School: Bishop Heber High School, Malpas
Job title: Maintenance engineer
Ambition: Fabrication engineer or lecturer
“I began studying engineering at Reaseheath on a Level 1 schools programme so I felt very at home when I became a full time student.
“The Level 2 Certificate gives you a good base of knowledge and the Level 3 gives you a balance of theory and practical sessions, both of which are well taught. The classrooms and workshops are modern and provide a professional environment in which to learn.
“The diagnosis equipment is up to date and you’re taught how to use it on a wide range of machinery. I work on a dairy farm and my duties include looking after the tractors and equipment, so these skills are very useful.
“The teaching staff are very supportive and experienced…and there’s a good social scene on campus.”
We’re industry focused and we have extensive industry links, which is good news when it comes to your career prospects. Many of our former students have found work with some of the best manufacturers in the world.
Become career ready and ‘learn by doing’ in our Agri-Tech training facility with electronic diagnostic equipment, hydraulic training rigs, electronics lab and industry-standard workshops.
Perfect your diagnostic skills by working on our high quality running engine rigs. Our exciting Agri-Tech facility, built in 2018, was developed in partnership with major agricultural companies such as JCB, Case IH, CLAAS UK and New Holland.
You may have the chance to join our European study tour and visit top shows and exhibitions to gain first-hand experience of the latest advances in agricultural engineering technology and manufacturing.
Our partnership with market-leading manufacturers means that you’ll be learning with state-of-the-art technologically advanced machinery and equipment – including the very latest GPS precision farming technology.
“Our Land-Based Engineering programme is a very successful partnership with great benefits for Reaseheath students, CNH Industrial and its dealers. In product support, we look to recruit people with a great attitude, good fundamental skills and a broad knowledge of land-based equipment. This is what the engineering department at Reaseheath seems very good at producing.”
