TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT

At Jaguar Land Rover, the learning never stops. We believe that life gets better when you learn new skills. That is why we are committed to lifelong learning. We encourage every one of our employees to extend their skills and knowledge through a range of first class programmes.

You can gain any qualification you dare to. These schemes make people’s lives better, enhance careers and are vital in shaping the future of the company.

It is essential that people are curious about things and take their own development seriously, in order to be better equipped to move into different roles, projects or career paths. The value of our people lies in their continued development and in our commitment to invest in their learning and growth in order that they can optimise their performance, whatever their role.

An essential ingredient in our success is the creation of an environment where managers actively share what they are learning and encourage others to grow and where they coach and mentor others to maximise their team’s performance. That’s why we are building The Jaguar Land Rover Learning Academy; a home for lifelong learning. We are creating engaging, relevant and personalised learning content and experiences that can impact personal, team and organisational performance. Here, we are seeking to enable people to learn, create, grow and to support others to do the same; daring each other to embrace the changes and the challenges we face and ensure our future is bright.

REWARDS AND BENEFITS

You’ll start on circa £20,000. Completing the scheme means your earning potential will be optimised thanks to your qualification. Your tuition and course fees are paid for, in full, by us, plus you’ll get a generous holiday allowance. So there’ll be plenty of opportunity to spend the savings from the deals and discounts we’ve agreed with retailers and using the sports facilities available at most of our sites.

Meet some apprentices

Raisa
Maintenance Apprentice

“I chose Jaguar Land Rover because the structured and detailed Apprenticeship programme really appealed to me and my working style.”

I’m a Maintenance Engineer in my second year of the Advanced Manufacturing Apprenticeship Pathway. I was looking at a variety of apprenticeships, but I chose Jaguar Land Rover because they are one of Britain’s largest car manufacturers and the structured and detailed apprenticeship programme really appealed to me and my working style. One of the greatest aspects of being on any of the apprenticeship programmes, is the support you get to succeed. I started with a year at the training provider at Aston, but my development has only increased since being on-site in Solihull.

Ezra
Design Engineer

“With self-driving vehicles becoming a reality, we’ll be looking at how people will make the most of their time in the car. My job is to continue to design cars that create experiences that customers love.””

As strange as this sounds, I didn’t know much about the world of engineering until a group of Jaguar Land Rover apprentices came into my school to talk about what they do. I was amazed that engineering was really suited to my skillset. And I realised that creative thinking and problem solving are exactly what is needed to do well as an apprentice here. I’ve been here three years now, working as a Design Engineer, and it has been harder than I thought, but the support is incredible. And the network of other apprentices is huge. There’s always someone who will listen to you and so many people you can learn from.

Kenneth
Connected Car Integration Engineer

“I chose Jaguar Land Rover because it’s a Great British Brand and I came here because I wanted to write code.”

It’s so exciting! 5G technology, streams of data and advanced cloud and server based platforms are allowing me to help our cars adapt in the moment to drive efficiency for the customer. Whether that’s predicting when a car needs to warm the seats or start up, or when an engine needs to change performance to match the conditions it’s driving in. Not to mention how we update battery range or infotainment systems in the blink of an eye.
