Looking for a career in blacksmithing or just have a passion for it? This course is designed for students who wish to undertake a farriery apprenticeship but do not have the necessary qualifications to progress onto an apprenticeship course. This is not only a useful skill development qualification, but it is also a suitable progression for students wishing to continue blacksmithing at a higher level. You will work to gain your NPTC forge work and NVQ level 2 qualifications together with English and maths.
Having successfully completed and passed this course, you may be eligible to progress onto a farriery apprenticeship with one of the three national colleges (subject to their entry requirements). You will also have to find your own approved training farriery.
