OVERVIEW

The Apprenticeship in Specialist Joinery and Furniture Production will run for two years. The apprenticeship framework will be at Level 2 and will include Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Furniture Making and a Level 2 Diploma in Furniture Production.

The employers involved in this apprenticeship scheme are seeking highly motivated  applicants with an attention to detail and the desire to develop the skills needed to produce high end joinery products and furniture. This apprenticeship aims to provide a structured environment where apprentices, under the supervision of a qualified mentor, develop the professional values, leadership, technical/design competencies and the personal and interpersonal attributes that define the role of a specialist joiner and provide a solid foundation for career progression within this field.

Each apprentice will also undergo a specific induction programme with the employer. Our lecturers will ensure consistency of ‘on-the-job’ programme standards and quality. The College recognises the importance of monitoring each apprentice’s progress in terms of both on and off-the-job elements of the programme.
