Jaguar Land Rover is investing more than £400m at its factory in Castle Bromwich in Birmingham to build its latest Jaguar XF.
Later this week, Jaguar Land Rover will announce that it's spending hundreds of millions of pounds upgrading the Castle Bromwich factory, so it can build the new car which will be made from aluminium.
The factory nearly closed five years ago under Ford, before they sold the company to Tata.
Ed Miliband said British politicians had failed to recognise "the most important economic idea of the 21st century" - that wealth does not always trickle down "from a few at the top".
Ed Miliband has warned that the Tory "long-term economic plan" is working for a "handful" of people at the top, while his rival vision would champion the needs of working families.
The Labour leader said:
Nothing more symbolises the current Government's failing plan than seeing the tax gap - between what should be paid and the revenue received - widening, while the number of apprenticeships available for young people is falling.
He said just one in 10 employers in England offers an apprenticeship and there are "six times fewer high quality apprenticeships than in Germany".
It is time to match the aspirations of our young people with the high quality apprenticeships they deserve. So today I can announce: under the next Labour government, if you get the grades at 18, you will be guaranteed an apprenticeship.
Labour would guarantee apprenticeships to every school leaver in the UK by 2020, providing they get the required grades, Ed Miliband said as he laid out his plans for the economy today.
In an exclusive interview, the man who saved Jaguar Land Rover - the Indian billionaire Ratan Tata, has described a secret meeting in an airport hotel to secure the deal.
He said how he wasn't allowed to set foot in any of the factories while the negotiations were taking place and how Jaguar Land Rover will be staying and expanding in the Midlands.
Despite pumping £5billion into the business he says he's done very little to help the company - he just stood back and supported the workforce in doing what they do best.
He's been in the Midlands to open an engineering college and he spoke to Mark Gough.
