The Level 3 Site Carpentry course will prepare you for more specialised work, such as traditional hand cut roofs and also provides you with an insight into site management.

Following your initial assessment, an individual learning plan is created which will highlight your strengths and details any areas of need.

The course is broken down into units focusing on specific areas which are then assessed. This will allow us to check your progress before the next module begins.

In practical lessons you will work through a series of tasks or projects to develop your hands-on skills. All of the tasks that you produce are set by the awarding body to demonstrate and verify your practical skills. The theory sessions provide you with the underpinning knowledge of the construction industry needed to apply your skills on site.

Areas covered include:

  • Complex structural work: Hand cut roofs, Dormer windows
  • Double doors, raked and curved mouldings
  • Principles of organising, planning and pricing construction work
  • Set up and use fixed and transportable machinery: band saws, morticers, thicknessers and circular saws

All programmes include visits, guest speakers, training opportunities and work experience as standard. We take part in various competitions, including the annual Norfolk and Waveney Building Apprentices’ Competition, to showcase the skills and determination of students.

Requirements

Learners must complete the relevant level 2 course in order to access level 3.

Assessment

Practical work is assessed in the workshop against awarding body criteria. Theory is assessed via multiple choice exams, both online and paper-based, at the end of each unit.

Progression

After completing this course you may choose to develop your knowledge of the industry further by joining another construction-related programme or find work within the construction industry. Former students have gone on to work within the industry or have even set up their own businesses. Many are now helping to train the workforce of the future as they have also taken on apprentices of their own.
