“Carpentry and joinery involves using timber products to create and install building components”

The carpentry and joinery apprenticeship will train you to carry out skilled work, primarily using timber products, either on a construction site or in a workshop, to create and install building components. As a site carpenter, you’ll normally work on a building site or in domestic and commercial premises, preparing and fixing building components, from the initial erection of a new building, through to the installation of all necessary fixtures and fittings. On the carpentry and joinery apprenticeship, you’ll also carry out a range of repair and maintenance activities. As an architectural joiner, you’ll be employed in a workshop producing timber-based building components and other architectural products, such as doors, windows, units and staircases, which are then transported to construction sites to be installed by site carpenters.
