Level 2 Bench Joinery
Previous Institution: Ercall Wood School
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.
