You can't. Not with wood chips. They take too long to compost, and if you use them partially composted, then the continuing rotting will suck the nitrogen out of the soil.

Layering is good. IMO turning or stirring the pile to aerate will make it rot down more quickly, but I'm not an exert at this so will watch for better replies.
