There is a mandatory qualification for this standard:

Pearson Edexcel Level 2 NVQ Diploma in wood occupations (Site Carpentry or Architectural Joinery pathway)

A training qualification is recommended by the employer group. This could be achieved by using:

BTEC Level 2 Diploma in construction occupations (Site Carpentry/ Bench Joinery pathways)

and adding a small amount of additional taught supplementary knowledge (on CAD, BIM and site fixing).

Coming soon: a new technical diploma in carpentry and joinery, which can meet the needs of both full-time and apprentice learners.
