About Jaguar Land Rover:
Jaguar Land Rover is the largest manufacturer of premium vehicles in the UK. Jaguar Land Rover is at the centre of the UK automotive industry’s drive to deliver technical innovation in all areas of vehicle development and is the largest investor in automotive research and development and engineering in the UK.
As the UK's largest automotive employer, Jaguar Land Rover has a world-class team of more than 24,000 people globally. In addition it supports 170,000 people through the supply chain, dealer network and wider economy.
Jaguar Land Rover has ambitious growth plans which can only be supported by innovation in new products, engines and environmental technologies. The company is the UK’s leading investor in automotive research and development and is successfully delivering breakthroughs in engineering, performance and sustainability. However, it’s critical that it attracts talented young people to become the next generation of engineers and technologists to sustain the business over the long term.
The company’s ‘Inspiring Tomorrow’s Engineers’ programme is designed to do just that in collaboration with schools and colleges by promoting learning and engagement on STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) subjects to help create the next generation of engineers and technologists.
Jaguar Land Rover has developed a comprehensive programme to help encourage young people to consider careers in engineering and technology within the automotive industry.
Jaguar Land Rover’s 'Inspiring Tomorrow's Engineers' programme works closely with schools across the country to promote learning and engagement with STEM subjects and to help create the next generation of engineers and technologists. The company has five Education Business Partnership Centres at each of its UK sites and a sixth centre is being developed at the new Engine Manufacturing Centre in Wolverhampton. Jaguar Land Rover also runs national schools challenges which develop STEM skills and promote engineering careers by providing pupils with hands-on projects that enable them to explore different aspects of the automotive industry in a stimulating and exciting way.
More than 200,000 students participated in the programme in 2012 and Jaguar Land Rover aim to increase this to 250,000 in 2013, including young people participating in the new Jaguar Land Rover Industrial Cadets programme.
Jaguar Land Rover is the only car maker in the UK to achieve the highly regarded Community Mark and, earlier this year, achieved the ‘Platinum standard’ in the Business in the Community Corporate Responsibility Index. These achievements recognise the company’s investment in community programmes, employee volunteering, national educational initiatives and community partnerships.
Jaguar Land Rover invested £1.25 million in community relations activities across the UK. The company focuses on education, young people, environment and employee volunteering, with high level engagement in communities surrounding its design and manufacturing sites in the Midlands and Merseyside.
