1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:

7/10

My role within JLR is a body engineer. In the apprenticeship this role will develop me into becoming a world class CAD and CAE engineer by working as part of a team to develop the vehicles produced by the company. This first year I am at college learning the foundations for the apprenticeship.

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?

7/10

Within this first year at college I have learnt many new skills in the workshops. These include welding, turning and milling.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?

7/10

This year at college can be a bit tedious. However, I am looking forward to moving into plant within the next few months to begin the actual work that we will be doing in our career.

4. How valued do you feel by Jaguar Land Rover?

7/10

During our few weeks we have had at plant during this first year I have felt very valued by Jaguar Land Rover as they have involved me in a number of tasks and made me aware of external recognition in terms of awards which I can work towards.

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?

6/10

The apprenticeship itself seems to be well organised in its structure. However, the college during our first sometimes lacks this and is almost indecisive in what we need to be doing at times.

6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?

7/10

We receive a fair amount of support mainly from behavioural reviews with our work based learning managers which help us with our progress.

6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?

7/10

We receive a fair amount of support mainly from behavioural reviews with our work based learning managers which help us with our progress.

7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?

5/10

The salary for the job is fairly good but living in the local area around the college and place of work is very expensive meaning I can not save as much as I would hope to.

8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?

5/10

Whilst we are still at college we have limited access to the company meaning that at the moment I am unaware of any real opportunities outside of work.

9a. Would you recommend Jaguar Land Rover to a friend? *

Yes

9b. Why? *

Overall the company is very good in terms of its support to its employees and the apprenticeship provides good training and career prospects.
