Cabinet Making Apprenticeships

Cabinet Making Apprenticeships are a part of the woodworking trade with a long history grounded in design, artistry and functionality. Cabinet makers typically work with timber-based products and the like, designing, manufacturing and installing furniture and cabinetry in residential and commercial environments. Famous cabinet makers throughout history have revolutionised furniture design, authored design books, and crafted original pieces now worth thousands to collectors.

These days on-the-job training as a Cabinet Making apprentice might see you working for an artisan business crafting and installing made-to-order pieces; working in a manufacturing warehouse in the mass production of cabinetry and furniture; or even working for companies like Freedom Kitchens on the installation of pre-fabricated cabinetry. Regardless of your practical training, attention to detail and accuracy are critical to your success, as well as a love for wood chips and shavings.

This trade requires a three- to four-year apprenticeship depending on your qualification. MIGAS will facilitate your practical work placement with one of our quality host employers. In addition to on-the-job training, we will assist you with enrolment through a Registered Training Organisation to complete your certification. With MIGAS you will be fully supported throughout the duration of your placement by a Field Officer and by the wider MIGAS Apprentices and Trainees community.
