This NVQ Level 2 Wood Occupations – Site Carpentry course is built to provide carpenters with the practical skills and professionalism they need to progress in the construction industry. The NVQ Level 2 is a qualification that everyone in the industry recognises – it’s a sure sign that a would-be employee is able to do the job to the standard required.
The NVQ Site Carpentry course will provide a means of achieving the qualification through work in the construction industry.
Who is this NVQ Level 2 Site Carpentry Course For?
Learners should be carpenters who are already employed in the industry, since the site carpentry course requires a workplace environment. They should also be over the age of sixteen.

Assessment / Examination
You’ll be assessed in a workplace environment. The quality of your carpentry will be evaluated as you work and afterwards. Testimony will be collected from witnesses to your work, and you’ll be asked to answer a few written questions, too. By taking this varied approach, we’ll be able to assemble as complete a picture of your ability as a carpenter as possible.
