A group of 20 Business Studies students, aged 15-16, will participate in a factory tour looking at how lean tools and techniques are used across the plant to eliminate waste and continuously improve manufacturing processes.

The students will then take part in a Kando activity, which is an assessment tool used in the Jaguar Land Rover recruitment process which focusses on lean manufacturing, quality, communication and teamwork. To finish the day, the young people will participate in an exhilarating off-road demonstration on Solihull’s Land Rover Experience course.
