Students complete Certificate 1 in Furnishing (MSF10113) as a VET subject delivered at Henley HS, as part of the Western Area Regional Trade School in partnership with TAFE SA.
The VET Furniture Construction program was developed to provide students with the required knowledge and skills to transition into the Furniture & Shop Fitting Industry. Students actively develop an understanding of traditional and contemporary construction methods, an understanding of workshop procedures and processes and the ability to work independently in a traditional wood work setting. Students complete a wide range of projects to further develop their use of materials, tools and the safe operation of a wide range of machinery.
The qualification, nationally recognised by industry has students complete 8 units of competency, which then provides them with additional SACE credit.
Kyle, Peter, Nathan and Aaron were among 12 students who successfully completed the course in 2015 and received their TAFE SA parchments. In 2016, another 11 students have begun this course at Henley HS.
VET programmes such as this offer students the chance to experience competency based training that can take them into a vocational pathway or provide them with practical skills and experience as a pre cursor to tertiary studies at Registered Training Organisations or Universities.
