Twenty-nine young men and women have successfully completed their training at Brose in the Coburg, Würzburg and Berlin districts of the German Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Twenty-three received their training at the Coburg location, five in Würzburg and one in Berlin. Twenty will be kept on by their training locations, working as machine and system operators, industrial clerks, mechatronic technicians, electronics technicians and technical product designers. Three of the former apprentices are going to begin studying and four are moving on to a college of further education. Two young people have decided to change their profession.
In the district of Coburg, fifteen of Brose's apprentices achieved above-average results and are again among the top of the class this year. Outstanding results and excellent grades were scored by mechatronics technician Fabian Hempfling (1.1), followed by technical product designer Anna Leßner (1.2) and electronics technician Maximilian Heußinger (1.3), while Fabian Klein, Johannes Schäfer (both mechatronics technicians) and Florian Schmieder (technical product designer) all gained grade 1.4. Very good results were also turned in by electronics technicians for automation technology Jasmin Seelmann and Volker Deinhard as well as by Yvonne Treubel and Tobias Bayer (both industrial clerks), all achieving grade 1.5. In the district of the Würzburg Chamber of Industry and Commerce, electronics technician Stefan Ehehalt was among the best, passing his exam with an overall grade of 1.2.
As a result of her outstanding results after the first year, the company offered Jasmin Treuter the opportunity to continue her training as an industrial clerk at its Spanish location in Sta. Margarida near Barcelona. As a recognized ASET training company, this plant trains German apprentices under a "co-op program", which is organized as a sandwich course at a vocational school between periods of practical training. Jasmin Treuter recently passed her final exam with the Spanish Chamber of Commerce and Industry with a grade of 2.1.
Brose's head of training, Michael Stammberger, is pleased with the apprentices' good
examination results: "The high performance level of our apprentices is once again convincing. It reflects their strong motivation to work hard and contribute towards Brose's further success on the market.
The international automotive supplier's apprenticeship concept develops and promotes technical and social expertise. Regular language courses as well as international placements lasting for several weeks at the company’s locations in Europe and overseas help in this respect. The concept is complemented by Brose's Junior Company, where young staff members are taught core competencies for their future career. In addition to learning how to work in an independent and autonomous manner, their technical, methodological and social skills for processing work orders are strengthened.
In the Brose Group some 254 apprentices and students at universities of cooperative education are currently receiving vocational training. 161 are located in Coburg and Hallstadt, 68 in Würzburg, 17 in Wuppertal, 7 in Berlin and one in Sindelfingen.
