10 students from The St Leonards Academy were pleased to visit General Dynamics
on Tuesday 22nd November.General Dynamics is an international
engineering business located a few miles from the Academy that employs 300
people locally. Students were given
a talk by two current apprentices about their roles and the careers that are
available at General Dynamics. They were then treated to a tour of the
facilities and shown first-hand the work of the company - including the making
of electrical components for fighter jets and communication systems for tanks.
The students left with a greater knowledge of electrical engineering and apprenticeships.
