1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
I am a technical apprentice who will soon be at the business four days a week. Up until now I have been at college four days a week. when I come to work I will be helping with the everyday tasks of other engineers.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
I am learning all about electrical engineering that will allow me to gain an NVQ and even a HND in the subject. I have also learned how to deal with people better.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I thoroughly enjoy my apprenticeship programme and the people who I spend my day with (the other apprentices). it is well structured and is soon to start taking shape.
4. How valued do you feel by Leonardo?
at the moment I do not feel as valued as I would like to although I believe it will change soon, as we enter the business properly.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
our apprenticeship is well structured although it has been a challenge to coordinate with work when we only come in on Fridays.
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
We receive a lot of support from our training provider (college) as we are there four days a week. this allows us to have a large amount of interaction with them.
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
we receive a lot of support from our employer and other employees at the business, mainly other older apprentices.
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
The salary is good although travel costs are high. the location of work makes it hard for me to get here on a daily basis until I can drive. my living costs are covered by my salary also.
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
there are a few opportunities outside of work although they are closed off to those who cannot drive as they find it very hard to get to these events.
9a. Would you recommend Leonardo to a friend? *
9b. Why? *
because it is a good place to work with a friendly atmosphere and very good employment options. although it is awkward to get to for me.
10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Leonardo? *
one tip is to only apply after you can drive, as if you do not live close it means you will have to travel far for college and work.
