How to apply for the 12 week Furniture Making/Advanced

All potential students for the 12 week Furniture Making courses are asked to send a simple cv before attending an interview, when you will be taken on a tour of the Academy.  Your visit gives you the opportunity to see the workshops and what work is being produced, in addition to meeting students on courses and seeing the accommodation.  You will then discuss why you want to join the course, what you hope to achieve on it and what you hope to do with your skills at the end of the course.  You have the opportunity to ask about any aspect of joining the Academy.

The process is very much the same for the 12 week Advanced Furniture Making course, however, we ask that applicants can demonstrate that they have reached level 3 by bringing some work to their interview.

The interview process is constructed to give you a feel for the work and life of the Academy, so that you can make an informed decision about whether the training, intensive and highly practical, is appropriate for you.

Your visit will last between 1-2 hours.  If you are a suitable candidate the Principal will offer you a place and give you an application form at the end of your interview (application forms for longer courses are not available online).

Please telephone us on 01297 445545 or email office@boatbuildingacademy.com to make an appointment for interview.

If people are unable to visit, we will conduct a telephone/Skype interview at a mutually agreed time. If the interview is satisfactory you will be offered a place on the course and sent an booking form.
