Ellie Nickols: Flying the Flag for Future Agricultural Technicians at ‘New Scientist Live’

Raising awareness about agricultural apprenticeships and the diverse opportunities

Inspiring the Next Generation

In an effort to raise awareness about agricultural apprenticeships and the diverse opportunities available in the agricultural industry, Ellie Nickols, our apprentice agricultural technician at our Charing Depot, recently joined forces with the AGCO aftersales training team at the ‘New Scientist Live’ exhibition in the London ExCeL.

The event served as an excellent platform for Ellie and the AGCO team to shed light on the numerous apprenticeship opportunities within the agriculture sector and at agricultural dealerships. Their mission was not only to educate attendees about the exciting prospects in this field but also to challenge stereotypes and inspire more women to consider careers as agricultural technicians.

Ellie Nickols, an aspiring role model in the world of agriculture, shared her experiences and journey as an agricultural apprentice at Crawfords during the event. Her dedication to the industry and her enthusiasm for her work demonstrated the passion and commitment that apprentices can bring to the field.

The agricultural sector, often perceived as a male-dominated industry, is undergoing a transformative shift, with women like Ellie playing a crucial role in its evolution. Ellie’s participation at ‘New Scientist Live’ highlighted that gender should never be a barrier to entering this dynamic and rewarding field.

AGCO, a global leader in the design, manufacture, and distribution of agricultural machinery and solutions, showcased its commitment to fostering the next generation of agricultural technicians. AGCO is dedicated to providing opportunities for apprentices to develop their skills, gain hands-on experience, and build a successful career in the agricultural industry.

The combined efforts of the AGCO aftersales training team and Ellie through participating in such high-profile events like ‘New Scientist Live,’ assits with paving the way for a more inclusive, diverse, and skilled agricultural workforce. With dedicated individuals like Ellie, forward-thinking companies like AGCO, Crawfords and the extensive dealer network, the future of agriculture looks promising and inclusive.
