Advanced Apprenticeships with Rob Gill and Amanda Murphy from Jaguar Land Rover

10th November 2016 @ 15:15 - 16:15


Jaguar Land Rover is delighted to be able to talk to Year 11 students about their Advanced Apprenticeship Scheme in these live interactive webinars. The sessions coincide with JLR’s application window which runs to the end of December for the September 2017 intake.

Become an Apprentice at Jaguar Land Rover and you’ll learn from the best. You’ll work on projects that have a real impact on the company’s global success. You’ll also be rewarded as you develop your skills and start on the road to building an impressive career. The Advanced Scheme is designed for those who have at least completed GCSEs and runs for four years.

About the Schemes

Join JLR as an Advanced Apprentice and you’ll combine college-based learning with hands-on training gained at one of JLR’s manufacturing plants or vehicle workshops. Your first year will be spent at college, learning the engineering basics you’ll need in your role. Outside of college term times, you’ll enrich your studies working alongside members of JLR’s skilled workforce. During your second year, you’ll continue to gain practical experience at JLR’s facilities, attending college two days per week whilst you study for further qualifications. This will reduce to one day per week in your final years.

To apply for the Advanced Apprenticeship Scheme, you’ll need Maths (higher paper) and English Language GCSE C Grade or above (Grade 4-9) or an academic equivalent. In addition, you will need three GCSEs (or equivalent) including a Natural Science, Engineering or Technology related subject at C Grade or above (or equivalent), or as an alternative, Engineering vocational qualification Level 3 of 90 credit value (540 GLH).

Session Format: JLR will use these sessions to introduce the programme and to answer questions in a relaxed and informal way. Each session will typically involve three or four schools/colleges and would be led by current JLR apprentices talking about their career path and experiences. They are fully interactive so your students would be able to ask questions and share their own thoughts.

Suitable for: Schools & Colleges in the West Midlands and Merseyside

The sessions would be relevant for Year 11 students with a STEM leaning. JLR has also asked if each school/college taking part can aim to have a minimum of 10 students participating. The maximum depends on the room and technology you are using. Parents would be very welcome if you feel this is appropriate and have the space.

Preparation/Pre-reading: Details of the Advanced Apprenticeship Scheme will be made available to students in advance of the session. It will be helpful for students to consider questions in advance.

The IT Setup: The setup is similar to Skype, using a pc and webcam, although students take part as a group with the image projected on a whiteboard rather than as individuals in front of lots of pcs. We will work with your IT department to ensure everything is set up and working prior to the event. If you have dedicated videoconferencing equipment, that is perfectly compatible too. The sessions are generally limited to 3 or 4 schools to maintain the interactive nature of the experience.

Booking a Place: If you have a group that you would like to take part in this event, please contact us via email, letting us know which session you are interested in. We will book your place subject to availability.
