We want to convince all young people – boys and girls – what a brilliant, inspiring, creative and diverse career engineering can be.

CORONAVIRUS IMPACT ON JAGUAR LAND ROVER’S EDUCATION PROGRAMMES

In line with the UK Government’s evolving guidance for managing the Covid-19 pandemic, at Jaguar Land Rover we have been reviewing our Education outreach activity for the academic year 2020 – 2021.

In order to protect the health and wellbeing of students, teachers and our employees, we are unfortunately unable to operate in-person activities at our on-site Education Centres.  We are instead offering virtual education engagement and career insight programmes targeted at those pupils most in need. For more information please contact Nikki Armstrong, narmstr5@jaguarlandrover.com

We will continue to monitor this unprecedented situation and adapt our Education Programmes accordingly.

EDUCATION PATHWAYS

At Jaguar Land Rover, we have a clear challenge. We want to show parents, teachers and students 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 student interest and enjoyment of STEM subjects and careers while making them more attractive to employers.

Learning and development

There’s a revolution underway in the automotive industry – the future will be driven by the possibilities created by new technologies and, as the largest investor in automotive research and development in the UK, we want enthusiastic employees with enquiring minds and a commitment to push the boundaries.

Our education programmes offer students the opportunity to see theoretical learning in practice and discover our career opportunities. With age-appropriate practical hands-on activities, problem-solving challenges and team tasks - all linked to the national curriculum from KS2 to KS4 - students are encouraged to use their maths and literacy skills, inspired to embrace STEM, and driven to find out more about the exciting career opportunities available within the automotive industry.

FURTHERING FUTURES

At Jaguar Land Rover, we believe that recruiting the brightest minds is key to succeeding in the rapidly changing global business environment. Only 9% of engineers in the UK automotive industry are female. While attracting talent today is more competitive than ever, things are changing for the better.

We are tackling the attitude that engineering is a male-dominated industry head-on by inspiring young people to explore the next generation of exciting career opportunities in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).

Our ‘Furthering Futures’ course has been designed for talented female STEM A-Level students who are interested in Jaguar Land Rover's Early Careers programmes but would like to learn more about the opportunities and application process before they apply. More than 90 course participants have secured apprenticeships to date.

Work experience

The automotive landscape is undergoing a period of profound transformation. As mobility and related technologies continue to evolve, it is an exciting time to be part of the automotive industry. At Jaguar Land Rover we are embracing a sustainable future, ready to face the challenges and trends of a global automotive revolution.

By undertaking work experience at Jaguar Land Rover, you will get to be a part of the UK’s largest luxury automotive manufacturer, built around two iconic British car brands: Land Rover, the world’s leading manufacturer of premium all-wheel-drive vehicles; and Jaguar, one of the world’s premier luxury sports saloon and sports car marques.
