Multi-Skills Level 1 at Craven College

Course description

Learn the basic skills essential for construction with this multi skills qualification and learn about different aspects of bricklaying, joinery, painting and plastering.

Bricklaying, joinery, painting and plastering are all taught in our new purpose built, industry standard Ribblehead Construction Building on our Aireville Campus, Skipton. This course has the advantage that you will learn the basics of all the trades allowing you to choose your favourite area to specialise in next year.

You will have access to a new bricklaying workshop with industry standard equipment, a well equipped joinery workshop and machine shop where you can choose between bench and site joinery, purpose made booths for painting and decorating and bespoke bays for solid plastering and plaster boarding.

Our tutors are specialist craftspeople and have many years’ experience in the construction industry in both large and small businesses with specialisms in heritage and conservation work.
