Regeneration of the Wood section Growth of new areas within Wood Occupation. Furniture Making /Restoration, Furniture Manufacturing & kitchen manufacturing & installation Justification/Objectives Carpentry & Joinery was a cash cow but now in decline due to economic downturn. Need to attract new income. Woodworking Machinery within SERC is also in decline. SERC has a range of staff that could deliver other aspects of wood occupations.

implications and impact of the project on SERC If this project is successful it will generate income for SERC Teaching staff will be engaged using existing skills on new teaching hours It has helped me focus on alternative options for income revenue generation. It has created a buzz in terms of a new type of work It has identified other areas to be investigated further (Kitchen fitting/Furniture Mft) It has also identified a need for collaboration with other sections of SERC
