I feel that i receive a lot of support from the teachers if you do not understand something and the staff are keen to help you out with anything. Peers are sometimes better to go to with smaller problems sometimes.

I have only been to plan twice however the managers and other employees are keen to help you out with any queries you have around plant. If you need anything then all you have to do is ask.

Theres not really any after work clubs or anything that you can join, there is however a gym at plant which we can join however i think you have to pay extra. In college we all have social events that we create ourselves though
9a. Would you recommend Jaguar Land Rover to a friend? *
9b. Why? *
The Pay is really really good and you get to learn loads of new things and get a really good recognised qualification at the end of it which you can take away for life. Plus you get a job at the end..
10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Jaguar Land Rover? *
I would advise, be yourself in the interview and be on your best behaviour as these are the things they are looking for. Grades aren't everything, if you get on with everyone and make an effort to look at things from a different perspective then you will have a higher chance of getting in
