Master Certificate

The Prestigious
Master Certificate

The Master Certificate Scheme, in partnership with City & Guilds, aims to recognise excellence and promote career progression from Apprentice to Journeyman and then Master level. To achieve the awards, the applicant will need to prove suitable academic training and demonstrate their commitment to our industry and how they have supported those working within it.

How it's Judged

A panel of professional representatives from The Furniture Makers’ Company will assess all applications.

In order to qualify for a certificate at any of the three levels, the applicant must provide evidence of having achieved an appropriate level of responsibility within the industry and having a technical knowledge in the sector in which they work. This should be evidenced in the applicant’s submitted curriculum vitae.
