Leonardo’s four-year Design Engineering Technician Apprenticeship provides a wealth of hands-on learning and development opportunities. Working with world-leading specialists, you will increase your technical skills and capability, and develop your academic and practical understanding of the engineering design lifecycle by deploying the methods of designing electrical and mechanical systems.
Years 1 and 2:
Through rotational placements you will gather real work evidence such as written logs describing day-to-day tasks completed and highlighting the key engineering competencies you have demonstrated. The SVQ Level 3 will require you to complete a folder of this evidence, demonstrating your development into a well-rounded technician/engineer through on-the-job training and are gaining the essential practical skills to succeed. During this time you will also be attending college on day release to gain the academic qualifications required by the Apprenticeship framework.
Years 3 and 4:
Having gained broad experience across Leonardo, you will undertake a final placement and further your academic study to HND Level. These activities will be focused on your area of specialism and the on-the-job training will enable you to gather the final evidence required for the SVQ.
