Carpentry and Joinery

Carpenters and Joiners require an eye for detail, a sense of precision and a creative flair. If you want to train in this much needed trade our experienced tutors will guide you through the skills areas in our industry standard equipped workshops.

You’ll learn about construction technology, using woodwork joints, maintenance of tools and using power tools. Building on this you will learn about erecting structural carcasses, using circular saws and carrying out first and second fix operations.

You also have the option of training for a Multitrades qualification including Brickwork and Joinery with the opportunity to study one of those at a higher level. You’ll also get the chance to gain valuable work experience with local companies and community projects.

What Next?

If you want to progress in the construction industry the University Centre Grimsby offers a HNC and HND in construction. These qualifications will give you an in-depth insight into the principles and technologies involved in the sector. Apprenticeship routes are also available in Carpentry and Joinery. Visit the Apprenticeship website for more information.

Danielle is only 19 and is the first ever female to complete the Level 3 Carpentry & Joinery qualification at the Institute. Danielle has already got a full-time job with Howarth Timber making windows and doors and she is now planning on returning to University Centre Grimsby in a few years to study for a HNC and eventually become a Building Inspector. Danielle said:

“I’ve definitely enjoyed my time here, the tutors have just been amazing. I wanted to leave the Institute and get straight into a job and that’s exactly what I’ve done, I wouldn’t have been able to get through it without them. The environment in which we train is fantastic, being a girl I thought it would be difficult but the Institute has given me the chance to be what I want to be.”
