  • Is this course for you?

    The aim of the Short ‘n’ Sharp course is to develop the basic employment skills, practical skills and knowledge required in order to become a competent and employable carpenter. In only 12 weeks!

    It’s about preparing you to meet the needs of employers and preparing you to work in the industry. The course consists of practical and theoretical elements, and both parts of the course need to be successfully completed to achieve this qualification. Employers will expect good attendance, good behaviour and good communication skills enabling you to interact with clients, work safely, use initiative as well as having carpentry and joinery skills.

    As the programme progresses, you will build upon your skills in preparation for the practical assessments and knowledge tests. The programme will prepare you for employment as a skilled crafts person. A large part of the programme is project based allowing you to acquire practical skills and job-related knowledge. As a college we will be reinforcing the values expected in industry to give you the skills to be successful in work and life.

  • Required qualifications

    Successful completion of a level 1 ‘Short n Sharp’ or a level 1 diploma in Carpentry & Joinery.

  • What skills will I develop?

    As a carpentry and joinery student you will develop practical skills with underpinning knowledge in a variety of topics:

    • Principles of building

    • Site first fixing (joists, stud walls, etc.)
    • Site second fixing (architraves, skirtings, doors)
