Skills, talent and training
Despite hard times, we are an industry that continues to look to the future - our membership represents the most concentrated population of apprenticeships in the UK, a statistic that we are very proud of.
Our skills and training campaigns are driven by the BWF’s training group, the Woodworking Industry Training Forum (WITForum) – a member-led group of companies to help improve skills, provision and quality in the woodworking training environment.
Our campaign work in this area has brought about real change in qualifications and occupational standards and moved our membership to one of the top federations for claiming training grants testament to their commitment to skills development.
We campaign for quality training and skills development for both new entrants and for skills development throughout each individuals career in the joinery and woodworking industry.
