The broad purpose of the apprenticeship is working with building materials (most often wood) to create and install building components. This typically involves shaping and cutting materials, installing finished materials like partitions, doors, staircases, window frames, moldings, timber floor coverings, and erecting structural components such as floor joists and roofs. All work needs to be carried out safely, using the appropriate tools and to the quality specified.
This apprenticeship includes two different options and people will either work on a construction site as a Site Carpenter or in a workshop as an Architectural Joiner.
A Site Carpenter will prepare and install basic building components e.g. doors, straight staircases, walls, and floor units, and erect structural carpentry and roof structures on a building site or on domestic and commercial premises.
An Architectural Joiner will produce building components by setting out, marking out, and manufacturing basic architectural products, including doors, windows, straight staircases, and associated ironmongery.
