Apprentices

There are two routes within the Apprenticeship Scheme.

 

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 our global success. You’ll also be rewarded as you develop your skills and start on the road to building an impressive career.

Whether you join us as an Advanced or Degree Apprentice depends on your education level and your interests.

The Advanced Scheme runs for four years and it’s designed for those who are taking their GCSEs this academic year or have already completed them. The Degree Schemes run for six years, and are appropriate for those who are in their final year of A Levels or have completed the appropriate A Levels or vocational qualifications required.

Further details on the amount of credits and awards required can be found below in each Scheme’s What you’ll need section.

Please only make one application for our Apprentice vacancies. Read all scheme information carefully and apply to the one position that aligns most with your qualifications, skills, experience and interests. We will not process any duplicate applications.

BEHAVIOURS

 

When it comes to selecting the right people to become Advanced or Degree apprentices, it’s as much about attitude as it is about vocational and academic success. That’s why in addition to the qualifications we require from you, we’ll also look for you to possess the following key behaviours. From problem-solving abilities to an enthusiasm for our industry, these are all attributes that will be vital in your role at Jaguar Land Rover and will be assessed throughout the application process.

 
    • Here, we’ll look for you to demonstrate an enthusiasm for learning by seeking out opportunities to increase understanding, taking on board feedback and applying new skills.

    • We’ll look for your willingness to help others and will want to see you making an effort to get on with people, with an awareness of your own impact on colleagues. It is also important for us to know you will be able to really contribute to activities, communicate effectively and be respectful to the views of others.

    • We want you to show an interest in how things work and an enjoyment of practical hands on activities. It is also important for you to be able to demonstrate an understanding of what is involved in an apprenticeship, and the responsibility that will be yours.

    • This is where we’ll need you to demonstrate an ability to follow instructions or rules, along with good attention to detail, checking for errors and looking for ways to improve things.

    • Q: AM I CLASSED AS A STUDENT?
      A: From our perspective, you’re a full time employee and will be treated as such. However, please talk with your college about the additional benefits associated with student status.

      Q: ARE TRAVEL EXPENSES COVERED FOR INDUCTION WEEK?
      A: No, as the venue is classed as your place of work. However, Wolverhampton Apprentices are an exception to this rule during induction week as they will not be at their home college during this time.

      Q: IS ACCOMMODATION PROVIDED OR SUPPORTED?
      A: One of the colleges has halls of residence. In addition we have an accommodation officer in place that can provide support.

      Q: WHAT DO I DO DURING COLLEGE CLOSURE TIMES?
      A: If you don’t have appropriate holiday days accumulated, you’ll have a placement with your home department.

      Q: CAN I CHOOSE MY PATHWAY?
      A: We’ll give you an opportunity to state your preferences after outlining your options. Our team then establish the best fit between your aspirations and our business needs. However, if the majority want a certain route we balance this with the business needs that the cohort has been hired for. This means that you may not get your first choice. If we have to choose who gets which position, the people with the highest Assessment Centre score will get the first choices.

      Q: CAN MY QUALIFICATIONS BE COUNTED TOWARDS MY APPRENTICESHIP AND REDUCE THE TIME I NEED TO QUALIFY?
      A: Yes. If there’s a sufficient match between your previous qualifications, we’ll look at prior learning accreditation against the pathway you’re aligned to.

      Q: WHEN WILL I KNOW WHICH SITE I’LL BE BASED AT?
      A: That will be an outcome of the pathway you’re aligned to, and will be decided during induction week.

      Q: IF I DO NOT OBTAIN THE REQUIRED QUALIFICATIONS, CAN YOU KEEP THE OFFER OPEN FOR ME NEXT YEAR?
      A: Unfortunately due to the high number of applications this is not possible. However, if you have progressed through our recruitment process we would strongly recommend you consider re-applying the following year provided you expect to acquire the necessary qualifications.

      Q: CAN I APPLY TO THE DEGREE APPRENTICE PROGRAMME AT ANY POINT OR AS I COMPLETE THE ADVANCED PROGRAMME?
      A: Upon completion of an Advanced Apprenticeship you could discuss this option with your line manager. However the Advanced Programme is not designed as a stepping stone into the Degree Apprenticeship Programme.

      Q: CAN I GO TO MY LOCAL COLLEGE?
      A: You cannot choose your college as we have built up strong relationships with our learning providers who are focused on meeting our business needs.

      Q: HOW CAN I MOVE UP THE PAY GRADES?
      A: You will be assessed periodically throughout your Apprenticeship. If you meet the target criteria you will enjoy incremental increases every 6 months. This will be explained in further detail in your induction.

      Q: AM I GUARANTEED A JOB AT THE END OF THE SCHEME?
      A: We can’t guarantee you a job. Various factors will be taken into consideration, including your performance on the scheme. However, over the last seven years all of our apprentices have been given an opportunity on completion of their apprenticeship and have taken up positions in the company.
