Apprentices

There are two routes within the Apprenticeship Scheme.

 

Become an Apprentice at Jaguar Land Rover and you’ll learn from the best. You’ll work on projects that have a real impact on our global success. You’ll also be rewarded as you develop your skills and start on the road to building an impressive career.

Whether you join us as an Advanced or Degree Apprentice depends on your education level and your interests.

The Advanced Scheme runs for four years and it’s designed for those who are taking their GCSEs this academic year or have already completed them. The Degree Schemes run for six years, and are appropriate for those who are in their final year of A Levels or have completed the appropriate A Levels or vocational qualifications required.

Further details on the amount of credits and awards required can be found below in each Scheme’s What you’ll need section.

Please only make one application for our Apprentice vacancies. Read all scheme information carefully and apply to the one position that aligns most with your qualifications, skills, experience and interests. We will not process any duplicate applications.
