Carpentry and Joinery (Site Joinery) Level 2 Diploma

I like my course because I get to use the high quality power tools and equipment in the workshop which give me a wide range of skills which will help to further my progress in this trade.

Construction Student of the Year, Harry Wilson won the award because he has proved to be a fantastic worker.
Harry chose to study at the college because he had an interest in carpentry and after looking on the college’s website he saw that there were good facilities and it was local to where he lives.

He said: “I was very surprised to hear that I had won Construction Student of the Year as I was unaware that I had even been put forward for such an award, however on hearing that I had won I felt very proud and overjoyed. I like my course because I get to use the high quality power tools and equipment in the workshop which give me a wide range of skills which will help to further my progress in this trade.”

Harry’s tutor said: “Harry has been outstanding in all areas. His work has gained him a distinction because he takes his time and enjoys his work. Harry is a fantastic worker.”

Harry commented: “From the theory side of the course we get to learn about a wide range of different topics including health & safety, principles of work and topics just specific to carpentry such as how to use different tools and different materials.  From the practical side we get to learn how to use said tools hands-on and how to use different types of materials for certain projects, which I find very interesting as I will need to know this for when I am on site.

“My greatest achievement so far has been building my frame as part of my end of year assessment, I was granted a distinction.”
Harry hopes to gain a Level 2 Apprenticeship and eventually become a fully qualified carpenter.

He said: “I would like to teach others the skills and knowledge that I have been taught.”
