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 site carpenter / architectural joiner, and a level 3 advanced site carpenter / architectural joiner are that the advanced carpenter / joiner has responsibility for managing their own and other people’s 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.
This is a core and options apprenticeship, with two pathways:
As an Apprenticeship standard, you will be assessed against your knowledge, skills and behaviours which includes working towards the level 3 Diploma for Wood Occupations (in your chosen pathway.)

You will be required to attend College one day a week as well as regularly visited by your assessor for the duration of your apprenticeship for assessment against your knowledge and skills, in readiness for an independent End Point Assessment.
Typically this takes 18 months to complete.
Level 3 Bench Joinery
Previous Institution: Thomas Adams School
I grew up around carpentry as it was my Grandad’s profession and I want to join the Royal Engineers, so this subject is right for me. I really enjoy the visualisation that comes with bench joinery, being able to see a product and know that you can create it yourself.
Level 2 Bench Joinery
Previous Institution: Ercall Wood School
I came to study at here because it was highly recommended. The teachers are currently helping me work towards the SkillBuild competition, which means doing extra projects in my spare time.
This course is linked to roles within the NHS.
