Land-based Engineering Certificate

Level 2 • Full-time • Bicton College


If you love science, technology, engineering, or information technology, then a career in land-based engineering could be for you. The skills and types of land-based engineering include diagnostics repair and testing, all in the context of diesel and petrol engines, equipment controlled by GPS technology and integrated into environmental information – a fantastic mix of innovation and problem solving. It’s not all about farming either, everything concerned with the upkeep and control of the countryside, forestry, sports grounds and open spaces involves the application of engineering solutions. We offer both full-time and apprenticeship routes for school leavers. Once you have completed the Level 3 qualification you will be able to work all over the world in a range of careers maintaining and repairing land-based machinery and technology. Modern agriculture is amazing and if you look more closely you will see things that will truly impress you. No longer is this an industry caught in a technological backwater. The career opportunities are fantastic and those colleges, training providers and universities involved will tell you that the job opportunities are excellent with many more jobs than there are people to fill them. This intermediate qualification is equivalent to five GCSEs and is an ideal starting point to learn the basics for a career in land-based engineering.

Land-based Engineering Apprenticeship

Level 2 • Work-based • Bicton College


We work with a wide range of local and regional employers providing apprenticeship training for land-based engineering. Whether that is farm machinery or grounds keeping on an estate or resort. To follow the apprenticeship route and earn while you learn, you will need to find a company with an element of land-based engineering to employ you. The majority of your time will be spent in the workplace with one day a week at college learning theory and the latest maintenance and repair techniques. To become fully qualified you must complete the Level 3 qualification. There are numerous machines available in this sector and your career could see you working on precision farming machinery, carrying out a variety of tasks: the construction and maintenance of mechatronics, remote sensors, robotic systems and farming automation; designing, installing and maintaining dairy equipment; maintaining and repairing grounds care machinery on golf courses or football grounds, off-road vehicles such as AVTs used by land owners and farmer on larger estates, forestry equipment such as chainsaws and timber production plants or food technology manufacturing plant operations and repairs. There has never been a better time to apply for a Land-based service Engineer apprenticeship. The land-based engineering sector is technologically advancing at a fascinating rate, encompassing systems such as precision farming aids like satellite guidance, telematics, electronic controls and driverless technology. Skilled engineers are in high demand and a land-based engineering apprenticeship is your way into this industry.

Land-Based Engineering Diploma

Level 3 • Full-time • Bicton College


If you love science, technology, engineering, or information technology, then a career in land-based engineering could be for you.

We offer both full-time and apprenticeship routes for school leavers. Once you have completed the Level 3 qualification you will be able to work all over the world in a range of careers maintaining and repairing land-based machinery and technology. This level is ideal if you want in-depth insight into the mechanics and science for land-based engineering. You might cover things like inspecting and testing land-based machinery. You’ll also gain plenty of practical experience in your choice of skills. Modern agriculture is amazing and if you look more closely you will see things that will truly impress you. No longer is this an industry caught in a technological backwater. The career opportunities are fantastic and those colleges, training providers and universities involved will tell you that the job opportunities are excellent with many more jobs than there are people to fill them. There has never been a better time to consider working in the land based engineering sector. With the coming together (in what has become known as the “perfect storm”) of climate change, scarce water, ever increasing world populations and associated food shortages, not to mention insufficient energy resources, the need for the broad range of skills embodied in traditional land based (or agricultural) engineers has never been more evident.
