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.
Cyber Security pathway
As an apprentice within the Cyber Security pathway, you will work in our Digital department. This function focuses on building new connected data and developer platforms to provide the technology and services for our connected vehicles and customers. Whether it’s a platform to remotely update cars via Software Over the Air (SOTA) or systems to make the design and engineering of our vehicles more efficient, we work with all parts of the business on interesting and complex challenges.
Working with and learning from our experts in one of the most advanced automotive environments in the world, you’ll gain skills and knowledge in areas such as security operations centre monitoring, project risk and threat analysis plus the creation of security reference models. You’ll also help to nurture a cyber-aware culture across the business.
Along the way, you will develop expertise in cyber operations, governance and risk management, security architecture and consultancy, security delivery and identity and access management. In your third and fourth years, you can choose to specialise in modules including Information Assurance, Network Security and Cyber Forensics.
Your Education Provider
As part of your apprenticeship, you will study for a BSc in Digital and Technology Solutions with the University of Warwick (WMG).
Over the first three years of your apprenticeship, you will study a range of modules designed to help you develop the knowledge, skills and behaviours needed to thrive as a technology professional. You’ll contribute to the business in your assigned role, as well as undertake additional study in your own time, to achieve your academic award. A network of apprentice tutors and line managers will regularly review your progress and offer advice to support you in performing at your best.
For the first two years, you will study a range of core subjects, with pathway specialisms in years three and four. Modules are taught in blocks throughout the academic year by Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG), part of the University of Warwick. These will be a mix of lectures, practical laboratory assignments, seminars and tutorials delivered in person and online, and you will also enjoy access to a virtual learning environment for further support.
In your final year, you will undertake a work-based project that also forms part of your End Point Assessment (EPA). On successful completion of your EPA, you will achieve your Level 6 Apprenticeship – and will be ready for an amazing career with Jaguar Land Rover.
