Wood Occupations Bench Joinery Apprenticeship Level 2 at Bedford College

Course description

This intermediate two year Apprenticeship will provide you with the introductory knowledge and skills you will need to undertake work in the carpentry and joinery industry. During the course you will learn how to manufacture windows, doors, stairs and units, as well as fitments, including marking out, machining and assembling. Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes: you work and get paid to gain industry recognised qualifications. The course will combine the practical hands-on experience of the workplace with the knowledge and understanding gained through a College course.

Entry requirements

You must be employed for a minimum of 30 hours per week in a relevant job role and have a keen interest in bench joinery. Some evidence of studying at GCSE level would be an advantage.


The practical elements of this course will consist of on-going training and assessment, with an end-of-course synoptic test. The theory elements will be assessed through progress tests, assignments, unit tests and an end of course final exam.

Future opportunities

Apprenticeships train you in the skills that employers want, so when you’ve finished you can carry on working, and potentially get promoted. You can also progress on to the Carpentry or Bench Joinery Level 3 or other related courses.
