Onsite Construction T Level (Carpentry)

T Levels combine classroom theory, practical learning and a minimum 315-hour industry placement with an employer to make sure you have real experience of the workplace. The Technical Qualification (TQ) is the main classroom-based element of the T Level and will see you learn from a curriculum that has been shaped by industry experts. T Level courses have been developed in collaboration with employers and businesses so that the content will meet the needs of industry and prepare you for work. They provide the knowledge and experience needed to open the door to highly skilled employment, an apprenticeship or higher-level study, including university.

The course is split into core components that are common to all Construction T Levels, plus your occupational specialism of Carpentry.

The core components provide a broad understanding of the construction and BSE industry. Topics include:
– Health and safety
– Construction science principles
– Sustainability in construction
– Building Services Engineering (BSE) systems.

You will also develop transferable skills in communication, research and project work.

You will study Carpentry as your occupational specialism in year two.

You will also undertake a 315-hour (minimum) industry placement.
