Carpentry and Joinery at North Lancs Training Group (NLTG)

Course description

What is Carpentry and Joinery?

Do you have a passion to work in the construction industry? Do you enjoy practical, hands on work? Then a Carpentry or Joinery Apprenticeship is for you.

As an apprentice, you will receive comprehensive training in a variety of skills and work in a highly practical job under the guidance of an experienced carpenter or joiner. Your training will also cover the use of hand tools such as saws, hammers, chisels, and power tools including drills and jigsaws. It may be that your training as a carpenter or joiner involves travel to different locations, especially building sites and homes. 

Day release to a local college is required on a weekly basis as part of the Apprenticeship.


Apprenticeships available:

Architectural Joiner Level 2

Site Carpenter Level 2

Advanced Architectural Joiner Level 3

Advanced Site Carpenter Level 3


What training will I receive?

You’ll receive real-life training from experienced staff within your workplace, and be visited regularly by a specialist NLTG Tutor. Your Tutor will support and guide you throughout your Apprenticeship, making sure you develop the skills needed for your job role. As part of your Apprenticeship, you will need to complete a Maths and/or English qualification at Level 1 (ie Grade D/3) if you do not already have these qualifications. Depending on your Apprenticeship, you may also need to study an ICT qualification. Your NLTG Tutor will provide you with support and guidance.

If you are unsure that an Apprenticeship is right for you then why not have a look at our 'Why choose an Apprenticeship?' page. If you feel you are not yet ready for an Apprenticeship, then why not have a look at a Traineeship first?

Entry requirements
