Charity benefits from growth of Jaguar Land Rover Halewood

PFLCLocal charity Partnership for Learning is amongst the first organisations to benefit from the recent success announced by Jaguar Land Rover (JLR), which is due to the increasing demand for the car manufacturer’s awarding winning Range Rover Evoque.

Over a three month period from March to June 2012, Partnership for Learning Charity expected to welcome approximately 5000 people through its doors in Speke as part of JLR’s recruitment drive to increase their Halewood workforce by 1,000 to cater for the global demand for the Land Rover Freelander 2 and the recently launched Range Rover Evoque.

The charity offers the ideal venue for JLR to conduct this project, offering 30 different purpose built training rooms, which include a 150-seat theatre and a workshop big enough to house the body shell of an Evoque, which potential employees will be trained on.

Maureen Leatherbarrow, Chair of Partnership for Learning, said: “We are so pleased to welcome Jaguar Land Rover and their new recruits to Partnership for Learning Charity Training Conference Centre.

“We are the only facility of this kind who can accommodate such a project and we are proud to be part of JLR’s success on Merseyside.

“The income generated from this will help our charity to deliver training and employment skills to people in South Liverpool and Knowsley which will hopefully encourage further investors to the area in future.”
