This apprenticeship is designed by key employers in the Construction industry and is one of the new 'trailblazer apprenticeships'.  It provides the skills and underpinning knowledge for Carpentry & Joinery and includes an end-test at the end of the apprentices The occupation involves carrying out skilled work, primarily using timber products, either on a construction site, or in a workshop, creating and installing building components. This is a core and options apprenticeship, with two pathways:

Pathway 1: A Site Carpenter will normally work on a building site, or in domestic and commercial premises, preparing and fixing building components, from the initial erection of a new building, through to the installation of all necessary fixtures and fittings, as well as a range of repair and maintenance activities.

Pathway 2: 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.

On-programme

On-programme is the learning phase for apprentices to pick up the skills, knowledge and behaviours set out in the standard. Apprentices need to complete 20% off-the-job training during the on-programme phase of their apprenticeship which must take place in the apprentice’s contracted hours. The apprentice must also complete a portfolio of evidence during their on-programme learning. The portfolio is not graded but will form the basis for the questioning during the professional discussion. The apprentice must collect supporting evidence throughout their final year to build up their portfolio. It is recommended that employers and training providers work closely to support the apprentice to gather evidence to include within their portfolio, such as a journal recording their experiences, formative written and practical tests, as well as employer appraisals.

 

End-point assessment

The end-point assessment will demonstrate that the apprentice can perform in a fully competent and productive way. The end-point assessment will contain three components – all components must be passed for the apprentice to meet the apprenticeship standard. The three components consist of;

  • A 45-minute test with 35 questions designed to assess the apprentice’s understanding of the core and specific knowledge and behavioural requirements. Delivered in a controlled invigilated environment approved by the independent end-point assessment organisation.
  • A supervised test marked by an independent assessor, approved and moderated by the independent end-point assessment organisation. During the test, the apprentice completes a practical activity, including oral questioning where required (to ensure the apprentice has the skills, supporting knowledge and behaviours required for the chosen job role). The test for both pathways will take a minimum of six hours to complete
