What you will study

Carpentry involves carrying out skilled work, primarily using timber products, either on a construction site, or in a workshop, creating and installing building components.

Site carpenters carry out a range of job tasks including measuring, marking out, fitting, cutting, splicing, finishing, positioning and securing. Examples of the type of work they do are installing door and window frames, straight partitions and straight staircases, doors and staircase components. Site carpenters erect inclined roofs with gables, joists, roof coverings and roof components. They also repair frames, doors, windows, roofing components, guttering and downpipes and window components.

A Site Carpenter will normally work on a building site, or in domestic and commercial premises, preparing and fixing building components, from the initial erection of a new building, through to the installation of all necessary fixtures and fittings, as well as a range of repair and maintenance activities.
