City and Guilds
Apprenticeships & Traineeships

Course Overview

There are two joinery pathways – Bench and Site. Bench joinery includes preparation, setting out, and manufacture of joinery components while site carpentry focuses on the installation of joinery components, and on the setting out and fabrication of timber elements used in construction. Carpentry & Joinery enables you to work internally or externally on a range of projects, making furniture, stairs, roofing systems - the variety for a skilled professional is always challenging. Finishing to a high standard and job satisfaction are integral to success. CNC engraving and milling is an additional woodcraft which you may gain experience with at NWRC. Enrichment activities include personal development workshops on mental health, road safety, and cultural diversity amongst others. Our students also have the opportunity to compete in Regional and UK Competitions with the aim of progressing to World Skills.

    One day you can be fixing things, putting flanges and pipes together and the next day you can be doing something completely different like changing drives.
