UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak visited students at Writtle University College today (Thursday, September 21) to discuss food and the farming sector.
Today, the PM joined the university’s engineering apprentices for a lesson on tractor maintenance before talking to students studying agriculture and animal science degrees.
Our apprentices in land-based service engineering spoke to Sunak about their workshop, while demonstrating their understanding of agricultural machinery.
These students are part of a partnership launched last year between Writtle University College, CNH Industrial and Ernest Doe & Sons which seeks to address the skills gap for specialist engineers within the agriculture sector.
