Carpentry & Joinery Courses in Kent

If you want to have access to the most enthusiastic team of Carpentry and Joinery instructors in Kent then Able Skills is definitely the place to be.

Our Carpentry centre is incredibly popular and this is not just because of the variety of joinery and carpentry courses we offer, I think it has a lot to do with the dedication of our instructors too. They are incredibly passionate about the learning process and keen to assure that individuals leave with the exact skills and knowledge that they set out to achieve. 

Our Kent based Carpentry and Joinery training centre has been built to ensure that access to a range of topics is available so whether you are learning to hang a door, learning to use cutting machines, undertaking a roofing assessment or covering aspects of bench joinery, the areas are in place for you to learn.

We have an abundance of joinery & carpentry courses on offer here in Kent, short introductory courses as well as training to achieve qualifications and in addition, we are happy to arrange bespoke courses (if we can meet your requirements).

We offer such a wide range of courses here in Kent, everything from 5 days to 12 weeks and many variations in between. We offer standalone carpentry courses and standalone joinery courses but in addition, offer combined options too. There really isn’t anything we can’t offer from a Carpentry and Joinery point of view if you are happy to spend some time with us in Kent.

In addition, for time served Carpenters with over 5 years experience, we are also accredited by CITB to assess ‘in-house’ for NVQ level 2 – this is known as the EWPA route.

The idea at Able Skills is to give everyone a chance to learn a new skill so with that in mind, we are open 7 days every week – the Carpentry courses department is open 2 weekends per month so if you were prepared to spread your training over a longer period of time, you can still achieve your aims without taking time off of work.

If you would like more information about learning carpentry and/or joinery in Kent, please feel free to give us a ring, email us: or even pop down and pay us a visit – you do not need to make an appointment, we are just happy for you to turn up.

Carpentry and Joinery courses at Able Skills

If your aim is to learn some basic, useful carpentry skills then you may wish to consider one of our 5 day carpentry courses however, if you want to learn much more but still have no desire to achieve a qualification then we offer a 4 week hands on Carpentry course and a 4 week hands on Joinery course (or 6 weeks combined).

However, if you are looking to achieve qualifications then our most popular options are our C&G 6 week Carpentry course, our 8 week C&G/NVQ Carpentry course and also a 10 week C&G combined Carpentry & Joinery course.

If you would like to achieve level 2 qualifications from the outset then you may want to consider our C&G 6706 Carpentry Diploma or our C&G 6706 Joinery Diploma

Able Skills is ideally located in Kent, South East England, with access by major road and rail links however if you are travelling to us from a little further afield, we also have our own accommodation which is available on a room only basis at £20 per night
