Course Information for Students
Who is this course for?
This course is suitable if you have a keen interest in wood occupations, with a focus on site carpentry, and have met the entry requirements.
You should have successfully completed an appropriate Level 1 qualification within the trade area, and have achieved grade 3 GCSE or the equivalent in Maths and grade 2 or the equivalent in English.
What will you learn?
Having already completed a suitable Level 1 qualification, you will be trained and assessed in the following topics:
The core subjects can be transferred to other construction courses, once achieved:
- Health, safety and welfare in the workplace
- Principles of construction, building and communication
Trade specific subjects:
- The principles of construction
- Structural carpentry
- Non-structural carpentry prior to plastering
- Non-structural carpentry following plastering
- Timber technology and the use of circular saws
Employers hosting work experience placements will be involved in elements of training and assessment as part of the course. Your training will focus on a synoptic assessment, which will test your ability in both practical and theory elements.
How will you learn?
You will learn on-site, in the classroom and in the practical workshop. There may be some requirement to complete work online, but this will be kept to a minimum.
While we make every endeavour to run programmes as advertised, we reserve the right to cancel those which do not enrol sufficient numbers to make them viable.
What will you need to bring with you?
You will need to supply your own basic stationery, notebook, padlock, safety footwear, work trousers and safety glasses.
You will also be required to purchase a Derby College Group sweat shirt and polo shirt once you have started the course.
As you progress through the course, there is an expectation that you will purchase a basic tool kit once you are settled into your studies.
How will you be assessed?
A range of assessment methods will be used throughout the course:
- A portfolio of ongoing training and assessment in both practical and theory work, which will be graded for quality and content
- Synoptic assessment of both practical and theory within the first six months
- Final skills assessment which will be graded against set criteria
- Final knowledge assessment in the form of a multiple-choice exam
There is the potential to enter an apprenticeship in site carpentry, progress to the Level 3 programme or progress to the Level 2 architectural joinery courses, either full time or as an apprentice.
