Carpentry

If you enjoy working with timber and want to put your practical skills to good use, or you want to learn basic woodworking techniques or more complex structures, consider one of our many carpentry and joinery course options. Our tutors have worked in the industry and training is in a dedicated, industry standard facility with adjacent classrooms and computer facilities and provides a link between practical and knowledge based aspects of the courses.

A typical route for students is to progress from the Level 1 Diploma to Level 2 Diploma, then to a Level 3 Diploma or into employment or an Apprenticeship.

Level 2 Bench Joinery
Previous school: Belvidere School

My Dad is a carpenter and I help him out, but I would eventually like to have my own business. There is good machinery at SCG and the teachers are skilled – it is a great place to get on with your projects. I have enjoyed all the curved work we have done and I created a window frame with the skills I learnt.

I came to study at here because it was highly recommended. The teachers are currently helping me work towards the SkillBuild competition, which means doing extra projects in my spare time.

Level 3 Bench Joinery
Previous Institution: Thomas Adams School

I grew up around carpentry as it was my Grandad’s profession and I want to join the Royal Engineers, so this subject is right for me. I really enjoy the visualisation that comes with bench joinery, being able to see a product and know that you can create it yourself.
