1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
AMe Facilities Powertrain College work, FDENG in Engineering and PEO level 2 vocations Other apprentices, tutors No regular external contacts Only responsible for my own work and timing Projects include PEO62 - Projects which is a project team manager role, CAD project, Manufacturing Process project and materials project
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
Most of my subjects are brand new information for me to take in, and a few are developing new skills such as my maths and science skills.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
Most of the time i am thoroughly enjoying it, although i wish i was in plant and doing my job role more often. Also some days at college feel nearly pointless due to bad communication internally, but i acknowledge that this is unavoidable.
4. How valued do you feel by Jaguar Land Rover?
when i am in plant i feel like i am actually part of the team, but i feel like there could be more interaction between our JLR managers and us when we are college.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
As we were the first group of apprentices on the new Trailblazer scheme, things have been shaky throughout the entire apprenticeship so far. Promises to have it sorted by next year are promising, but still a bit of pain for us.
In terms of everything else, it is good.
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
All support from the college is great. Almost all the staff are very approachable and happy to help.
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
I do wish our employer had more interaction with us at college and i feel like the HR team could do more to support us aswell.
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
I manage to live fine, although leamington is an expensive place to live and as this apprenticeship almost needs you to have a car, it doesn't leave me much savings.
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
There are lots of opportunities in this work place, but as first years we aren't exposed to many of them and i hope this will improve next year.
9. Would you recommend Jaguar Land Rover to a friend?
It's a higher apprentice with global prospects and opportunities and enough money to realistically live.
10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Jaguar Land Rover?
Know about the company and all about what their long term goals are and what you can do to improve the company.
