P Tuckwell Ltd has an enormous empathy with young people and training, developing and helping their growth is a corner stone of the company’s ethos.
Over the years we have put over 150 young people through apprentices and many of these have forged successful and flourishing careers with the company. In fact our service director Colin Coombs started with the company as a 16 year old and now is responsible for 7 workshops and over 80 skilled technicians.
Promotion from within has always been a key part of the company’s success and this all starts from a strong apprenticeship. We offer apprenticeships in both the Agricultural and Turf industries and in both service and our parts division.
Training is carried out at the UK’s only purpose-built apprentice training facility for Ag and Turf, recently opened by John Deere and training provider ProVQ at St James Business Park, Radcliffe-on-Trent in Nottinghamshire.
Away from the class room training continues back at the local P Tuckwell branch were the class room skills can be put into practise in the field and learning about real life situations, our chosen industry and further life skills.
After three years Ag and Turf Tech apprenticeships will achieve IMI Level 2 and 3 Diplomas in Landbased Engineering.
Managing Director James Tuckwell is a strong believer in the programme and in the development of young people….
‘I was given a great start to life and leant my trade both on our farm, in our workshops and in the classroom. We now want to give these opportunities to the next generation and a good apprenticeship at P Tuckwell Ltd is the foundation for a successful career. We pride ourselves on developing young people and I can personally assure you that an apprenticeship with us will be a great start to life’
