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.

Aiden Kent Agricultural EngineeringAiden was awarded the Vincent Tractors scholarship last year, that included money towards tools and equipment and work experience at Vincent Tractors.
“If I learn something new at college it’s great that I can go in to work the next day and apply it. The thing I enjoy most is fixing something, at Vincent Tractors they have a Kubota which I helped to fix when the gear box went."
