Young women in Know - Advanced Apprentice

We’re committed to inspiring tomorrow’s engineers. A significant part of this commitment is striving to change the outdated perceptions of engineering and manufacturing, encouraging more women to consider careers in these fields. The Young Women in the Know (YWIK) scheme has been developed to help address this, increasing the female talent pool especially through, Advanced and Degree Apprenticeships routes across all our sites
The Young Women in the Know scheme is a week-long programme which includes tours of Jaguar Land Rover’s manufacturing, design and engineering sites, engagement and mentoring by female apprentices, graduates and engineers and a day on work experience at one of our plants.
If your application  is successful and leads to a place on the Young Women in the Know scheme , this could result in an invitation to one of  our Apprentice Assessment Events where if you perform well could ultimately receive an offer of employment to join our Apprentice Programme

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