Big Bang North West: Jaguar Land Rover – Mini-bots & the Range Rover Evoque’s 6th birthday!
Jaguar Land Rover’s ‘Inspiring Tomorrow’s Engineers’ programme brings engineering and manufacturing careers to life in partnership with schools and colleges.
“Our Education Business Partnership Centre at Halewood Operations offers school tours, classroom activities and work placements for thousands of students each year.
“Visit our stand at The Big Bang North West to test your skills controlling and manipulating miniature robots, which are similar to those we use on the production line. Our apprentices will be running hands on activities which demonstrate some of the skills they learn during their training and you’ll also be able to see a brand new Land Rover Evoque Convertible they’ve helped produce at the plant.”

A team of their apprentices and ex-apprentices will be at their stand all day to answer any questions and give an insight into how the apprenticeships are structured.
