The Istituti Tecnici Superiori (ITS) are technical training schools which run two-year post-diploma courses for ‘super technicians’ in which the scholastic skills are matched by capacities expected by companies. 50% of ITS teaching is done by schools and universities, the other 50% by companies themselves.
ITS present remarkable opportunities for both young people and companies. Higher Technical Institutes offer a unique opportunity for both young people and businesses by providing a channel for post-diploma training that runs parallel to academic studies and integrates education, field training and work.
The Leonardo ITS institutes has teachers from within our Company who transfer not only their knowledge and skills to students during the two-year course, but also their passion for the profession. They also help promote local industrial awareness and stimulate growth and employment.

Additionally, the Company joins other partners in working groups, including the Aerospace and Defence Growth Partnership in the United Kingdom, with the aim of fostering joint efforts within the industry.
Leonardo also contributes to the development of civic awareness and the exercise of active citizenship by hosting students in combined study-work experiences that reduce the gap between the demand for business skills and the professional expectations of young people.
