The programme is open to anyone aged 19 and above, who will be supported through a 10-month course in Carpentry and Joinery. Starting in September, three days a week of college-based work will be complemented by work experience at leading home improvements company CR Smith.

Upon the successful completion of an SCQF Level 5 qualification, the trainees will be guaranteed an interview with CR Smith and have the opportunity to apply for a place on the CR Smith adult apprenticeship programme.

The aim is to give a boost to more people wanting to enter the joinery profession.
