Jaguar TCS Racing drivers inspire Liverpool students 

Jaguar TCS Racing drivers Mitch Evans and Nick Cassidy recently visited Kings Leadership Academy Liverpool and The Academy of St Nicholas in Liverpool, two schools that are part of the JLR Schools Partnership Programme, in close proximity to JLR’s manufacturing site in Halewood. 

The JLR Schools Partnership programme, which launched in October last year, is focused on improving opportunities for groups underrepresented in the industry including young females, pupils from challenging socio-economic backgrounds and those with English as a second language, creating a pipeline of talent to build JLR’s next generation of modern luxury vehicles.   

Jaguar TCS Racing are actively supporting the JLR Schools Partnership programme with term-time seminars and assemblies. In addition to an exclusive Q&A with the racing drivers, students were introduced to Formula E to the students, and received an insight into the varied roles available within motorsport and JLR. 

As part of Jaguar TCS Racing’s mission, ‘Race to Inspire’, the team is committed to inspiring the future generation by creating meaningful impact in communities both across the UK and in the cities in which they race.  

Mitch Evans, Jaguar TCS Racing Driver #9, said: “The students asked some great questions, so I hope we have left them feeling inspired and motivated to explore a potential career in motorsport or JLR.” 

Mr Gary Lloyd, headteacher of The Academy of St Nicholas, said: “Our students, and students from our partner school, The Academy of St Francis of Assisi, enjoyed having the opportunity to speak with racing driver, Nick Cassidy, whilst learning more about the team and the exciting careers within the company and the sport. 

“Our young people are feeling inspired and informed by the JLR Schools Partnership programme and we look forward to a long lasting partnership with the team.”
