Why this apprenticeship?
Do you like working in a hands-on environment? Do you like learning in a more practical way? Are you a hard worker? If so, the construction industry might be for you!
The Carpentry and Joinery Level 2 Apprenticeship is a recognised qualification across the construction sector.
You will spend one day a week (20% of your time) with Hull Training and Adult Education and the rest of the week with your employer.
You would learn the basics of joinery and once your skills have been developed you will move on to more advanced skills.
You need to be aged 16 years and over
GCSE’s at grades 9 – 4 in maths and English (A – C)
You do not need any prior joinery qualifications but you do need to be employed to start this course.
If you are not employed then we can help look for an employer or the level 1 might be a great starting point for you.
What qualifications will I achieve?
Learners who successfully complete this apprenticeship will be awarded with a:
- Level 2 Standard in Carpentry and Joinery
You will also work towards gaining your CSCS Card (Health and Safety)
You may have to continue working on your English and maths if you did not get a 4 or above at GCSE, we have a dedicated team who will support you to gain those qualifications.
During this course you will learn a full range of skills that a qualified joiner needs including:
- Health safety and welfare in construction
- First fix joinery (stud walls, door frames, staircases)
- Second fix joinery (skirting, architraves, stair components, kitchens, doors)
- Structural joinery (joists and roofs)
- Carpentry repairs
- Moving and handling
You will work towards gaining an apprenticeship standard. The apprenticeship standard contains a list of skills, knowledge and behaviours you will need to have learnt by the end of your apprenticeship. Standards are occupation focused; they are not qualification-led. The learning happens throughout the apprenticeship, and you are assessed at the end of your apprenticeship. It is at this point you will need to prove you can carry out all aspects of the job. This is called the end-point assessment (EPA).
