Construction is one of the broadest Apprenticeships available, covering a range of occupations from Carpentry and Joinery and plant maintenance to civil engineering, building anything from a housing estate to a bridge. Carpenters and Joiners are required to build and install a wide range of wood products. Many carpenters train in one area and use their skills to develop into the more specialised areas later.
One day a week at our Tottenham Centre or Enfield Centre and the rest of the time working closely with an employer.
Average Duration: The apprenticeship runs for 24 months
The Intermediate Carpentry and Joinery Apprenticeship is made up of a framework which includes:
- Wood Occupation NVQ Diploma Level 2
- Site Carpentry Diploma Level 2
- Maths Functional Skills Level 1
- English Functional Skills Level 1
- Employment Rights and Responsibilities
Students can progress on to full time employment or Advanced Apprenticeships in carpentry and joinery.
The apprentice is expected to attend college to attain knowledge training, complete exams and complete workshop tasks. In addition to that they will also be trained by the employer and expected to complete an online e-portfolio.
Applicants will be assessed and interviewed to demonstrate that they are able to cover the range required by the relevant NVQ at work. In addition, the apprentices are expected to carry out initial assessments in English and Maths where they would be expected to ideally achieve Level 2 in both subject areas. If an apprentice has GCSE grade C and above in English and Maths then they do not have to do functional skills as a part of the apprenticeship.
How to apply
You can apply through the college application. Once you have applied to the college, you will be invited for an interview at the college and also with the potential employer.
