    NAA Member News: JLR Launches New Schools Partnership Programme To Drive Forward The Careers of 40,000 Students From Diverse Local Communities

    Last month JLR launched an all-new Schools Partnership Programme to help 40,000 students from diverse backgrounds build electrifying future careers in areas such as electrical and software engineering, digital and data roles and autonomous technologies.

    The programme is focused on improving opportunities for groups underrepresented in the industry including young females, pupils from challenging socio-economic backgrounds and those with English as a second language, creating a pipeline of talent to build JLR’s next generation of modern luxury vehicles.

    In collaboration with The Careers and Enterprise Company, JLR identified 40 secondary schools that reflected the company’s diversity and inclusion aspirations. The schools are located close to JLR sites in Coventry & Warwickshire, Birmingham, the Black Country, Solihull and Liverpool as well as local University Technical Colleges.
