The Girls in the Know course has been developed to showcase modern manufacturing to address outdated misconceptions, encourages female students to consider engineering careers, and give them the opportunity to meet female JLR engineer role models and gain an insight into their careers.
The programme will engage with girls in primary school and again when they are in secondary school before they select their GCSE options to encourage them to pursue STEM subjects. There are two elements to the programme.
