19 Brose apprentices have successfully passed their exam at the Coburg and Spanish Chamber of Commerce and Industry: Three of them are going to take up university courses, while another two are moving on to further education. Thirteen will work as machine and system operators, IT specialists, industrial clerks and technical product designers, and one will work as a chef at the Coburg and Hallstadt locations.
Similar to previous years, Brose's apprentices in the Coburg Chamber district achieved excellent results and are among the best of those who completed their training.
A total of nine Coburg junior staff had a very good grade average. Daniel Martin Rohm, industrial clerk, and Marcus Freisleben, IT specialist, passed their exam with an overall grade of 1.5, followed by the technical product designers Martina Wendel and Thomas Frömer (both 1.7) and Christian Gründel (1.9).
As a reward for his excellent success during the training, the company offered Ralf Waldsachs the opportunity to continue his training as an industrial clerk at the Spanish location Sta. Margarida near Barcelona after the first year of his apprenticeship. As a recognized ASET training company, this plant trains the German apprentices under a "co-op program" which is organized as sandwich courses at a vocational school between periods of practical training. Ralf Waldsachs recently passed his final exam with the Spanish Chamber of Commerce and Industry with a grade of 1.2.
Brose's head of training, Michael Stammberger, is pleased with the good examination results: "The performance of our junior staff once again clearly documents the high level of motivation of these young people, who are highly committed to increasing Brose's market success."
The international automotive supplier's apprenticeship concept develops and promotes technical and social expertise. Regular language courses and assignments to foreign locations in Europe and overseas lasting from several weeks to several months are also part of this concept, as is the Brose Junior Company. Young staff members are taught core competencies for their future career in this "learning company" at the Coburg location. They learn how to work in an independent and autonomous manner. In addition, their technical, methodological and social skills for processing work orders are strengthened.
In the Brose Group some 252 apprentices and students at universities of cooperative education are currently receiving vocational training. 155 are located in Coburg and Hallstadt, 71 in Würzburg, 16 in Wuppertal, nine in Berlin and one in Sindelfingen.
