EDUCATION PATHWAYS

At Jaguar Land Rover, we have have a clear challenge. We want to show parents, teachers and children that engineering can deliver a lifetime of opportunities for young people, and overcome the shortage of STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) skills faced by the industry.

Today’s curious young minds are tomorrow’s engineers, designers and innovators. We value imagination, creativity and the spirit of innovation in our business and are looking for students with these qualities. 

Our ‘Inspiring Tomorrow’s Engineers’ global school education programme offers a range of activities and projects designed to increase students’ interest and enjoyment of STEM subjects and careers while making them more attractive to employers. 
By 2020 'Inspiring Tomorrow's Engineers', our global STEM education programme, will have engaged with five million young people worldwide.

LAND ROVER 4X4 IN SCHOOLS TECHNOLOGY CHALLENGE

Land Rover is renowned the world over for extreme capability and strength. Our engineers are the driving force behind our successful vehicles.

We’ve taken key elements of our product development process and created the global Land Rover 4x4 in Schools Technology Challenge so students can get a deep insight into our business, from electrical and software to chassis and powertrain engineering.

In the annual competition, teams of 11-19 years olds design and build radio-controlled, four-wheel-drive vehicles with Land Rover’s all-terrain characteristics. Over a school year, the students research, design and manufacture their vehicle, and perform tests before they compete with other schools. The winners go on to regional finals, with successful teams progressing to national and global competitions.

JAGUAR PRIMARY SCHOOL CHALLENGE

At Jaguar, we have always believed that a car is the closest thing you can create to something that is alive. So we work hard to ensure every car we produce combines performance and beauty like no other.

Our Jaguar Primary School Challenge gives students aged five to 11 the chance to become Jaguar engineers and design a new racing car. Each team operates as a mini-business and must design and manufacture the fastest car possible. Teams are supported by Jaguar mentors and gain confidence and key employability skills as well as a deeper understanding of STEM subjects.

All school teams compete in regional finals with successful teams going through to the national final. The Jaguar Primary School Challenge currently takes place in the UK, Australia, the USA, Greece, Brazil, South Africa and Slovakia.

EDUCATION CENTRES

With cutting-edge tools and lean processes, our design, engineering and manufacturing manufacturing facilities are some of the most advanced in the industry. Our Education Centres offer behind-the-scenes educational visits at our vehicle manufacturing sites in Liverpool, Solihull and Castle Bromwich, our Engine Manufacturing Centre in Wolverhampton and the Design and Engineering Centre in Gaydon.

School, college and university students see theoretical learning in practice and learn about our apprentice and graduate career opportunities. All visits involve a guided tour and classroom activities aligned to the national curriculum which are tailored to school requirements.

Our Education Centres also run holiday clubs for students who are interested in STEM and other careers at Jaguar Land Rover. For more information, please contact your local education centre:
