Reaseheath College is one of the UK’s leading specialist land-based colleges, based in Nantwich, Cheshire. This College has an excellent reputation for its construction plant engineering courses. It’s the perfect partner for SMT GB in delivering the SMT apprenticeship scheme.
Reaseheath college have recently invested £8 million into a brand-new Advanced Engineering and Agri-Tech Centre, which is one of the most sophisticated education centres of its type in Great Britain.
You will study towards a nationally recognised apprenticeship, whilst being employed by SMT GB. During your time as an apprentice you will learn through a combination of on the job training and formal college-based education at Reaseheath College, in Nantwich.
The apprenticeship is 4 years long in total, with the first 3 years being in a block teaching format.
The second year is spent slightly differently to the first and third as apprentices experience other parts of SMT’s servicing network across Great Britain. This requires apprentices to work in SMT’s Machine Preparation Centre located in Immingham, Lincolnshire and the Used Equipment and Parts Centre located in Bruntingthorpe, Leicestershire.
The fourth and final year of the SMT GB apprenticeship is an inhouse improver year working with SMT GB at one of their locations across Great Britain.
At the end of the 4 years, the apprenticeship awarded is level 3 Land-based Service Engineering Technician.
