This course is ideal if you are looking to enter the building industry and pursue a career in bench joinery, wood machining or furniture productions.


This practical hand-on based course will provide you with an understanding of the bench joinery industry and how it is used widely throughout the construction industry. Theory lessons will develop your understanding of health and safety knowledge and communication in the sector. To be a good joiner, you need to have excellent hand eye co-ordination and a focus on accuracy.

Theory lessons are designed to develop the skills you have learnt in the workshops. You will learn about different building methods and construction technology, as well as about the importance of working safely. As many of our students have a desire to be self-employed, we support this by showing you how to plan jobs and the importance of organisation in running a business.

Bench joinery is the preparation, setting out and manufacturing of joinery components. Throughout the course, you will learn how to make doors and doorframes, window frames and staircases. Your skills will be further developed by learning to work on shaping curved components and assembling bespoke bench joinery pieces to a client brief.
