John Deere has just marked the 30th anniversary of its renowned apprenticeship program with an open day to recruit the next generation of technicians to work across its agriculture, turf, and parts business.
Over 1,000 apprentices have qualified since 1992, and the company is keen to showcase the exciting career path that lies ahead of those who complete the course.
If you are considering changing your career then here is an exciting opportunity for you. On 6 October, John Deere and the scheme’s training provider, ProVQ, will open the doors of its new training center in Upper Saxondale, Nottinghamshire.
The open day will be held on 6 October, with three sessions being run at 10am, 1pm, and 3pm. Refreshments will be provided throughout the day, and entry is free, although pre-booking is a requirement as places are limited.
The candidates will be offered guided tours, practical demonstrations, and driving experiences. This training center was opened in 2021. John Deere has invested £1.5 million in it.
John Deere’s apprenticeship program sees technicians working within the company’s dealership network as paid employees while completing either a two or three-year course comprising on-the-job practical learning and classroom studies.
Three courses make up the program; Ag Tech – focusing on agricultural machinery, Turf Tech – focusing on professional turf equipment, and Parts Tech – focusing on parts service and support.
