Joining Drummond & Etheridge Ltd as an apprentice allows you the opportunity to achieve your goals in a supportive environment whilst working with the latest machinery and technology. We have designed an apprenticeship programme (utilising MITO) offering regular classroom sessions to complete and sign off theory components as well as daily on-the-job training with our Senior Technicians, Foreman and Training Manager.
You also receive regular remuneration increases related MITO credit level achievements. We also assist with tooling (including computers), fees and offer an overseas exchange scheme once you are qualified to a John Deere dealership in the UK. Most apprentices will join us in conjunction with their pre-trade at Polytechnic, at which point they will be released one or twos day per week for work experience. Completing the pre-trade and carrying out work experience on-site allows future employees to fully understand what is required of them to complete a modern apprenticeship.
