Discover the learning experience and opportunities you can expect from this course.

Our bench joinery course will give you industry focussed, practical training where you will learn how to manufacturer stairs, doors and frames. Bench joinery is predominantly a more workshop-based trade, where you make and prepare materials for installation on a construction site. You will learn how to interpret drawings, diagrams and specifications for you to carefully set out and mark out onto timber. You will be constructing items of architectural joinery, including: doors, door and window frames, stair, linings and fitments in units. To develop your experience with the tools, you will learn about timber products and be able to cut timber and manufactured boards. A key part of the course is to learn how to set up and operate a circular saw. You will be trained on how to use this safely, maintain and change blades.
