Our Level 2 (Intermediate) Site Carpentry Apprenticeship is a nationally recognised course involving the use of intermediate carpentry techniques and training, offering you the opportunity to gain hands on industry experience.

The qualification for a Site Carpenter consists of a college based diploma study programme of practical training, assessment and theory based study of underpinning knowledge alongside work based NVQ evidence.

The framework covers installation and maintenance of the following elements:

  • Roof structures; floor structures, windows, doors and associated ironmongery, stairs, kitchen units, mouldings, cladding and encasement of services
  • Setting up and using transportable saw and shaping machines

These elements have been identified by employers as the foundation for a competent tradesperson.

What will I do?

As an Apprentice, you will receive on-the-job training at your workplace and attend day release training at Boston College.

The Level 2 (Intermediate) Site Carpentry Apprenticeship consists of several elements, which have been identified by employers as the foundation for a competent craftsperson.

  • Diploma in Site Carpentry (knowledge based qualification)
  • Diploma in Site Wood Occupations (skills based qualification)
  • English and Maths (Functional skills based qualification)

The Apprenticeship framework consists of several elements, which have been identified by employers as an appropriate set of skills to operate in their chosen job role.

These elements are:
Maths - Level 1 or Level 2 Functional Skills, unless an equivalent qualification has already been achieved.

English - Level 1 or Level 2 Functional Skills, unless an equivalent qualification has already been achieved.

ICT - Level 1 or Level 2 is a requirement of some Apprenticeships unless an equivalent qualification has already been achieved.

Vocational Element (Knowledge) - most Apprenticeship frameworks include off-the-job study for a technical certificate, which is usually done at College.

Vocational Element (Competence) - all Apprenticeships include on-the-job training and assessment leading to a competence based vocational qualification.

On some frameworks, the knowledge and competence elements are combined into one qualification.

The entry qualifications for the Level 2 (Intermediate) Site Carpentry Apprenticeship are one GCSE at grade 4 or above (Old GCSE grade C or above) and two GCSEs at grades 3 or above (Old GCSE grade D or above) in English, Maths and Science (or equivalent).

If you are concerned about meeting the entry requirements, our Carpentry and Joinery Diploma Level 1 course may be more suitable for you. Visit the Carpentry and Joinery page for more information.

The Site Carpentry Apprenticeship will take you two years to complete. You will study at College for one day a week, and 4 days with your employer.

As an Apprentice, you will pay no course fees. However, your employer may have to pay towards your training as well as providing you with a wage (please see below).
