“I like that the Carpentry course has a lot of variation, and I can transfer the skills that I have learnt at College when I am working on-site in my industry placement. I have secured future employment at the company I worked for, which has really increased my confidence and knowledge in the sector.”
“The course is really different than being at school and is a lot more hands-on which I really enjoy. We have enough equipment and tools for everyone to use on our course. After passing this year, I am planning on enrolling on the Level 3 course and then going into the workplace.”
“My course is really enjoyable and it’s great to learn a valuable trade. We have all the resources that we need to work efficiently and I have really supportive tutors who offer extra help and support if we need it.”
