Introduction to Carpentry

Carpentry at Avondale College

The Carpentry pathway at Avondale College is available from Level s 1 to 3. Students should follow this pathway with any exception being granted only at the Director’s discretion. At Level 1 and 2 students follow a B.C.A.T.s (Building, Construction and Allied Trades) courses. Credits are earned by completing a B.C.A.T.s folder of theory work and the completion of practical projects. Level 3 Students follow a Furniture-making course that is externally moderated by UNITEC. For all courses a greater weighting is allocated to theory work but practical work must meet the expected quality standard. These courses are Star funded and are free from materials fees and charges.

Able students are encouraged to follow the Gateway programme of work-placed study.  These courses are aimed at gaining pre-apprenticeship readiness for the workplace and for continuing tertiary study.
