Jason studied whilst working at Jaguar Land Rover (JLR), where he had worked for 21 years. After seeing his colleagues at JLR progress, Jason wanted to be able to do the same and had aspirations of becoming an area manager. JLR supported Jason throughout his degree and encouraged him to develop. Upon completion, Jason applied for a managerial role at JLR, which he secured, and he is now on the path to become an area manager.
“I have been able to apply the skills I learnt such as leadership, communication and motivation in the workplace and it has had an impact on my team. I take more of a democratic approach rather than an authoritative approach which I believe makes me a better leader, and my team respond well to that. The skills I learnt within the [personal development] module aided me when applying for my new role at Jaguar Land Rover.”
