North Harbour Campus
For students who have previously achieved a Level 2 qualification in carpentry and who wish to progress to the next level.
You will complete a minimum of 30 hours of on-the-job experience within the industry and have the opportunity to work on many live projects in the community. In recent years, carpentry students helped to convert a double-decker bus into a much-needed shelter for local homeless people. You will also benefit from site visits, industry talks and demonstrations from experts.
A minimum of five GCSEs at grade 4 or above, including English, plus a Level 2 Standard/NVQ (apprentice qualified).
Learning and assessment will combine both theory and practical sessions. You will also complete two online exams. You will log your learning journey in a diploma portfolio folder. All elements must be completed to successfully achieve the diploma.
Attendance is one day a week. Typical hours would be 9am-4.30pm. A high level of attendance is necessary in order to successfully achieve the qualification.
You can enter or progress in the workplace.
