Leonardo Apprenticeship for Danny
South Wiltshire UTC pioneer student, Danny, has recently secured a manufacturing apprenticeship with global high-tech company, Leonardo, starting this September.
The current Year 13 student will be rotating around the different departments at Leonardo, based in Southampton, after initially going to their training college for the first 20 weeks of the apprenticeship. In the final year, Danny will have the opportunity to specialise in the area best suited to him.
Danny said: “I have always wanted to go into engineering, but I was never sure what area to specialise in. I came across this apprenticeship and it looked perfect.”
“I am currently studying Engineering Level 3 Extended Diploma and an A-level in mathematics. I joined South Wiltshire UTC because of its specialisms and since being here, I have enjoyed it and it’s certainly helped me with job offers! I also like the fact there are smaller class sizes as you get more support.”
