Highly recommend the course! I had almost no experience working with wood, after the week with Woodchix I feel that I could comfortably deliver content to my classes. Well worth doing.

Gill from Woodchix was amazing, very knowledgeable in the school based landscape, and provided a range of practical skills that allowed me to teach Stage 4 and 5 wood technology with more confidence than I had before. This course is definitely one that I highly recommend with a range of skills that were taught throughout the week!
