Level 1 Furniture Making (ITO)

Course Description

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.
