Carpentry (Site) Diploma Level 3
Carpenters are responsible for large areas of the construction and craft industry. Site Carpenters create, fix and install larger wooden site structures, such as the internal frames for wooden framed buildings. Site Carpenters will often work on building sites as part of the team tasked with developing new structures from the ground up.
In comparison, Bench Joiners create the more domestic aspects of wood work construction such as windows, doors and fitted cupboards, lay joists and hang doors, for example, which are produced in a workshop. Find out more about Bench Carpentry and Joinery here.
