Jaguar Land Rover announces a record number of degree apprenticeships are on offer this year, opening up opportunities to gain a degree in a world class automotive business and develop the next generation of modern luxury vehicles, without accruing large debts.

  • Move opens automotive career path for those concerned about university costs
  • Nearly 300 apprenticeships available in total – half of those will be degree apprenticeships, a 70% uplift from last year
  • Apprentices gain vital work experience and above average salary while they study towards a degree
  • All apprenticeships available in areas such as electrification, self-driving, artificial intelligence, data analytics, software engineering and machine learning

As the UK-based modern luxury car manufacturer opens 300 places on its 2023 apprenticeship scheme, it is announcing 150 of those will be degree apprenticeships – a 70% increase on last year – to deepen its talent pool with digital, autonomous and electrified skills.

Degree apprenticeships offer those who might not consider university due to the cost, the opportunity to get started in the industry and get paid by their employer while they also study.

The JLR starting salary of c.£24,500 is well above market rate meaning young people can afford to move closer to JLR for a degree apprenticeship.

JLR Head of Early Years Careers Programme, Anne Marie Campion said: “Our apprenticeship programmes including our Degree Apprenticeships are highly sought after. Our apprentices will enjoy a fantastic experience. They will learn with the UK’s top training providers and support our Reimagine strategy, working on our future vehicles that are fundamental to our global success.”

Last year JLR launched its Future Skills Programme, a global upskilling that will see 29,000 people trained in electrification and digital skills in the next three years.

These skills are essential to developing, building and delivering JLR’s next generation of cars that epitomise modern luxury experience for our clients.
