    "You can attend a local college to learn carpentry and gain a City & Guilds Certificate, but, to be honest you would learn far more by seeking employment with a company instead of that, which I believe is far better than a piece of paper they call a certificate is to gain experience.

    "There are multiple types of joinery, site joinery is constructing timber roofs for houses and fitting doors, stud walls and such.

    Bench joinery is the process of making furniture from timber such as bed frames, tables, wardrobes and such.

    For site joinery, both first fix (before plastering the house essentially) and second fix finishing touches such as (skirtings and doors) can be learned within a 2 - 3 year college course.

    Bench joinery is mostly family-owned company's and not as commonly taught for degrees as such however it's possible courses are out there but now you know a little about the difference in A carpenters options, Good luck."
