Furniture Making - C&G Level 2 Supported Learning
About the course
Develop practical skills in a range of woodwork and furniture-making techniques. The theory of furniture construction is supplemented by a large range of practical activities. You will also have the opportunity to gain work experience.
You need GCSE grade E or above in Maths and English, with Design Technology or Art. You will need to have completed a Level 1 City & Guilds course, ideally in Basic Woodwork course.
You will learn Basic Woodworking Skills; Wood-Turning and Carving, Cabinet Making, Veneering and Marquetry. You will also study literacy and numeracy, which can lead to a qualification in Functional Skills.
You will be assessed by coursework, a portfolio of work, and your efforts during your work placement. If you complete all parts of the course successfully, you will receive a City and Guilds Certificate in Furniture Production and a qualification in Functional Skills for Maths and English.
Progression is mainly into the furniture-making or wood construction industry. You may also access further work-based training or perhaps to a Level 3 Art course.
