Apprenticeships. Training the Technicians of tomorrow.

With modern agriculture increasingly relying on fewer, higher capacity machines, service is the lynchpin of any forward thinking dealership. Farmers and contractors cannot afford to have prime movers standing idle for too long, making the availability of well trained, highly skilled service personnel essential, and often an important consideration in the buying decision.

CLAAS UK established its own Agricultural Technician Apprenticeship scheme in order to ensure that dealers have access to the skilled technicians that modern agriculture will require in the future.

The CLAAS Agricultural Technician Apprenticeship scheme is run in conjunction with Reaseheath College near Nantwich, Cheshire and Barony College near Dumfries, with the successful student gaining a National Diploma in Landbased Technology. In addition the student will gain additional qualifications that will help enhance their career, plus the successful student after four years will have achieved LTA (Landbased Technician Accreditation) TIER 2 status.

Over the duration of the four-year programme students will attend set block periods staying at Reaseheath or Barony College. In addition to gaining experience working with their sponsoring dealers, the students also spend time at the CLAAS UK headquarters at Saxham undertaking specific product training. In year three, this is followed with training at the CLAAS headquarters at Harsewinkel in Germany.

Whilst at Reaseheath or Barony the students will have the added benefit of being able to take advantage of everything these well respected colleges have to offer, from addressing any key-skill weaknesses to enjoying the excellent sporting and social facilities.
