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.

There are two routes within the Apprenticeship Scheme; Advanced and Degree. 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.

 
    • WHAT TO EXPECT

      Join us as an Advanced Apprentice and you’ll combine college-based learning with hands-on training gained at one of our manufacturing plants or vehicle workshops. Your first year will be spent at college, learning the engineering basics you’ll need in your role with us. Outside of college term times, you’ll enrich your studies working alongside members of our skilled workforce. During your second year, you’ll continue to gain practical experience at our 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.
