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.
