Crawfords are celebrating their talented apprentices as they graduate this month and begin permanent roles with the company.
After a three-year comprehensive programme, Sam Pollard and George Fenner, two of our graduating apprentices, have graduated to become qualified Agricultural Technicians at our Kent and Essex depots.
The programme combines classroom and workshop training with practical, work-based development to lay the foundations for a successful career in the agricultural industry. Approximately 42+ months overall to include 20% off the job training that is gained by attending 36 weeks approximately at Moreton Morrell College in Warwickshire and additional enhanced technical and product training with AGCO, which is delivered at their nearby Training Centre.
Over the past few years, Crawfords Agricultural apprentice Technicians have come from several educational backgrounds including school leavers, university and college graduates, even those already in employment looking for a career change.
Laura Crawford, Group HR Manager at Crawfords said: “We are passionate about supporting our apprentices to fully equip them with the knowledge, skills and experience required to succeed in their role at Crawfords. No prior experience is necessary, and we encourage anyone interested in kick-starting their career with Crawfords to get in touch.
“Our graduates who have just completed the AGCO Apprenticeship programme have done a tremendous job. Their success is a testament to their determination and willingness to learn, and the support of the wider team at Crawfords. As one of the leading employers in agriculture we’re very much looking forward to welcoming a new group of apprentices this year.”
The hunt is now on for the next cohort of apprentices to work with one of the UK’s leading agricultural dealerships. Applications to be part of Crawford’s next apprentice programme are now open to all and close on 27th June.
