AIM HIGHER VISIT TO JAGUAR/LAND-ROVER PLANT

Nine Woodchurch High School girls visited the motor vehicle construction factory of Jaguar/Land-Rover in April. During the visit the girls discovered about the different apprenticeships and opportunities for girls in the Engineering employment sector and had a tour of the factory.

The event was designed to promote the uptake of girls into engineering roles throughout the employment sector and for girls to overcome the prejudice that engineering is “just for boys”.

As a result of the day, one of the pupils is currently organising a week of work experience at the plant during her summer holidays.
