JAGUAR LAND ROVER JOBS BOOST FOR APPRENTICES
BOOMING Jaguar Land Rover is launching its 2013 apprenticeship programme that will see some of them working at its new engine plant in Staffordshire.
The recruitment campaign for 150 apprentices comes just days after JLR announced that it is creating another 800 jobs to cope with forecast demand for its new models which includes the new Jaguar F TYPE due this summer.
The scheme includes approximately 90 Advanced and 60 Higher Apprenticeships and the closing date is January 31. Higher Apprenticeships are open to A-Level (or equivalent) qualified candidates whose qualifications include maths and a science or technology subject. They will undertake a comprehensive training programme to achieve a number of NVQ level qualifications as well as an undergraduate engineering degree. Higher Apprenticeships will take approximately six years to complete split between university and time in the workplace.
Advanced Apprenticeships are open to all GCSE qualified candidates. They will study for a NVQ2 in Performing Engineering Operations, a NVQ3 in a chosen trade, a Technical Certificate and training in key skills such as Communication, IT and Numeracy. The Advanced Apprenticeship will take between three and four years to complete split between the workplace and college.
Apprentices will then go on to fulfil roles in a variety of manufacturing and product development functions at Jaguar Land Rover's sites in the West Midlands and the North West. This includes Jaguar Land Rover's £355 milllion new advanced engine manufacturing facility currently under construction in the south of the county.
Kirsty Scott, Head of Organisation Performance says: "We have recruited more than 300 apprentices in the last two years and are pleased to be recruiting another significant intake of new apprentices in 2013. We have ambitious plans for growth and Jaguar Land Rover is committed to providing the highest quality of both practical and academic training to develop future talent for the business."
