Course Content: FCA Course Joinery student's start with this level 1 (introduction) course which is based around ??-Bench Joinery' and its main function is to enable students to develop joinery skills with close attention to detail. The intention being that once individuals have developed this attention to detail by working on the bench, they can easily transfer those skills to other woodworking occupations or situations. To be successful on the FCA course (and be eligible to progress to the more advanced ICA) students will complete a portfolio and undertake an external multi-choice on line test. A portfolio of evidence records satisfactory achievement of standards in the following units: Wood jointing techniques Maintain and use woodworking hand tools Preparation and use of portable power tools Contribute to providing working platforms Contribute to work relationships Handle and store resources The on line multi choice assessment is undertaken in the spring and consists of a City and Guilds level 1 carpentry and joinery test. ICA Course After completion of the FCA most students choose to progress to this level 2 intermediate award where the introductory skills are extended by the manufacture of joinery components. Again the course is based around bench joinery with particular emphasis on ??-paying attention to details'. Again once these skills have been developed they can be transferred to other wood occupations such as site carpentry and joinery. Of particular note for this level 2 ICA course is the relationship to the ??-employer related NVQ level 2'. Further information on this relationship can be found in the leaflet ??-Adult Students Returning to Study in Construction Occupations' To be successful on the ICA course (and be eligible to use the portfolio as the bases of an NVQ portfolio) students will complete the said portfolio, undertake a timed practical test, undertake a health and safety test and an external multi-choice on line test. A portfolio of evidence records satisfactory achievement of standards in the following units: Manufacture joinery products - including setting out rods and mark out products Set up and use portable power tools Contribute to efficient working practices Erect and dismantle working platforms Store resources ready for use The on line multi choice assessments are undertaken in the spring and consists of a health and safety test (the same as that undertaken by construction workers applying for a CSCS card) and a City and Guilds level 2 carpentry and joinery test.
