Carpentry and Joinery, Apprenticeship

This carpentry and joinery apprenticeship gives you the opportunity to learn carpentry skills, earn a wage, and gain valuable work experience in the industry. You will be employed by a carpenter or building contractor and work alongside an experienced tradesperson to develop and practise your skills.

You will attend College for one day a week to learn the theoretical side of your trade. You will learn about first and second fixing operations and erecting structural carcasses (site carpentry). We will also work with you to develop your English and maths skills to the level that most employers in the construction industry are looking for.

How will I be assessed?

The end-point assessment consists of two key elements. The knowledge assessment consists of 40 questions designed to assess your understanding of the specific knowledge and behavioural requirements, while the practical assessment is a skills test.

What could I do after this course?

Most of our apprentices are kept on by their employers at the end of their programme. You could choose to increase your skills with a Carpentry and Joinery Advanced Apprenticeship or Weston College’s Level 3 Site Carpentry Diploma. Upon completion you are then eligible to apply for the Blue skilled worker CSCS card required to work on large construction projects.


Entry Requirements

A minimum of five GCSEs at grade 9-2 with at least two at grade 4, or a qualifying Level 1 qualification. You will also need to be in relevant employment, but we can help you find this.
