Carpenters & Joiners can potentially earn up to £40,000 per year, and with construction employment expected to increase in the North West to over 284,000 by 2023, they're increasingly in high demand. That means a Carpentry & Joinery Apprenticeship makes sense; you'll gain the real skills and real experience that employers are looking for, and you'll be earning a wage too!
To continually develop the quality of our Carpentry & Joinery Apprenticeships, we've introduced new Apprenticeship standards, developed by employer groups called ‘Trailblazers’. Employers such as Seddon know what they want from their employees so they're best placed to describe what skills, knowledge and behaviours you'll need for your career in Carpentry & Joinery. This means our Apprenticeships will give you all the right skills you need to secure permanent employment or progress to further or higher education.
When you’re in College, you’ll learn in our modern Construction Block, using industry-standard tools and materials, overlooked by industry-experienced tutors; plus you'll have personal one-to-one support from your own dedicated Work Based Tutor, who'll visit you on site.
So, what does a Carpenter & Joiner do? It's skilled work, primarily using timber products, either on a construction site, or in a workshop. Preparing and fixing building components; installing fixtures and fittings; maintaining and repairing - the key elements of a Carpenter & Joiners role. Once qualified, you can expect to earn between £16,000 to £40,000 per year and with experience, you could specialise in architectural joinery. You could even set up your own business or become a construction site supervisor.
