WHO IS THIS FOR?

This apprenticeship standard is an ideal programme for those wishing to develop their skilled work, primarily using timber products, either on a construction site, or in a workshop, creating and installing building components. 

A site carpenter will normally work on a building site, or in domestic and commercial premises, preparing and fixing building components, from the initial erection of a new building, through to the installation of all necessary fixtures and fittings, as well as a range of repair and maintenance activities.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

This apprenticeship is delivered through a combination of planned learning sessions, workplace visits, on and off the job training and 1 to 1 support. 

It covers areas such as:

  • Understanding the characteristics, quality, uses, sustainability, limitations and defects associated with timber and timber-based products and components, such as hardwood, softwood, MDF and other materials
  • How to install doors, window frames, door and hatch linings, floor joist coverings, straight partitions and straight staircases
  • Erect inclined roofs with gables, joists, roof coverings and roof components
  • Understanding the technical principles of site carpentry work and how these are applied to prepare and fix timber and timber-based products, erect inclined roofs, maintain and repair building components

END POINT ASSESSMENT & PROGRESSION

This apprenticeship includes an end point assessment consisting of:

  • Knowledge assessment
  • Practical skills test

You could progress onto the Advanced Apprenticeship Standard in Carpentry and Joinery Level 3.  The achievement of this standard will meet the requirements of the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) ‘Skilled Worker’ standard, which is widely accepted in the sector as a ‘licence to operate’ in a skilled construction trade.
