An apprenticeship is the ideal way to kick-start a career, offering structured training whilst also getting hands-on work experience in a mentored environment. The woodworking and joinery manufacture industry offers excellent job prospects, varied and interesting work and a multitude of progression options. Whether it be becoming a skilled artisan, a product designer, a skilled machine operative, a CAD designer, a senior estimator or leading construction projects, there are a range of possibilities and, if you aspire to run your own business too, we can point to many successful businesses started by an ex-apprentice.
Apprenticeships work for the employer too, with apprentices helping to introduce fresh ideas and new ways of working.
To help showcase the many opportunities that apprenticeships can bring, we have a number of case studies where apprentices, in their own words, share their experiences.
