DEERE STARTS HERE
What qualifications do I need to apply?
There are no minimum education requirements, although you should be aged 16 -19,
with a willingness to learn and an interest in working at a John Deere dealership.
What qualifications will I get?
City & Guilds Level 2 Diploma in Work-Based Landbased Engineering Operations,
progressing to Level 3 for Ag Tech and Turf Tech engineering apprentices; NVQ Level 2 in
Parts Operations progressing to Level 3 for Parts Tech apprentices. Ag Tech and Turf Tech
apprentices can go on to complete their education for a fourth year to gain the John Deere
Diploma and register at LTA Level 2 in the industry’s Landbased Technician Accreditation
scheme, while starting their adult training within the John Deere University.
What does it cost?
There are no tuition fees. The employing dealer pays the apprentice’s wages and covers
the tuition and accommodation costs for the residential training.
How do I get a job at a John Deere dealership?
Most candidates will already have a job in a John Deere dealership when they apply for an
apprenticeship but, if that’s not the case for you, we can help you find one when you apply.
Why choose a John Deere apprenticeship?
John Deere’s Ag Tech training scheme was introduced in 1992, making it the longest
running programme of its kind in the UK. In 1997 the scheme won a National Training
Award, the only one ever made to an agricultural machinery training programme. More
than 500 apprentices have graduated through all three John Deere schemes – Ag Tech,
Turf Tech and Parts Tech. In addition, 13 Ag Tech graduates have received a national City
& Guilds Medal for Excellence award, a unique achievement in the engineering sector.
