. During the year students are introduced to a range of woodworking skills using hand tools and some of the powered equipment. Take-home assignments and different project designs support and give students the confidence to produce quality practical projects. The students learn the essential skills of marking out, cutting and assembly as well as learning to work safely at each stage of the project. This course provides a good progression for those students interested in apprenticeships in the carpentry, furniture making and architecture trades.
