The BWF is fully committed to promoting the woodworking and joinery manufacturing industry as a sector that offers an interesting, rewarding and progressive career. We work closely with employers and the wider education sector to provide access to first class learning opportunities, supported by the development of high-quality learning resources, ranging from hands-on practical courses to online interactive learning tools.
We believe that future proofing the industry’s workforce should be built upon four key pillars:
- Continuing to support and promote career development within our industry
- Supporting apprentices to become work-ready and upkeep a qualified workforce
- Retaining and developing existing talent through continuous learning
- Promoting woodworking and joinery manufacturing to young and future talent
