Higher Technological Institutes (ITS Academy)

The ITS Academies present in Italy are post-diploma highly specialised technological training schools, parallel to academic courses, lasting two years and which allow you to obtain the title of higher technician. By integrating the needs of education and training with those of the world of work, the ITS Academies train technical profiles equipped not only with the skills defined by schools, but also with the skills required by companies. To this end, 50% of teaching hours are provided by schools and universities and 50% by companies. 

In the ITS Academy in which Leonardo is a founding member, teaching staff from the Group alternate in classes during the two-year training period, helping to transfer the professional skills necessary to respond to the needs of the labour market and act as a driving force for the growth of the industrial fabric and of the territory.
