Wood Machining Diploma Level 2 at Moulton College

Course description

This course introduces furniture making techniques and tools and will allow you to undertake simple initial projects and move on to more complex pieces as your skills develop. You will study timber technology, technical drawing, upholstery, design and furniture history as well as finishing and polishing techniques.

Course content

Professional and vocational qualifications lead to accreditation, be it from an examining body, such as City & Guilds or Edexcel, or professional recognition, such as from Construction Skills or Lantra. The Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) recognises vocational achievement through the attainment of credits for units of study and for whole qualifications. The smallest qualification is the Award, then the Certificate, and the largest is the Diploma, although there are other intermediate qualifications also available. The duration of study will typically reflect the size of the qualification.

Entry requirements

Four GCSEs at D-E or above and a strong interest in making furniture

Assessment

Vocational and professional qualifications are taught through college based theory and practical lessons with further learning and understanding developed via directed self-study. Assessment consists of internally set coursework and assignments, although some professional and vocational qualifications may require the achievement of externally set assessments.

Future opportunities

Students generally progress onto a higher level of Furniture Studies course, move into a job with training (such as an apprenticeship) or move into full time employment.
