An Advanced Site Carpenter normally works on a building site or in domestic and commercial premises, preparing and installing complex and often bespoke building components eg. 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 (eg. inclined roofs with hips, valleys and dormers). The occupation involves carrying out advanced skilled work, primarily using timber products, either on a construction site, or in a workshop, creating and installing building components. The advanced carpenter and joiner is able to undertake complex job tasks, requiring high levels of practical skills and knowledge, in addition to managing their own work and leading small teams.
The main differences between a Level 2 Apprenticeship and Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship is that the Advanced Carpenter/Joiner has responsibility for managing their own and other peoples work, as well as being required to complete complex and non-standard work. Examples of complex tasks include curved products, irregular joints and bespoke work.
Units could include:
Modules are taught via interactive theory sessions in the classroom, while practical sessions are delivered in the purpose-built carpentry and joinery workshop and outdoor training area. The qualification includes Level 2 English and Level 2 Maths (such as GCSE, Functional Skills or other).

The apprenticeship includes a College-based formative assessment and you must achieve a Level 3 National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) to demonstrate competency in your chosen occupation. You will be expected to collect and upload a portfolio of evidence from the workplace.
Assessment is in the workplace and through a knowledge and practical end point assessment (EPA). The EPA is intended to test your higher order skills as defined in the apprenticeship standard as developed by the Independent End-Point Assessment Organisation(s) in consultation with the employers working group.
On successful completion, you could progress to a wide range of employment opportunities or move onto full- or part-time education.
The achievement of this standard will meet the requirement of the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) Advanced Skilled Worker standard, which is widely recognised as a licence to operate in a skilled construction trade.
