Apprenticeship offering helps businesses foster growth and harness fresh talent

MILTON KEYNES, England, May 10, 2011 - Raytheon Professional Services LLC (RPS), a subsidiary of Raytheon
Company (NYSE: RTN), is the first provider in the U.K. to launch a recognised
Business and Administration Apprenticeship programme delivered in a virtual
classroom environment with a collaborative learning approach.

Students earn a Business Technology and Education Council (BTEC)
Apprenticeship Certification in Business & Administration upon completion.
The apprenticeship provides participants with an alternative to an academic
education in a working environment where they can jump-start their careers
with a fun, hands-on, quality programme. Employers benefit from a recognised
education programme that enables apprentices to quickly operate efficiently
and effectively in the workplace.

"The virtual classroom training delivery makes our apprenticeship
programme fully work-based, integrating learning into the day-to-day
activities of the apprentice's job," said Paul Swinscoe, RPS business
development director. "Instead of losing hours to off-site study, managers
and apprentices can actively participate in the training process whilst the
apprentices gain valuable skills to apply to their work situations," Swinscoe
