Carpentry Apprentice

carpentry apprenticeship at Refurb a Sash and Richmond upon Thames College in London James

Real joinery

“I most enjoy getting into the real world of joinery which is very different from purely studying”

James chose an apprenticeship because: “I can earn money and learn the trade at the same time.”

RuTC have supported James by: “regularly assessing my work to see how I’ve been doing.”

Lessons learnt so far: “How to make Refurb-a-Sash windows from scratch.”

James’s future plans include: “staying at Refurb-a-Sash for longer and then moving on to something new in joinery. Alternatively, I’d like to one day set up my own business, putting what I’ve learnt into action.”
