About the course

This occupation is found in both the new build and refurbishment construction sector.

There is growing demand for carpenters and joiners to help meet the need for the transition to modern methods of construction and sustainability.

Pathway 1 – Site Carpenter: will normally work on a building site, or in domestic and commercial premises, preparing and fixing building components, from the erection of a new building, through to the installation of all necessary fictures and fittings, as well as repairs and maintenance.
