Jaguar Land Rover, Higher Apprentice Thomas Lines
THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS
Thomas Lines joined Jaguar Land Rover as a Higher Apprentice having spent three years in the army, where he achieved A Levels in Maths, Physics and Electronics.
On leaving the army, Thomas decided to pursue his passion for engineering with a degree at Newcastle University, but he was forced to leave his studies and take on a full-time job.
Thomas explains: “It was devastating to leave university but it turned out to be a blessing in disguise as it led me to Jaguar Land Rover and an apprenticeship which combines academic study and real world experience. I earn a competitive salary, learn new things every day and work for an amazing company; it has been a fantastic opportunity and I’ll still end up with a full Engineering degree from one of the country’s top universities.”
Since joining Jaguar Land Rover, Thomas has spent a year studying towards his foundation degree and a series of NVQs designed to impart the skills and knowledge he needs. He’s also been an ambassador for the Jaguar Land Rover Apprenticeship scheme at a number of high profile external events.
Speaking of his time with the company, Thomas says: “My first year at Jaguar Land Rover has been incredibly rewarding. Knowing that over the coming years I will develop the skills I need to work for a premium car manufacturer, and hold my own amongst some of the best engineers in the automotive industry is more than I could have hoped for a year ago.”
