Construction units can include erecting a fence, using power tools, introduction to carpentry, an introduction to brick laying, fitting a door, laying a path, health and safety, painting and decoration. These can be tailored to the individuals needs and interests. The AQA Awards Qualification allows pupils to build on their knowledge and undertake units in Personal Action Planning, Health and Safety, Employability and CV writing and an introduction to Carpentry and Joinery to achieve a meaningful and worthwhile qualification.


Construction Room, Woodwork Room, Bricklaying external area and IT Lab.

The aim is to develop the types of skills, knowledge and understanding that might lead to potential employment in the trades or come in handy as DIY skills at home, helping save money and take care of a future home.


Pupils have the opportunity to undertake accredited vocational skill courses in construction, undertaking either AQA Unit Awards, then progressing to the further qualifications developing a specialism in certain areas of construction. Pupils undertake projects in construction and trade skills, such as Carpentry, Bricklaying, Plumbing, Decorating, Tiling and Plastering. We also encourage and support pupils through work experience opportunities so that they have the chance to develop their skills further and become work ready.
