This Level 2 apprenticeship is for those looking to gain trade skills and a qualification while working on a construction site. As an apprentice, you will need to be employed (our recruitment team may be able to help you find an employer) and you will study one day per week at college for two years to gain your Level 2 qualification.
Site carpentry focuses on woodwork essential to a construction site and includes fitting flooring, roofing frame installation, partition wall construction and stair building to name but a few. There is also timber frame erection, window fitting and some on-site modifications needed for structures.

Steve Kendall Programme Manager CarpentryOn leaving school Steve was offered an apprenticeship with a local builder, after completing the apprenticeship he became self-employed and worked as a carpenter and joiner all over Cornwall until a teaching opportunity presented itself at Cornwall College.
“I get a buzz from seeing the students we’ve trained be successful in the construction industry in both the local area and worldwide. Just seeing apprentices we’ve trained in the past bring their own apprentices to us to train, makes doing what we do very worthwhile.”
