MTW Woodwork & Construction Studies

Materials Technology Wood (MTW)

Woodwork is one of the technology subjects offered at junior cycle. In Woodwork you will learn to design small projects and the skills required to use tools and equipment to make your designs. You will work mainly with wood but also with other materials. You will learn about wood as a material and how it is produced. The subject has strong links with other technical subjects - technical graphics and metalwork. It also has links with Maths, Art, Science, Wellbeing and Literacy & Numeracy.

What is the MTW Junior Certificate exam like?

There are two parts to the exam:

  • coursework - you will design a project based on a given design brief (instructions). You will then make the project and prepare a project folder to accompany it (66%)
  • written examination - there will be a two hour written paper which examines the woodwork theory you have learned over the three years (33%)

You can take the exam at Higher or at Ordinary Level. When the time comes to decide, your teacher will help you choose the level that suits you best.
