CLAAS UK Apprenticeship Programme

Apprenticeship Graduation 2018.

This is a great time to consider an Apprenticeship with CLAAS UK, with the need for skilled people within the agricultural industry rising as technology continues to advance.
Our forward thinking dealers recognise the need to provide practical experience to a new workforce, alongside a structured learning programme and our CLAAS Apprenticeship Scheme provides the perfect platform to do this. As an Apprentice you will gain valuable work experience whilst being paid, a guaranteed job and a recognised national qualification, which will hold you in great shape for the next step of your career journey.

CLAAS UK or your chosen dealership will lead you every step of the way through your Apprentice programme offering support in both the workplace and at college. We offer 2 types of Apprenticeship today, both our Apprenticeship programmes are made up of college based block release training alongside practical experience in a CLAAS dealership. Our courses are designed to prepare you for your full time role in one of our CLAAS dealerships, with opportunities for you to progress further in the future if you wish to do so.
