I shadow the current technicians in different roles/departments at London Heathrow airport.
I have learnt many skills at the airport. Everything I have learnt has been filtered down from current technicians, especially hands on skills
The job itself is amazing. You work in a dynamic workplace, i cant wait to have a career there and become a technician soon.
There can be some improvements. Lack of communication is always a topic, not much transparency when we contact the apprentice manager.
We get a lot of support from our employer. However again, a lack of communication so some topics go silenced
The hands on work a lot. However the college stuff not so much
At the college, not much. Majority of people that are selected for the scheme have some sort of hands on experience. This is what the college teaches you
Its an amazing place to work. You meet some amazing people
Work experience is key. A real key show of engineering and mechanical know how, lego, mechano when you were young
