Working as a carpenter or joiner is a well paid and creative profession. The Level 1 Carpentry and Joinery Study Programme introduces you to the woodworking trade before you start work onsite, allowing you to explore a comprehensive range of skills that you’ll be using including basic theory and practical skills, learning about hand tools, power tools, timber technology, different joints, as well as health and safety. As part of the Programme, you’ll also discover a range of skills that you’ll need to know to work onsite, such as team working and communication alongside improvements to your maths and English – essential for any role.
