Career Academy students from The Sixth Form College, Solihull got a first-hand view of the motor industry recently, with a visit to Jaguar Assembly plant in Castle Bromwich.
Students from the Science, Business and IT Career Academies went on the trip, as part of the Career Academies UK programme, a national initiative that raises the employability prospects of young people.
The students had a tour of the plant, focusing on the assembly of the Jaguar XJ and XF models. They also received a presentation on the technological and environmental aspects of the cars, followed by an outline of career pathways with Jaguar.
Trevor Irving, Director of Teaching and Learning at the College, said: “We are grateful to Jaguar for their hospitality and for providing so much useful information.”
