You need to be employed to start an Apprenticeship. Please visit our vacancy page or if you have an employer, please ensure you add full contact details of your employer within your application. If you are unable to secure employment, you could enrol on a full-time study programme and transfer to an Apprenticeship at a later date. Please apply for a full-time course as your second option.
An Architectural Joiner will normally be employed in a workshop producing timber based building components and other architectural products, such as doors, windows, units and staircases, which are then transported to construction sites to be installed by site carpenters.
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 1 English and Level 1 Mathematics (such as GCSE, Functional Skills or other).

The apprenticeship includes a College-based formative assessment and you must achieve a Level 2 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 completion of this standard, some apprentices may progress onto the Advanced Apprenticeship Standard in Carpentry and Joinery, or secure employment as a Site Carpenter or Architectural Joiner.
The achievement of this standard will meet the requirements of the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) Skilled Worker standard, which is widely accepted in the sector as a licence to operate in a skilled construction trade.

I was really interested in the College because it has a good selection of tools and machinery, great tutors and I liked the workshops. It also offers courses from Level 1 to 3 in furniture making and design, which meant I could start at Level 1 and build my skills, plus I study maths alongside my course.
