Construction

“It is good for the soul to create with our hands.” This is probably why some trade workers, including those working in construction, plumbing and electricity, are some of the happiest in the UK according to a new survey.

Course Overview

You will conduct some research around an idea that you are interested in, and then design and make a furniture product. Initially in the taught sessions you will develop joinery skills by creating a 'set model' featuring a range of joints, and methods; you will then progress to building your own simple piece of furniture within the sessions, with guidance and support from the tutor.

Entry Requirements

Some basic practical experience of handling tools and working with wood is desirable, but not essential.

Student Finance (Degree-Level Courses)

Whether you qualify for student finance depends on specific criteria. The main student finance package for full-time students includes a tuition fee loan and maintenance loan for living costs. Part-time students can access a tuition fee loan to pay for your course. Generally, you will only get student finance if you’re doing your first degree-level qualification. This is true even if your previous course was self-funded. For further information please see www.gov.uk/student-finance.

The Access to Learning Fund is a non-repayable discretionary fund that gives students facing hardship extra financial support to access and remain in higher education. This can is accessed via the college. Please speak to Student Services for more information.
