I felt part of the company from day one and we are constantly reminded that we are the future of the company, and that work hard to give us the best training in order to live up to those expectations.

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?


the trail blazer scheme is still in its infancy, my year is only the second year to go through this, so they are still figuring some of the logistics out with the course, but already the JLR team have worked wonders to get the standards high

9b. Why? *

very good company to work for and feel that they offer one of the best apprenticeships in the UK

10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Jaguar Land Rover? *

it's best to have an interest in cars and automotive engineering as that is what the apprenticeship revolves around, also the course is very study heavy in the first year so allow time to complete assignments both in and out of your working day.
