We offer Apprenticeships We offer ApprenticeshipsAs part of our commitment to continually employing young people to enter our aftersales departments, to ensure robust succession planning and to provide an effective and strong aftersales team, we introduced a new foundation year to our Apprenticeship Scheme in 2010.

During this first year our trainees undertake supervised training and are mentored by our highly skilled, qualified, technicians. The foundation year also encompasses block release training with Easton College, near Norwich, to further their knowledge.

This association with Easton College was a new venture in 2011 and we are excited about developing this relationship to offer a new and improved training scheme at TNS. Following this foundation year the trainees could then have the opportunity to join the AGCO Apprenticeship Scheme in association with Warwickshire College.
