Level 1 Furniture Making (ITO)
Teacher in Charge: Miss C. Penfold
This course is a trade related course. Students develop practical furniture making skills using hand and machine tools common to the trade. Credits go towards a New Zealand Certificate in Furniture Making.
The units focus on health and safety, accuracy and quality of finish. Independence within the workshop and confidence is a significant part of assessment.
This course prepares students for trade based apprenticeships. We recommend this to be a 2 year course with students continuing the course on in Year 12 building on skills learnt at year 11. See the Competenz link below for more information.
