Advanced Apprenticeship Scheme - Manufacturing

Location : EMC Wolverhampton

Working in one of the largest functions within our business you will have an integral role in delivering our current product range of vehicles to the highest quality standards to meet our customers’ demanding requirements. 

Operating in world class manufacturing facilities such as press shops, body shops, paint shops and vehicle assembly areas you will be responsible for maintaining automated and advanced technologies, in either mechatronic maintenance or toolmaking roles. You will provide support to maximise production efficiencies and maintain all associated plant equipment to ensure the smooth running of our state of the art production facilities.  

Join the Advanced Apprenticeship Scheme, and you’ll have opportunities to make your mark in routes such as:

Manufactoring support

In this area, you’ll work to improve our manufacturing techniques and processes, helping us to deliver the highest quality end products to our customers. You’ll gain knowledge of our vehicles and production techniques, reporting on assembly solutions, standardisation, quality and economic best practice.

Toolmaker, tool & die maintenance

Combining traditional manual skills with the latest technology, you’ll help maintain or develop some of our most innovative products. You’ll cover a range of skilled disciplines, all of which are essential to the development of new and existing models.


You’ll carry out preventative maintenance, diagnose and fix faults on complex machinery and equipment to keep our manufacturing operation running smoothly. We’ll also help you develop the ability to use problem-solving skills on robots, logistics, process system and electrical and mechanical components.

What to expect

You will undertake a modern apprenticeship under the auspices of the Trailblazer standards. This exciting programme will develop your practical skills and cultivate the knowledge required for your particular role in the business. This is all achieved whilst developing your behaviours, as we are not just interested in what you accomplish, but the manner in which you do it.

Together with invaluable commercial and practical experience, you’ll gain a number of academic and vocational qualifications throughout your time with us, which are fully paid for by us, including:

  • Level 2 Diploma in Advanced Manufacturing Engineering (Foundation Competence)
  • Level 3 Diploma in Advanced Manufacturing Engineering (route specific)
  • Level 3 Advanced Manufacturing Engineering (Development Knowledge)

Expect to achieve a BTEC Level 3 Diploma, NVQs relevant to your specific job and top class on-the-job training that will support and focus you on becoming highly competent to deliver in the role.

What you’ll need

You’ll need Maths (higher paper) and English Language GCSE C Grade or Grade 4-9 or above. In addition you will need three GCSE’s (or equivalent) including Science, Engineering or Technology at C Grade or above, or as an alternative, Engineering Vocational qualification level 3 of 90 credit value (540 GLH).

Whatever your role, you’ll discover our dedication to developing excellence runs throughout the business. Your innovation and creativity will be challenged every day, as you develop a rigorous and commercially focused approach to your work. And with ongoing support from industry-leading experts, you’ll quickly realise the schemes have been designed to be just as inspiring as the pioneering vehicles you’ll help produce.


As you’d expect from one of the world’s most revered organisations, an outstanding range of rewards and benefits await those who have the vision and drive to continue our global success – including a competitive starting salary. All this and more makes Jaguar Land Rover an excellent place to start your journey – it all starts here!
