What opportunities will this course give me?
On completion and achievement of the standard, it will enable you to work in industry as a fully qualified site carpenter and apply for a gold CSCS card
What will I be learning?
The apprenticeship in Advanced Site Carpentry builds on the competencies developed at Level 2 and serves to support apprentices with the responsibility for managing their own and other peoples work, as well as being required to complete complex and non-standard work. Examples of complex tasks include curved products, irregular joints and bespoke work.
Advanced Site Carpenters will normally work on a building site, or in domestic and commercial premises, preparing and installing complex and often bespoke building components e.g. high quality doors, shaped linings, staircases with turns, complex wall and floor units, erecting bespoke structural carpentry (inclined roofs and joists) and erecting complex roof structures (e.g. inclined roofs with hips, valleys and dormers).
Why is this course for me?
The apprenticeship standard covers the core skills, knowledge and behaviours applicable to both pathways but also develops pathway specific skills to include:
Advanced Site Carpenter
• utilising a range of advanced trade skills which allow them to carry out complex carpentry work to highly skilled standards and tolerances
• installing complex and non-standard doors and window frames, shaped door and hatch linings, partitions with openings and changes of direction and staircases with turns.
• installing accessible service encasements, bespoke wall/ floor units and fitments, panelling and stair components (e.g. balustrades, handrails and spindles with turns)
• erecting inclined roofs with gables, roof verges and eaves, including finishings, joists and roof coverings
• repairing and or replace frames, mouldings, floor or flat roof joist coverings, door and window ironmongery, window components, structural joists and rafters, window components, guttering and downpipes
Apprentices will develop through a combination of on and off-the-job training and are expected to attend Eastleigh College on a day release basis. Prior to the End Point Assessment apprentices will be required to compile a portfolio of work-place evidence to present at their End Point Assessment and will also be required to achieve:
BWF approved SiteRight Fire Door Installation Awareness delivered by a NOCN approved provider (delivered at Eastleigh College)
Additionally, unless exempt on entry, apprentices will be required to achieve Level 2 Functional Skills in English & Maths prior to undertaking end point assessment.
The typical duration of this apprenticeship is expected to be 12-15 months.
Your progress will be continuously monitored and supported by a Trainer.
How will my learning be enhanced?
The achievement of this standard will meet the requirement of the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) Advanced Skilled Worker standard, which is widely recognised as a licence to operate in a skilled construction trade.

What do I need to sign up?
Entry is subject to interview and assessment and you will need to have relevant employment. In addition, you will need to have 4 GCSEs at grade C/4 or higher, including English & Maths and have achieved the Level 2 apprenticeship standard in site carpentry
Is there anything else I need to know?
The apprenticeship end-point assessment is the final evaluation stage of your apprenticeship program at Eastleigh College. It's designed to determine whether you have achieved the knowledge, skills, and behaviours required to meet the apprenticeship standard and perform the job role independently.
Depending on the standard, we assess your competence through various methods, such as practical exams, assignments, interviews, project work, presentations or observations and we will also evaluate your portfolio of evidence, which documents your learning and progress throughout your apprenticeship with us.
The end-point assessment must be taken at the end of your apprenticeship, and the results determine whether you have successfully completed the program and achieved the apprenticeship standard.
Successful completion of the end-point assessment is required to receive certification.
