Carpentry and Joinery apprentices typically either work on a construction site as a Site Carpenter or in a workshop as an Architectural Joiner. Separate information about site carpentry is also available.
Architectural Joiners produce building components by setting out, marking out and manufacturing basic architectural products, including doors, windows, straight staircases and associated ironmongery. Architectural joiners are typically based in a workshop, rather than on site, and will liaise regularly with workshop colleagues and supervisors as well as architects, designers and customers. They will work within a team, under supervision and will use machinery and or tools to create structures or components from designs, plans and specifications that meet the client’s expectations.
