Junior staff at Brose complete training with above-average exam results

Coburg/Würzburg, 10-28-2009

23 young men and women have successfully completed their training at Brose. 14 learned their vocation at Coburg and nine at Würzburg.

Four of those who completed their apprenticeship training will begin studying, while eight others are to move to a school of further education. Eleven will be kept on at one of the two locations in Franconia as machine and plant operators, mechatronics engineers, information technologists, industrial clerks, technical product designers and electronics engineers.

As in previous years, Brose’s apprentices again achieved above-average results in the Chamber of Industry and Commerce district of Coburg and so were some of the best graduates. 13 of the 14 junior staff gained average grades of one and two. Tobias Schillig, an electronics engineer for operating equipment, scored an overall grade of 1.2, closely followed by the technical product designer Tanja Thiem (1.3), while information technologist Bastian Seeber and machine and plant operator Tobias Merbach gained a 1.5.

Another seven Brose apprentices achieved good exam results in the Würzburg district. Julian Fiederling, electronics engineer for operating equipment, was best with a grade of 1.4. At a ceremony at the Würzburg location, head of apprentice training Michael Stammberger congratulated the young people on their impressive performance.

Because of his outstanding success, the company offered Christoph Micklin the chance to continue his apprenticeship training as an industrial clerk after his first year at the Spanish location Sta. Magarida near Barcelona. This plant has been recognized by ASET for training young German staff under the dual system. Christoph Micklin recently passed his final exams before the Spanish Chamber of Industry and Commerce with the grade 2.0.

Michael Stammberger is delighted at the apprentices’ fine exam results: “As in previous years, the level of achievement of our junior staff is above average. It again documents their great motivation to do all they can to make Brose even more successful in the market.”

The automotive supplier’s training concept fosters and demands technical and social skills alike. This is encouraged by regular
language training, sending trainees abroad to Brose locations in Europe and overseas for several weeks or months, and the Brose Junior Company. At this “learning company” at Coburg, the firm’s youngest members learn vital competences for their later career: They are taught how to act independently and under their own responsibility, and also strengthen their expertise, methodological competence and social skills in handling concrete orders.

265 apprentices and university of cooperative education students are currently learning an occupation at the Brose Group. 115 are located at Coburg, 56 in Hallstadt, 68 in Wuppertal, 19 in Würzburg, 6 in Berlin and one in Sindelfingen.
