JAGUAR LAND ROVER AUTOMOTIVE DRAGON’S DEN
On Thursday 11 May, Jaguar Land Rover’s advanced manufacturing plant in Halewood will host a design challenge for local school pupils.
A team of employees have developed the ‘Dragon’s Den’ programme which challenges Year 12 students to develop an accessory for the plant-built Discovery Sport or Range Rover Evoque models.
16 students from the plant’s Business Class partner, All Saints Catholic High School will be participating as part of their Business Studies BTEC Level 3 course. A further 14 places are available to Year 12 students studying Business Studies or related subjects at Merseyside schools and colleges who want to develop their product and design knowledge and employability skills.
The day will start in the plant’s Education Business Partnership Centre (L24 9PZ) at 9.30am and will conclude at 2.30pm. The students will be split into six groups, each mentored by a plant volunteer, and will learn about Halewood’s premium vehicles and customers before they develop their new accessory concepts. At the end of the day, each group will pitch their ideas to a team of dragons who will asked them challenging questions before they award an overall rating.
Schools should provide their own transport or can hire the plant’s education minibuses which each seat up to 14 students.
To register your interest in places, please email Kate Birkenhead – [email protected] confirming school/college name, number of students (in multiples of 5 only), course and if you will need to hire transport.
Please submit your request by Thursday 5 May, all places will be confirmed by Friday 6 May.
