Level 1 Building and Construction
This programme will deal with the building and cabinet making industry. This course emphasizes practical work rather than theory. Students construct projects and develop competency with some workshop machinery, power tools and hand tools. Quality of finish and attention to detail is encouraged, and process and technique are taught.
Practical skills such as drawing, plan reading, measuring and finishing will be taught. Assessment is by use of BCITO (trade) unit standards. However, some achievement standards are also available.
