At CLAAS, we only want the cream of the crop for our aspiring partners of tomorrow.
Harper Adams students were invited to learn about careers available to them with CLAAS during a special presentation day recently.
The international harvester manufacturer organised a programme of speakers for the event from within the company, as well as bringing a selection of their machines to the soil hall on campus.
Students from across all courses were invited to meet the team and learn more about opportunities available within the CLAAS Group and the CLAAS UK dealer network.
John Palmer, Training and Development Manager said: “At CLAAS, we only want the cream of the crop for our aspiring partners of tomorrow.
“We take pride in supporting colleagues to develop new found skills, train to be the very best, and most of all, to grow their future into something special.”
CLAAS has a long established relationship with the University College in Shropshire, offering sandwich placements and scholarship programmes in addition to supporting the on-going development of precision engineering.
The winner of the sixth CLAAS scholarship for Agricultural Engineering was recently announced as Yale Brewer. He can now look forward to his second and fourth year fees being covered, a one-year sandwich placement at the CLAAS Group headquarters at Harsewinkel, and a summer placement with CLAAS UK.
Also speaking at the event was Harper Adams graduate Dean Cottey (BEng Hons Agricultural Engineering 2005-2009) and current Harper Adams placement students Kathryn Shepherd, Dan Smail, Philip Watson, Doug Fleming and David Follows.
