An Afternoon for the new Apprentices and their Parents

Maria Weber, Head of Vocational Training and Further Education at Kathrein-Werke KG, and her team of instructors and trainers welcomed the new apprentices and their parents at a special afternoon meeting.

On 1 September 2016, 22 young people will start their vocational training at Kathrein: four industrial clerks, two technical product designers, six electronics technicians for devices and systems, four industrial mechanics, an industrial mechanic doing the DBFH programme (combining vocational college and apprenticeship), and five students doing the combined degree programme (university of applied sciences and apprenticeship).

In a relaxed atmosphere, the instructors and trainers introduced themselves to the apprentices and their parents and answered all questions concerning the vocational training. To help the new apprentices get acquainted with the working world, Lisa Gruber and Florian Berger, two 1st year apprentices, will welcome them at Kathrein and assist the new apprentice industrial clerks during their first weeks of training. This mentor programme has proved to be successful over the last few years.

Some icebreaker games with Maria Weber helped the apprentices to get to know each other so that they won’t be complete strangers when their apprenticeship starts. Another point on the agenda was the schedule for the first week. Then the parents had the opportunity to get a tour of the company.

Note: there is still a vacancy for an industrial mechanic (DBFH) apprenticeship for 2016.
