Employee Training Hub

Designed specifically for woodworking and joinery manufacturing businesses, this employee training hub provides details of the many training courses available, from safe use of woodworking machinery courses, online manual handling refresher training, through to on-site National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) achievement.

Ongoing training and development remain fundamental to the growth of the woodworking and joinery manufacturing industry. To help BWF members to train their staff and raise skills levels across the wider industry, the BWF Wood Industry Training (WIT) Forum works closely with funding partners to support WITForum member training activity.

Why train through the BWF?

The BWF is an Approved Training Organisation (ATO) which means that we are recognised as an organisation that provides access to high quality training solutions that comply with industry approved standards.

To provide first class training to the woodworking and joinery manufacturing industry, we work with a range of BWF Approved Training Providers (ATPs) across the UK. All courses are priced competitively and if you are a BWF member, then you may also benefit from discounted delivery rates. Eligible members may also be able to access for CITB funding secured through support or collaborative engagement with the WITForum.
