Industrial Technology - Timber

100 hour course (1 year)

This 1-year course is a perfect introduction to the timber unit that teaches students how to safely use a variety of hand and power tools. This is an engaging unit that consists majorly of practical lessons, where the goal over the course of the year is to create 3 different projects. Within these projects are advanced joinery techniques that enable students to learn precision, patience, and craftsmanship.

Definite Pros

  • A great introduction into the timber industry and learning how to use woodworking tools and equipment safely.

200 hour course (2 year)

This course is excellent for students looking to build on their knowledge and skills from the 100-hour course. This is also a great opportunity for students to be introduced to the timber industry and the possible career paths that it offers.

Students learn about the importance of sustainability in the industry and how to build projects using sustainable methods. This 2-year unit continues to build upon the experiences of each student, introducing them to a large variety of skills and techniques used in a number of projects.

Definite Pros

  • Students in the 200 hour course will experience multiple projects using timber technology and gain increasing confidence in the woodwork workshop.
  • Students maximise sustainability with timber and work independently on challenging timber projects.
