Modern Apprenticeship in Land Based Engineering Level 3
Employees are expected to work on a wide range of valuable specialist vehicles and machines used in farming, forestry, horticultural businesses, ground care and sports facilities including golf courses and parks. They keep equipment in good working order through planned maintenance; carrying out any diagnostic and repair work when required. When qualified, employees often work alone in the field. This requires good knowledge of health and safety legislation and working alone policies. The apprentice may specialise in agriculture, arboriculture/forestry or ground care machinery.
