STUTTGART, GERMANY | Flint Group, in an effort to recruit qualified and well-trained employees, offers apprenticeships at many of its sites. Currently, chemical assistants and mechatronics specialists are educated at the German site of Willstaett, where they are considered for roles as part of the printing plates production team.
Additionally, close contacts to training centers and schools, such as the MoscheroschSchool in Willstaett, have been established. This technical secondary school, which offers a general six-year course of education, has formed a partnership with Flint Group in which students are offered the opportunity to become acquainted with operative processes and diverse job possibilities as part of their career planning. They are able to receive appropriate practical experiences and learn for themselves about workplace conditions and the job qualifications required. Flint Group contributes to the practical teaching and to the improvement of the educational level. The students can take advantage of plant visits and one-week internships at Flint Group as well as career guidance at the Moscherosch School.
Dr. Thomas Zwez, managing director Flint Group Germany, says, “To promote young individuals with talent is very important for us, and this cooperation will bring benefits to both parties—for us as an employer as well as for the young people, to whom we offer guidance for their future.”
Bertram Walter, principal of the Moscherosch School, adds: “It’s essential that our pupils have the possibility to start a high class apprenticeship after their graduation, such as [the one] Flint Group offers. With this educational partnership, we have created a good basis for this.”
