TAG Academy

A great future and a great place to work!

We have branches from the West Midlands to West Wales and as a major agricultural dealership we have developed a programme called TAG Academy which is aimed at enhancing employment opportunities and long term employee potential.

The programme is managed in conjunction with ProVQ Training which is based in Nottingham and carries out most of the John Deere University technician training programmes. Candidates spend eight two week blocks at college and the remaining time at their place of employment, where they are assigned a senior technician as a mentor as they progress through the Land-Based Technician Accreditation (LTA) scheme. It is part of a five year training programme from which participants can move forward attaining Master Technician level or LTA4 accreditation.

TAG Academy was developed by Managing Director, Ben Tallis and Group Service Manager, Richard Allard and structures apprentices to encourage maximum success rates from entry level through to graduation. Once qualifications have been achieved, candidates may get the opportunity to experience a six month international exchange programme, working at a similar agricultural dealership in New Zealand.

Reciprocal exchange with the New Zealand dealer means that students then get the opportunity to gain experience in the same role in a different company and country. Previous exchangee Ashleigh Ridge, finished her Parts Apprenticeship and also attended Polytech in New Zealand studying Office Management. “I would recommend this to anyone just starting out, said Ashleigh. “You get a job, an education and an opportunity to see the other side of the world. It’s been a really great experience working in the UK, and the chance to visit London, Birmingham, The Royal Welsh Show and lots of other places”

The success of Tallis Amos Group is down to a number of highly important factors, of which customer satisfaction is arguably the most important. Good quality franchised equipment, backed-up by a solid After-Sales Service, consisting of Parts supply and Service repair and staff capabilities will ensure continued growth. Only by employing high quality staff, who are fully trained, qualified and accredited, can further growth be achieved.
