Carpentry BTEC

BTEC : Construction ( Carpentry)
This is a level 2 qualification offered by BTEC in order to address the needs of pupils seeking to take a more vocational route in their studies. Pupils study 4 or 8 units over two years in order to gain either a BTEC extended first certificate in Construction or a Diploma in construction. Most of the units will be portfolio based with an external one hour exam in the Health and Safety unit at the end of year 11. Pupils work will cover:

  • The structure of the construction industry
  • Health and Safety in the workplace
  • Exploring Carpentry
  • Construction through carpentry

Those pupils who wish to study for the diploma will study extra units in year 11 covering basic plumbing operations and paper hanging operations.
