Practical Woodworking

Course Overview


Practical Woodworking is a course which focuses on developing an accomplished set of fine motor skills through the production of a number of assessable woodworking models. The National 4 and 5 courses are broadly similar in that the main differentiator between the two is the level of accuracy that pupils are expected to demonstrate whilst marking out, cutting out and assembling their assessment tasks.


The course comprises of three distinct units covering Flat frame construction, Carcase construction and Machining and processing.  The final task the pupils are then involved in draws upon all of these skills and will contribute 100% of the overall grade the pupils receive for the course.
