What You’ll Learn

During this 6 weeks of training you will achieve 2 separate City & Guilds certificates, one dedicated to basic carpentry and one to basic joinery giving you those extra skills to enable you to refine your overall carpentry skills.

Course One – Carpentry

The training and assessments you will undertake are:

  • Health and Safety in construction
  • Fixing architraves and skirtings
  • Constructing and fixing hatch linings
  • Fitting locks and latches

Course Two – Joinery

The training and assessments you will undertake are:

  • Constructing halving joints
  • Constructing housing joints
  • Constructing through mortice and tenon joints

How You’ll Learn

To fully achieve both of these carpentry and joinery awards will require 6 weeks of hands on training, during which time you will build a portfolio of your work, recording all of your practical carpentry and joinery assessments. This complete and detailed portfolio, along with final certification, can be used as evidence of experience when you are applying for work within the carpentry industry.
