This competition will not be running this year
The Foundation Skills Basic Woodworking competition is for learners working towards a career in woodworking. Woodworkers prepare, cut, fit and assemble wood for things such as building frameworks, doors, and windows on both commercial and residential projects.
The Foundation Skills competitions have been created to showcase the skills of students with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), additional learning needs (ALN), or who require additional support for learning (ASL), who are currently undertaking a course with an FE or training provider at Entry level or level 1.
These competitions provide opportunities for students and learners to develop their vocational skills, wider skills for work, personal, social and independence skills.
