Offers of a place on the course are dependent on qualifications and practical aptitude, and you will need GCSE Maths and English at grade D (3) or above. 

Following a successful interview and initial assessment results, you will be allocated a place to study the practical and theoretical elements of carpentry and joinery.  Parents and carers are welcome to attend the interview but not the initial assessment.

Joinery apprentice Sean says College and work are a perfect fit

The college work is as good as the work itself – I'm enjoying both. I'm busy all day, doing bench joinery, compared to the site joinery I'm doing at work. I'm getting to know the different sides of it. I'm meeting new people. It's good. I decided to go into joinery because I like making things: three quarters of my subjects at school were design ones. I like everything about college. It's good, apart from going home at quarter to six! They can be long days. I'd really recommend an apprenticeship, you're straight away learning on the job and at college. It's the way I wanted it.
