Carpentry and Joinery Level 2 Diploma at Blackburn College

Course description

The Level 2 Diploma in Carpentry & Joinery is designed to develop the skills and knowledge of people, enabling them to work in the industry in their chosen craft. It has been specifically developed for delivery in a training environment using simulated conditions, and the test/s are based on the learner showing what they can do as an individual through the completion of all the requirement of the qualification.

Students on the programme have recently taken part in a range of activities which have included working in conjunction with the 'Habitat for Humanity' project; a project founded to enable local people with housing needs to build and own their own homes. Students have travelled to Liverpool to work on real-life building projects and gain real world skills to help in their future employment.

Course content

The qualification comprises:

  • General core units
  • Occupation specific units
  • Practical assignment
  • Online testing of knowledge

Entry requirements

You will need GCSE Grade D in Maths, English and the successful completion of Diploma Level 1 Carpentry and Joinery or equivalent.


These will consist of individual unit multi-choice tests and a summative end exam which again will be multi-choice. The practical skills will be assessed on a continual basis with a final test piece set by CCA.

Future opportunities

The Level 3 Diploma in Carpentry & Joinery is the logical choice, but you may wish to choose employment first before progressing onto Level 3.
