The successful applicant will have demonstrable experience of working in the agricultural/land based engineering trade. Will possess an Assessor qualification or be willing to attain one with a specified period of time. There is access to the use of college vehicles but having your own transport is essential for which mileage will be paid. This post is based at the Sparsholt campus

In addition, the successful applicant will have:

- A good knowledge of Land based engineering and machinery.

- Current experience in land-based engineering and machinery.

- Ability to plan training programmes (each apprentice follows slightly different Units and employers can provide different experiences).

- Ability to assess to the required standards and provide guidance if the evidence is not to the standard

- Ability to complete documentation accurately and in a timely fashion.

- Ability to monitor apprentice's progress

- Ability to work with apprentices and be able to motivate and encourage them to complete work.
