International Orientation for Apprentices of Coburg and Gera
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

It’s becoming increasingly difficult to find appropriately qualified young people to fill the many positions around the world for KAESER Service Technicians. This is the background behind establishment of the KAESER Apprentice Placement programme. It is one element within a larger phased plan (International Orientation of Training – Your Path to Becoming a KAESER Service Technician) encompassing specific development steps, from the first day of training through to the final objective: working as a service technician in one of KAESER’s international branches. The phased plan presents all the steps along the way in a highly transparent manner for everyone involved in the process. One of the most exciting development steps is the opportunity for apprentices to be placed at an international KAESER branch (Apprentice Placement). This opportunity is aimed at apprentices in their second and third years of a three and a half-year trade-based training programme (industrial mechanics, machining mechanics as well as electronics and mechatronics specialists). The most important aspect is to have a keen interest in working as a Service Technician. The objectives of the apprenticeship are to raise interest in the profession of Service Technician, promote entrepreneurship and deepen intercultural and linguistic skills – while also making the prospect of living away from one’s native country more tangible and appealing. Apprentices who take part in the programme will have the opportunity to live and work in a different country during their occupational training; an opportunity that will allow them to broaden their geographical horizons at an early stage in their career. It is expected that the announcement of the programme will result in more applications for the additional internal training it takes to become a Service Technician from apprentices who have successfully completed their occupational training. The Apprentice Placement programme will focus on KAESER branches within Europe. The company feels it has the best chance of attracting young people to establish their careers in other European countries following completion of their Service Technician training, as they will naturally find it easier to integrate into the local culture. The apprenticeship always takes place during the summer holidays to ensure that apprentices do not miss out on any key material in their occupational training programme.
