Carpentry and Joinery, Advanced Apprenticeship
What will I do on this course?
The Carpentry and Joinery Level 3 Apprenticeship will help take your on-the-job skills an advanced level. You’ll work alongside an experienced tradesperson to develop your new skills and attend College one day a week to learn the technical side of your trade.
You’ll learn the complex aspects of site work or joinery, including complex roofing geometry and site operations. In addition to the main units, you’ll be assessed on how you operate in a work environment, including maintaining a safe, clean, working environment and communicating with others.
How will I be assessed?
You’ll be assessed through practical skills tests, workplace observations, online tests, assignments, and a portfolio of work evidence.
What could I do after this course?
You could become a construction site manager, a carpenter with advanced skills, or you could set up your own carpentry business. You can also increase your skills with a Foundation Degree in Construction Engineering at University Centre Weston.
You’ll need to have completed a Level 2 Wood Occupations Apprenticeship and be in relevant employment, but we can help you find this.
