Qualification Description

This qualification describes the skills and knowledge required to perform design of furniture and the application of the design into a finished furniture product. This qualification is streamed to reflect three complementary occupational outcomes in the areas of:

  • Fine furniture making - with a focus on skills required to design and produce individual fine furniture for display or custom production.
  • Furniture design - with a focus on skills required to design furniture for volume production.
  • Furniture production - with a focus on purchasing, quality assurance and specialist techniques

This is a senior qualification with scope for entry from relevant trade and non-trade backgrounds.

This qualification is typically used to develop skills and a breadth, depth and complexity of knowledge in a range of furniture making, design and production techniques. The work would cover a broad range of varied activities or applications in a wide variety of contexts, most of which are complex and non-routine. Leadership and guidance would be involved when organising self and others as well as contributing to technical solutions of a non-routine or contingency nature.

There are no specific licences that relate to this qualification. However, depending on the jurisdiction, licensing or regulatory requirements may apply to the use of some units in this qualification. Local regulations should be checked for details.

Entry Requirements

There are no entry requirements for this qualification.
