Study Level

Level 3

Course Code



Lowestoft Campus


1 Year



Our carpentry courses will prepare you for specialised work, such as traditional hand cut roofs, and also provide you with an insight into site management. In practical lessons, you will work through projects to develop your hands-on skills, with all tasks set by the awarding body.

The theory sessions will provide you with the underpinning knowledge of the construction industry needed to apply your skills on site.

Areas covered include:

  • Complex structural work
  • Dormer windows
  • Double doors
  • Raked and curved moulding
  • Principles of organising, planning and pricing construction work

Why study with us:

  • You will develop your skills using carpentry hand and power tools
  • You will learn new and emerging technologies needed for work on-site
  • You will be taught by highly skilled and qualified staff in our well maintained and stocked workshops


You will need to have completed a relevant level 2 course in order to access this level 3 course.



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.


You can progress into an apprenticeship or employment in careers such as a kitchen fitter, general site operative, teacher, wood machinist, joiner, window fitter, site carpenter, formwork or shuttering carpenter.

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.
