Five Day Intensive Carpentry and Joinery Course
SuperSkills Construction Training’s Intensive Carpentry and Joinery Course is designed to take a complete novice to the point where he or she is competent at Carpentry & Joinery.
SuperSkills Intensive Carpentry and Joinery Course is available as a stand-alone, non-qualification programme or as part of your progression to City & Guilds Qualifications and an NVQ in Carpentry & Joinery.
Whether you want to learn a trade skill, start up a business, change your career or repair or renovate your home, the SuperSkills Intensive Carpentry and Joinery Course will provide you with all the skills you require.
SuperSkills Construction Training never offer courses on a “one size fits all” basis. Every client is treated individually – their personal training requirements are planned into the programme. All our instructing staff are accredited NVQ Assessors and deliver the training in accordance with the National NVQ Codes of Practice.
That’s why we can give a “no quibble” guarantee – If at the end of your Intensive Carpentry and Joinery Course, you are not completely satisfied – we will give you your money back!
The Intensive Carpentry and Joinery Course will include:

Like all SuperSkills training – if you are not completely satisfied at the end of your course – we will give you your money back!
After your Intensive Carpentry and Joinery Course course, you will be able to access unlimited support, free of charge, to make sure you can deal with any problems you encounter. All you have to do is call and we will talk you through the problem.
You will be able to undertake carpentry and joinery tasks with confidence – and many people have gone straight from our five day Intensive Carpentry and Joinery Course to start earning their living. However, we never claim to turn people into fully qualified Carpenters or Joiners in such a short time. Our clients who are developing a business based on our training tend to return for further training on our advanced programmes and complete all the units of accreditation to complete their City & Guilds qualification.
Please note – there is a real difference between training providers like SuperSkills, which is accredited by the construction industry’s awarding bodies, inspected by Ofsted and contracted to provide training by the Skills Funding Agency, the Department for Work & Pensions and our local secondary schools – and the small providers who make claims about their training that simply do not bear scrutiny.
The standards we have to maintain to reach this position set SuperSkills Construction Training apart from its competitors and give all our customers real confidence our service is of the highest quality.
Unless you have been a Joiner for at least five years – which qualifies you to be assessed for NVQ’s through practical assessment – a service SuperSkills is accredited to provide, you cannot get an NVQ unless you are assessed in the workplace. No short course will result in National Vocational Qualifications. If you require further information about Carpentry & Joinery NVQ’s, click here.
When you are selecting a construction skills training provider, ask which awarding bodies they are accredited by. Only then can you be sure that you are choosing one that is subject to external quality assurance to make sure they deliver Carpentry & Joinery courses to construction industry training standards. Make sure you ask if they can match the SuperSkills “no quibble” guarantee!
