Welcome to the Institute of Carpenters – the home for professionals working in wood trades.
The Institute was established in 1890, to help maintain standards and skills at a time when traditional skills were being lost.
Over a century later, we’re still committed to upholding the highest standards of our historic craft and membership is now open to all craftspeople working in wood trades (e.g. carpenters, joiners, wheelwrights, furniture makers, boat builders and shop fitters).
In the Student Hub section of our website you will find lots of useful information, which covers everything from bursaries and awards to apprenticeships, starting your own business and much more.
You will also find the IOC member colleges and a page of useful links to help you navigate your career in carpentry.
