The agriculture and food production industry has some of the most advanced and progressive engineering in the UK. If you enjoy the outdoor life and would like to work on a variety of technologies, a career in land-based engineering or construction plant could be for you.
Operate and drive tractors, combine harvesters or other farm vehicles to clear and cultivate land and to sow and harvest plants and crops.
Farm workers perform a variety of tasks, by hand and machine, to produce and harvest crops and to breed and rear cattle, sheep, pigs and poultry.
Farmers and related occupations cultivate arable crops, fruits and trees, and raise cattle, sheep, pigs, poultry and other livestock for consumption.
I did land-based engineering at Level 2 full-time here before I became an apprentice and it helped me to learn a lot before going into work. When I'm here I get to learn and do things for my portfolio that I don't do day-to-day at work. I get on with everyone here, it's a really nice working environment.
I really want to be an excavator driver, so this course has allowed me to get the qualifications for that whilst learning the theory as well.
