Apprentice engineers pass tough new apprenticeship standards

Trainee technician Jacques Marshall was among the first apprentices in the UK to pass tough new industry standards.

Mr Marshall, who works at Thurlow Nunn Standen, East Anglia, was among 14 land-based service engineering apprentices who took their Lantra End Point Assessment (EPA) at the AGCO Apprenticeship Academy at Moreton Morrell College.

An EPA is the final assessment apprentices undertake to make sure they are fully competent and can do the job that they have been training for. This is the first ever cohort within the agricultural engineering sector to undertake the assessment.

Government legislation states that a rigorous and robust EPA must be delivered by a separate body to the training provider giving employers the confidence that apprentices have achieved occupational competence.

The 23-year-old from Norfolk said: “It feels great to achieve after all the hard work and effort put into the four-year programme. Agricultural technicians are highly sought after so it’s really good to know that I now have the skills and will give me a good career for life.

“College has been great, and I’ve definitely made some friends for life.”
