Carpentry and Joinery Diploma

Cornwall College furniture making student, sanding wood panel If you are interested in working in the construction industry, specifically learning a wood trade we offer a choice of specialist training, in bench joinery and site carpentry. Site carpentry focuses on woodwork essential to a construction site, and includes fitting ­flooring, roofing frame installation, partition wall construction and stair building. Bench joinery is predominantly more workshop based, where you make and prepare materials for installation on a construction site.

This Level 1 course is an ideal introduction to working with wood in the construction industry if you have no prior knowledge or understanding of the trade.

We offer specialist training and qualifications in both bench joinery and site carpentry. There is opportunity to cross over between the two disciplines if you start down one path but then decide it is not right for you.

Please note: As part of your course you may be required to carry out Work Experience and/or an Industry Placement.
