AMUSF upholstery courses timetable
The Traditional Upholstery School is one of a handful of centres approved by the Association of Master Upholsters and Soft Furnishers to provide training toward its industry-leading qualification, the AMUSF Diploma.
This professional-standard course is taught in three stages, each involving around 210 hours tuition. All our one-year courses are based around the terms of a normal school year, starting in the first week in September and running through to mid-July. Half terms and holidays follow Wiltshire’s school term dates.
AMUSF Stages 1, 2
AMUSF Stage 1 can be studied in the single academic year from 8th September 2020 to July 2021, attending on Tuesdays.
Students of this course can then proceed to study Stage 2 on Tuesdays from September 2021 to July 2022.
Looking ahead: Students enrolling on Stage 1 starting in September 2021 will study on Mondays, with the subsequent Stage 2 training beginning in September 2022 also being on Monday. Following courses continue in this pattern with alternate year groups running on Mondays and Tuesdays.
AMUSF Stages 3 - Diploma
The final AMUSF Stage 3 diploma will run on Wednesdays from September to July, every year.
Note that we are already taking bookings for September 2020. Click here to apply for further info and to get the ball rolling.
Come and visit us... we'd love to see you
The coronavirus crisis has meant that we have made changes to our usual enrolment system for the AMUSF diploma courses. Instead of our open morning, which had been scheduled for 30th April, we are now organising one-to-one meetings for everyone who is interested in learning more about the AMUSF Diploma. The idea is that you can pop in and see us, ideally at the end of a teaching day when you can have our undivided attention still get a feel for the school.
We’ll explain what's involved in the courses, how we teach them and show you examples of the upholstery skills and projects you will be learning. Information packs and enrollment forms will be available too. Do email us if you would like to come along, and we'll fix up a time that works best. We are looking forward to hearing from you. Thank you.
"Mondays were always my favourite day of the week. The tutors
are knowledgable and great fun too. I made friends for life on my course."
