Carpentry & Joinery Apprenticeships normally last for 2 years during which time you will attend the NWTC Training Centre or a College on a day release or full time course to obtain your Key Skills, Health & Safety and diploma. If you are employed the remainder of the time will be spent with your employer, following the National Vocational Qualification (N.V.Q) Level 2 laid down by the Construction Industry Training Board (C.I.T.B) and the City & Guilds, leading to a certificate of apprenticeship.
The training includes all aspects of site and bench joinery such as:
January to August. Most apprenticeships commence in September of each year.
Application Forms are available from schools, Connexions or direct from NWTC using the online application form.
You should have or hope to gain Grade C or above in GCSE Maths, English, Science and a Technical subject.
You will first attend a selection test at NWTC.
If you obtain good results in the NWTC Selection Test you will be invited to attend an interview with one of our Training Officers. Some evidence of practical ability and an interest in carpentry & joinery would be an advantage.
Company Interviews are then arranged for the most suitable applicants.
Applicants chosen for employment by the company will normally start in September.
