T Level in Carpentry & Joinery Level 3
Mon Sep 04 2023
Day / Time
This course is suitable for anyone wanting a career in construction, specifically focussing on carpentry and joinery.
You will be working with local carpentry companies throughout the region looking at the various types of work undertaken by time served carpenters and joiners.
You'll gain an understanding of the onsite industry and the sector covering topics such as health and safety, construction science principles and sustainability in the construction industry.
During the course you'll prepare and plan for the production of complex timber based products and gain knowledge and skills in design, measurement and calculations of quantities, as well as the production of a method statement and risk assessment. You'll also build upon your numerical skills to produce cutting lists and material lists to minimise wastage.
The opportunities you will gain through your taught sessions in college and your experience whilst on work placement will support you in gaining a career or an apprenticeship within the construction industry.
As the course is a T Level, you’ll also undertake 315 hours of work placement putting into practice what you’ve learnt in the classroom. Working with some of the region’s key employers, you’ll get a taste of what it’s like to work onsite.
The T Level is a full-time two-year programme.
Core components will be assessed through two externally set exams and an employer set project. There'll also be a skills-related project which you'll be assessed on.
UCAS tariff points will be allocated and will be equivalent in value to three A Levels. This will be dependent on the overall grade achieved.
You will need GCSEs at grade 6 in maths, English and a science.
You will also need to be able to commit to an industry placement of at least 45 days and it would be beneficial to do some research into possible employers who could be willing to provide you with an industry placement for the programme.
This course is free to those aged under 19 years old.
