£14,000 per year Edinburgh Full-time (37 Hours) Leonardo 15/11/2019 SCQF level 5

Job overview

Leonardo’s three-year Manufacturing Apprenticeship provides a wealth of learning and development opportunities including an NC in Engineering systems, SVQ level 2 (PEO) and SVQ level 3 (Engineering technical support). Working with world-leading specialists, you will increase your technical skills and capability, and develop your academic and practical understanding of the diverse world that is manufacturing & supply chain.

You will undertake a series of three-month rotational placements – covering Mechanical Assembly, Electromechanical Assembly, Electro Optic Assembly, Environmental Facility, Material Supply and Logistics, Master Production Scheduling, Industrial Engineering and Machine Shop – that will springboard you into the world of manufacturing and teach you how to build and test industry-leading radar and laser systems. You’ll experience how we manage the flow of material through our supply chain and how we ensure the process is as efficient as possible.

You will be working within cutting-edge facilities and there may also be opportunities for travel between the Company’s UK sites and to meet with colleagues, customers and suppliers.

What will I learn?

Years 1 and 2:
During your first five months you will be attending college full-time to complete an SVQ Level 2. Once back on-site, you will conduct rotational placements where 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 compile a folder of evidence, demonstrating your development into a well-rounded technician through on-the-job training and gaining the essential practical skills to succeed. During this time you will also attend college on day release to gain the academic qualifications required by the Apprenticeship framework.

Year 3:
Having gained broad experience across Leonardo, you will undertake a final placement, with on-the-job training being more focused on a particular discipline.

What qualification or qualities are required?

• 4 Standard Grades (1-3) / National 5 (A-C) or National 4 (or equivalent)
• Mandatory: Mathematics & English
• Plus another two subjects, preferably technological subjects e.g. Graphic Communication, Product Design, Craft & Design, Tech Studies, Computing, Woodwork, Metalwork etc.
