Product under review - open for registrations, EPA reservations and bookings available shortly.

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 Advanced Carpentry & Joinery and includes an end-test at the end of the apprentices. 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 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.

Pathway 1: An Advanced Site Carpenter will normally work on a building site, or in domestic and commercial premises, preparing and installing complex and often bespoke building components e.g. high quality doors, shaped linings, staircases with turns, complex wall and floor units, erecting bespoke structural carpentry (inclined roofs and joists) and erecting complex roof structures (e.g. inclined roofs with hips, valleys and dormers).

Pathway 2: An Advanced Architectural Joiner will normally be employed in a workshop, producing complex building components by setting out, marking out and manufacturing bespoke architectural products (e.g. doors, windows, staircases with turns and panelling/cladding). 

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 two components – all components must be passed for the apprentice to meet the apprenticeship standard. The two components consist of;

  • Multiple choice test – This will be a 45-min test containing 35 multiple-choice questions.
  • Practical test – A supervised test in one day. The apprentice completes a practical activity with oral questioning where needed 

 The test takes six hours.
