“With an apprenticeship, I have found that you can really get the best of both education and work. I am having a fantastic experience at University and, at Leonardo, I absolutely love my current placement in the Mechanical Department. Being in the work environment makes my course work so much easier. I can see and experience real-life practical examples which support the work I am doing at University. I can ask the team questions and relate problems we are solving at work to the course work, which makes it so much easier to grasp. Every aspect of the apprenticeship supports my development as a student, teaches me about being an employee and builds me up as a person. I’m so much more confident and would love nothing more than to continue learning and working at Leonardo, long into the future.”
