Qualification overview

If you wish to start a new career in construction and have little or no experience, the Level 2 Award in Carpentry and Joinery qualification has been developed for delivery in a training environment; this means that you do not need to be employed to study this qualification. It has been designed to develop your skills, knowledge and understanding so you can work as a Carpenter and Joiner in the construction industry or progress to further training. This Level 2 Award is designed to give you an introduction to Carpentry and Joinery and prepare you to enter the industry in your chosen craft.

You should undertake this qualification if you have some previous experience (e.g Work placement, working with family, summer job etc.). If you have previous experience or completed a previous qualification in this occupational area or you have achieved 5 GCSE* then you should consider this Diploma instead of the Level 2 Award or Certificate. *We do not set a minimum requirement for this qualification and this should only be used as a guide.
