As a 1st year carpenters apprentice there are a number of jobs that will be assigned specifically to you. They will be matched to your entry level position and limited knowledge that comes with. This, however, does not mean that they are altogether easy. They require confidence, stamina, strength and an attention to detail not dissimilar to that of the finest craftsman. Not only is it your role to learn and complete these tasks to a high standard, but you must also do so whilst maintaining vigilant of those around you and a focus on the bigger picture outside of that immediate task. You will be pushed to the limit of endurance, stretched till muscle and sinew burns, driven to the farthest reaches of your being and then slammed up against it again the very next day. You will live for it, breath for it. Your body is a machine, you are a champion and we will have you cresting on the verge of superhuman before you know it! That is the challenge we set before you.
