Greatly. The company name and role carries weight when telling someone your job. it is a great feeling knowing you are doing something sought after by many people.

vast amounts of work have been done to ensure the apprenticeship scheme in finmeccanica runs as smoothly as possible. You have your future placements mapped out up to 1 year in advance.

As much as needed. Constantly surrounded by high level engineers who are willing to help with any task the apprentice may be struggling with.

you are introduced to the key people in your apprenticeship very early on. This allows a great relationship to be built between the apprentice and their peers.

7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?


The starting salary for the apprentices is great however it doesn't increase vastly. this leads me to thing that although it starts higher than many apprenticeships, it may be surpassed in the future.

Managers are constantly promoting extra-circular activities that support the company. This also allows you to represent yourself as part of the company
