What opportunities will this course give me?
On completion of this standard, apprentices may progress onto the Apprenticeship Standard in Advanced Site Carpentry Level 3
What will I be learning?
Carpenters carry out skilled work, primarily using timber products, to create and install building components.
Site Carpenters will normally work on a building site, or in domestic and commercial premises, preparing and fixing building components, from the initial erection of a new building, through to the installation of all necessary fixtures and fittings, as well as a range of maintenance activities and repair work.
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:
• measuring, marking out, fitting, cutting, splicing, finishing, positioning and securing
• installing door and window frames, door and hatch linings, floor joist coverings, straight partitions and straight staircases
• installing doors, ironmongery, service encasements, wall and floor units and fitments, cladding and staircase components
• erect inclined roofs with gables, joists, roof coverings and roof components
• repair or replace frames, mouldings, doors, windows, door and window ironmongery, roofing components, guttering and downpipes and window components
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. Over the final year of the programme you will be required to compile a portfolio of work-place evidence to be presented at End Point Assessment.
Additionally, unless exempt on entry, apprentices will be required to achieve Level 1 Functional Skills in English & Maths and take the test at Level 2 prior to undertaking end point assessment.
The typical duration of this apprenticeship is expected to be 24 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 requirements of the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) Skilled Worker standard, which is widely accepted in the sector as a licence to operate in a skilled construction trade.
A full list of the skills, knowledge and behaviours which will be evidenced and developed over the length of the programme can be found here:

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 D/3 or higher, including English & Maths or have achieved a relevant Level 1 vocational qualification* and be able to demonstrate ability equivalent to, or exceeding Level 1 in English& Maths.
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.
