Finding the right apprentice for your company can be difficult. It can also be difficult for students to decide about their future professions. Internships or other cooperation programmes with schools are two successful models for solving these problemsExample Internship
In an internship programme, students get to know more about a company and a profession by experiencing a company’s working routine for a certain time. They usually have to hand in an internship report and a project they have been working on. Example: Cooperation programme
Some schools want to teach their students not only knowledge, but also practical skills. Cooperation programmes run on a regular basis, with either one of your trainers offering additional courses at a school or students working at your facilities.
These programmes are an attractive possibility to find suitable future apprentices and they offer opportunities for students with poor academic prerequisites but with practical talents.
But be cautious when you select projects for the schools: The schools aren't allowed to do projects under anti-competitive conditions. The teachers can advise you on this, in case of doubt.
