'Young Women in the Know: Apprenticeships' October course now open for applications.
Jaguar Land Rover and Birmingham Metropolitan College, which manages the company’s Education Business Partnership Centres (EBPC), are running a ‘Young Women in the Know: Apprenticeships’ course next month. Places are available to employees’ children and families as well as students from local schools and colleges.
The course has been developed to change outdated perceptions of engineering to encourage more young women to consider engineering and manufacturing careers to increase the talent pool, especially through Jaguar Land Rover’s apprenticeship routes.
During the ‘Young Women in the Know’, students will visit Jaguar Land Rover’s manufacturing, design and engineering sites across the Midlands, meet female apprentices, graduates and managers and spend a day on work experience during the programme. They will also learn about Jaguar Land Rover’s apprentice schemes and participate in workshops on job applications and interview techniques to improve their employability skills.
