Jaguar Land Rover invites schools to 'See Inside Manufacturing'
Throughout October, Jaguar Land Rover opened its doors to a host
of budding engineers as part of the government's first 'See Inside
Manufacturing' initiative. More than 120 year 10 and 11 students
took part in a programme of activities at Jaguar Land Rover's Educational
Business Partnership Centres, located at each of the company's engineering
and advanced manufacturing plants. Activities included CAD CAM and
safety test challenges, a tour of the sites, and essential guidance
on interviews and CV writing as the students prepare to make critical
decisions about their futures.
'See Inside Manufacturing', supported by business secretary Vince
Cable, is a collaborative initiative between the UK's leading advanced
manufacturers and government to promote manufacturing excellence,
challenge perceptions of the industry and dispel the myth that Britain
no longer 'makes anything'.
