What will the apprentice be doing?

As a carpentry apprentice you will learn all aspects of carpentry and joinery as well as building and construction work.

Some duties will include:

  • How to measure, cut and build using materials
  • Working with wood on a day to day basis and must be precise with all of your work
  • You will be expected to be willing to learn and take direction well and you must have good attention to detail

The successful apprentice will learn other aspects of the building and construction trade to enhance and develop your knowledge. You will also learn all aspects of carpentry within commercial and residential environments, whilst working towards achieving their level 2 apprenticeship.

What training will the apprentice take and what qualification will the apprentice get at the end?

The Apprenticeship in Carpentry consists of:

  • Level 2 Carpentry & Joinery Apprenticeship Standard (Site)
    Construction Skills Health, Safety and Environment test – CSCS Test

As part of the apprenticeship programme, attendance is required at our Skills Group training centre for one day per week. All other aspects of the qualification will be delivered on-site by the employer.

You will have regular visits every six to eight weeks from your designated Skills Group assessor, who will monitor your progress during your apprenticeship training.

Whilst at the Skills Group training centre, you will learn the necessary skills and gain experience to help you throughout your role. Part of your training will be knowledge and theory based, whilst the rest will be practical.

As an additional qualification you will also achieve your Emergency First Aid and Health and Safety Certificate, along with Internet Safety and Safeguarding.

As part of your apprenticeship Skills Group will also support you to complete your online CSCS test, which will enable you to apply for your CSCS Card. This shows that you are at the required competent level to carry out site work with the employer.
