But it’s never because you are weak. You have the potential to push yourself, you just have to want to. Exercising doesn’t have to be a chore. Embrace it, enjoy it and reap the rewards!

Furniture has evolved and changed with the times, some styles have remained constant throughout the years, while others have drastically changed or become obsolete. We offer two ways to train in furniture design and making, either full-time at college or part-time as an apprentice. You may wish to start full-time and build your skills and confidence before moving on to an apprenticeship. Whatever your prior knowledge or experience, we can offer you a starting point on the road to a creative and rewarding career. If you do decide to take the apprenticeship route you will work with an employer in the furniture making sector, while attending college on a day release basis. If you are interested in the apprenticeship route, our recruitment team can help you get started.
