Jaguar Land Rover (JLR), the UK's leading automotive employer, is set to launch its search for the largest ever intake of Apprentices to join its 2012 training programme. The Apprentice programme, which this year is searching for both Advanced and Higher Apprentices, will launch on Monday February 6th – coincident with National Apprenticeship week.
Following the appointment of 114 Advanced Apprentices in 2011, JLR is this year looking for a record 133 Apprentices to join its growing business. This will consist of 109 Advanced Apprenticeships and, for the first time, 24 Higher Apprentices who will work towards the acquisition of a series of NVQs and a degree in a comprehensive training programme open to A-level qualified candidates.
The Advanced Apprenticeships scheme is open to GCSE qualified candidates and starts with a year in college studying for an NVQ2 in Performing Engineering Operations, an NVQ3 in a chosen trade pathway, a Technical Certificate, as well as training in key skills such as Communication, IT & Numeracy. Apprentices will then go on to fulfil roles in a variety of manufacturing and product development functions.
In support of National Apprenticeship week, JLR will be attending several events to promote its programmes including The Real Apprentice showcases in Dudley, Walsall, Sandwell and Wolverhampton.
The JLR careers website opens for applications on 6th February 2012 and will close on 9th April 2012. Anyone interested in applying should visit: www.jaguarlandrovercareers.com
