Land-based Engineering Apprenticeship

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 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.

The Advanced Level 3 Land-based Technology apprenticeship combines training with paid employment, you will work at a Land-based Engineering service workshop and study at Duchy College to gain a nationally recognised qualification. You will be supported by an Assessor who will monitor progress and regularly visit your work placement to give assistance and guidance to complete your qualification.
