Jaguar announces apprenticeship scheme
Jaguar Land Rover has announced that it will be taking on more than 40 new engineering apprentices.

The advanced apprenticeship scheme will run for as long as four years with the first 18 months of training taking place at college.

At the end of the programme, those taking part will earn an NVQ2 in Performing Engineering Operations, an NVQ3 in their chosen trade pathway and a Technical Certificate.

They will also develop a wide range of key skills and will begin work at one of Jaguar's factories upon the completion of their college-based training.

Des Thurlby, HR director at the car manufacturer, said: "We're committed to the training and development of a world-class workforce and the Advanced Apprenticeship programme is another important step in ensuring a future generation of engineering talent to drive the business forward."

Another firm currently using an apprentice scheme to create jobs is hotel and catering company Whitbread.
