British Prime Minister Visists JLR Global Headquarters

Jaguar Land Rover today welcomed a very special guest at its global headquarters, the Prime Minster Rt. Hon. David Cameron, who arrived in Gaydon, Warwickshire, where he met with apprentices and graduates who have recently joined the company.

During the visit, PM Cameron announced a £25 million fund that will support the creation of additional apprenticeship positions that will help businesses offer enhanced opportunities to inspire the next generation of talented engineers.

“Jaguar Land Rover is a brilliant example of a business that is investing in skills for the future. It is time to re-industrialise the UK so that means more hi-tech jobs - that’s what’s happening here at Jaguar Land Rover,”
said Prime Minster David Cameron.

“It’s great to see Government continuing to support apprenticeships with this initiative. We are dedicated to the training and development of our employees and our award-winning apprentice scheme has been developing a generation of engineers for many years.  We work very closely with schools and academic institutions across the UK to help inspire and create the next generation of engineers and technologists. It is these apprentices – and graduates – who will ultimately help drive and shape the future of our business,” added Dr Ralf Speth, Jaguar Land Rover Chief Executive Officer.

More than 100 apprentices have joined Jaguar Land Rover’s this year, starting their career in the fields of manufacturing, engineering and technology under the initial 36 to 42 month training programme. This number is in addition to this year’s graduate intake of more than 330, who have recently started their careers at the UK’s largest manufacturer of premium luxury vehicles.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s.
