Practical Woodworking

Practical Woodwork gives pupils the opportunity to improve their craftsmanship through hands on workshop experience. Pupils build their skills by widening their experience with hand tools and machinery, various types of woods and finishes. Projects focus around three main areas: Flat Frame Construction, Carcase Construction and Machining and Finishing.


We aim to build pupil confidence through practical experience in the workshop following health and safety procedures to prepare pupils for future work in industry.


This course is useful for pupils seeking a career in Construction/Building Industry as well as providing life skills for home or work.


Pupils can study Practical Woodwork at National 4 and National 5.
