About the course

This occupation is found in both the new build and refurbishment construction sector. The construction industry is central to creating the homes, schools, hospitals, energy and transport infrastructure society needs. There is growing demand for carpenters and joiners to help meet the need for the transition to modern methods of construction, heritage projects and sustainability.

The broad purpose of the occupation is working with wood-based materials and associated products to create and install complex building components. This typically involves shaping and cutting materials, installing finished materials like complex or decorative components. All work needs to be carried out safely, using the appropriate tools and to the quality specified.
