Course Summary: This apprenticeship involves carrying out advanced skilled work, primarily using timber products, either on a construction site, or in a workshop, creating and installing building components.

These tasks would include preparing and installing complex and often bespoke building components e.g. high quality doors, shaped linings, staircases with turns, complex wall and floor units, erecting bespoke structural carpentry (inclined roofs and joists) and erecting complex roof structures (e.g. inclined roofs with hips, valleys and dormers). The apprentice will complete an End Point Assessment to demonstrate that they can perform knowledge, skills and behaviours in their occupation.
