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


Prototype Vehicle Planner.

My role involves the planning of Prototype Vehicle builds. Ensuring the correct validated parts are on the BOM, and undertaking build planning activities.

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


During the apprenticeship I will complete a BEng in Applied Engineering. I have learnt many new skills and knowledge so far, both at work during workshop placements, and at college were I have so far completed a foundation degree.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?


I have really enjoyed my time at college, and on workshop placements around the company.

However my actual job role lacks the technical engineering aspects which I hoped to undertake in my position at the company.

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


I feel valued by Jaguar Land Rover, and have received appreciation from work I have undertaken for both my manager, and other colleagues around the business.

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?


The organisation at college during my first two years has been appealing, with a lack of competent teachers being available for lessons on a regular basis.

Organisation and structure at work however, has been brilliant, with the arrangement of many workshop placements around the company which have really benefited me.

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


Support from college has been very limited, with what I have felt to be a big lack of teaching quality and support from tutors.

I have found support from my Industrial Training Manager however to be excellent, and very supportive during the apprenticeship.

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


I have received strong support from my employer throughout the apprenticeship scheme.

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


My apprentice salary is meeting my total monthly costs well, and providing a sustainable financial standing.

8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?


Yes there are many events and projects to get involved with outside of work, such as CSR events, and Apprentice Forum Projects.

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


9b. Why?

I have found my experience with the company to be a positive one, and have enjoyed my time here.

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

Be prepared for the assessment day as it is quite intense with lots going on.

Be prepared for the job role selection processes during the first induction week, and ensure you find out all the necessary information behind each role.
