On Tuesday 11th December nine Arthur Terry Sixth Formers were fortunate enough to attend a Jaguar Land Rover Work Experience Day at their Wolverhampton Engine Manufacturing Plant. After a tour of the huge factory – spanning more than 24 football fields – the students enjoyed careers workshops, break out small group Q&A’s with various JLR employees and completed the day with an engineering team challenge to build a replica engine in time constraints with the two Arthur Terry groups coming first and second!
The students had an incredible day and picked up on the company’s, ‘Kaizen’, ‘good change’ mantra regarding seeking continual improvement. The event will assist all nine participants – Nathan Blundell, Holly Dawson, Henry Geddes, Charlotte Hirons, Joel McHale, Solomon Nicodemou, Bonnie Phillips, Will Tuppen & Rory Watkins – with their various apprenticeship applications and in particular was fabulous preparation for Henry Geddes who has a JLR Software Degree Apprenticeship interview tomorrow!
Huge thanks to Aston University’s, Sarah Fullwood for brokering today’s fantastic event!
