Level 6 Digital & Technology Solutions Degree Apprenticeship:
Our Digital & Technology Solutions Degree Apprenticeships are aimed at people who have a passion for learning and innovation. Ambitious, innovative and determined people who respect our heritage and can think beyond the challenges of today to build the cars of tomorrow.

Increasingly automated. Ever more sophisticated. This is the future our vision holds for our vehicles. As a Digital & Technology Solutions Degree Apprentice, you will implement technology solutions, aligned to your pathway, to develop new products and services and increase productivity using digital technologies. Jaguar Land Rover is a world leader in engineering – we make incredible luxury vehicles. Our aspirations are no different for Digital & Technology. Our people, our teams and our culture are at the heart of everything we do. We are natives of the agile and “DevOps” world and are here to solve complex technical challenges.

Software Engineering pathway:
Software is a key component of our future cars as the technology in vehicles continues to increase to meet customers’ evolving needs. Before the customer enters the car, technology identifies the key fob and their phone to recognise them and allow access; during their journey, software aids their driving with stability and assistance systems and provides a welcoming and refined user experience through in-vehicle infotainment. In short, software gives us our edge. It makes our thinking come alive in the real world. This pathway will show you how to design, build and test ground-breaking software that really delivers. You’ll also learn how to integrate engineering principles that deliver superior analysis, development and built-in security.

Along the way, you could work in any of the following Product Engineering functional areas: Engineering Body Chassis (EBC), Digital Products Platform (DPP), Engineering Powertrain (EP), Engineering Operations (EO) or Engineering Research (ER). You could also be based within our Digital team. You will be asked to indicate your preference during the application process.

What’s Required:
GCSE Maths and English Language at level 5 or higher plus three additional GCSEs at level 5 (C) or higher. In addition, you’ll need A-level Maths at grade C or higher and an additional A-level in Physics, Chemistry, Design & Technology, ICT, Computer Science, Economics or Engineering at grade C or higher.
