IBTC Portsmouth

International Boatbuilding Training College Portsmouth are delighted to be sponsoring the 2020 West Woods Fair.

We are a traditional wooden boatbuilding training college, based in the heart of Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard. Our experienced instructors teach traditional and modern boatbuilding techniques: sophisticated skills that allow you to take your woodworking hobby to the next level or prepare you for a successful career in boatbuilding, furniture making or related industries.

We welcome students of all ages and from all backgrounds. Prior experience is not essential for our courses; attention to detail and a willingness to work hard are what really counts.

Students can join our 12 week joinery or 1 year Boatbuilding course. Both courses are full-time and very hands-on. Our successful 1 year students are awarded the internationally recognised IBTC Practical Diploma in Wooden Boatbuilding and may also take a Level 3 City and Guilds (2463) Marine Construction qualification.

If you want to learn more, come and chat with us at our stand. You can also see our students at work on weekdays in Boathouse 4, Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, or book a place on one of our free Open Afternoons.
