Our Level 2 Technical Certificate in Land-Based Engineering is for anyone who is looking to start a career within the land-based engineering sector. Modern land-based engineering is not just about building larger and more powerful tractors and farm machinery. The skills required include robotics, computer-based imaging, GPS technology, science-based solutions, climate forecasting, technological solutions, environmental controls and much more.
Although farming and food production is a major focus, the land-based engineering industry extends into everything from the countryside and forestry to sports grounds and open spaces.
This qualification could start you off on the first steps on your journey to an exciting and rewarding career. Additional skills you will develop in this course are teamwork, working outdoors, problem-solving and analytical and IT skills. You will also be able to develop employability skills alongside gaining confidence in becoming an independent learner.
This course is delivered predominantly through theory lessons, some practical work, group seminars and internal and external professional development (industry/work placement). You will also have individual tutorials with your Course Manager regularly to monitor and track your progress.
