1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
I am a degree apprentice, and I work within the E-Driveline team in the powertrain department at Whitley. I do several tasks, such as participating in meetings, resolve engineering issues, support our vehicle build and make sure parts get to where they need to on time.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
I've learnt several new skills, such as communication, problem solving, JLR processes, internal training (DFMEA etc). I believe my social skills have improved in the time I've been working at JLR.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I enjoy many aspects of my apprenticeship, I think I have a good relationship with my colleagues and have a good work/time ratio. I still enjoy coming to work as much as when I started, so I think it is safe to say I enjoy my work!
4. How valued do you feel by Jaguar Land Rover?
I feel valued as people depend on me to deliver my work on time to allow the team to proceed with their work. I feel appreciated by my family and friends.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
I think there is a proper structure to the programme, although I am unsure as to what is happening later in the programme regarding my role in the 6th year when I hopefully will have completed my degree.
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
In my experience, Warwickshire college have not been to the standard I expected to find on this apprenticeship. Some aspects and tutors are exceptional, but others leave you disappointed.
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
I feel like JLR support me to the level I expected and exceeded that. They obviously have a employee first mantra which works for the business and the employee.
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
My salary covers my costs sufficiently for me to be able to lead a comfortable life at a relatively young age.
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
