FRIEDRICHSHAFEN – 23 apprenticeship finishers at Rolls-Royce Power Systems have every reason to celebrate. All of them have successfully completed their training in a total of six different disciplines, and are now entering a new stage in their lives. They are now being taken on under normal contracts of employment, or are alternatively embarking on further training schemes.
“Being ambitious and setting yourself the right goals are the keys to determining what you can achieve, and I'm convinced you're going to achieve a whole lot more” called out Martin Stocker, Head of Training, to the industrial and commercial apprentices at their graduation ceremony. He said it's crucial to stay curious and remain eager to learn. “Digitalization and the Smart Factory revolution have arrived in the world of vocational training. These are defining issues – grasp them with both hands,” Patrick Müller, HR Manager Germany, added.
This year, the company has been particularly successful in placing its winter finishers in departments and functions where they can make best use of their skills, and where these are in greatest demand: “We've succeeded in accommodating all trainees in keeping with their training and individual wishes,” confirmed Works Council member Tamer Kazankaya.
This year's finishers receive their certificates in a very special year. Apprentice training at mtu – the company at the heart of Rolls-Royce Power Systems – is celebrating its 100th anniversary, which is always a good opportunity to cast an eye over what has been achieved, and what lies ahead. The apprentice training workshop in Plant 1 is to be rebuilt and expanded to give trainees more space to get to grips with new technologies. The work is to be completed in time for the new apprentice intake this autumn. A further innovation is the apprenticeship program in Friedrichshafen, which will be expanded to include computer science. As well as the computer science apprenticeship majoring in application engineering, there will also be dual work/study courses leading to a Bachelor of Science degree in computer science and majoring in mobile information, information technology or IT security.
