Trostberg. Many young people took the opportunity at the weekend to come with parents and friends to visit AlzChem AG at the TROSTBERG CHEMICAL PARK. As it does each year in summer the company presented its training facilities and provided detailed information on apprenticeships and how to apply for them. 72 apprentices and their instructors were on hand to answer questions, and they used their own experience to report on how the training was structured, the technical schools and examples of what the individual departments focused on. "We find it important that the young school leavers who have shown an interest have the opportunity to chat directly with our apprentices. This is the best way to get them excited and show them how they can plan their future and their training", says Manfred Hochreiter head of training at AlzChem.
AlzChem offers training in 7 apprenticeship-based professions in the fields of engineering, science and commerce, and is one of the most attractive organizations offering training in the region. "We place a good deal of emphasis on providing training that is both varied and highly practical”, says Hochreiter. The training facilities are modern and excellently equipped, and the chances of being offered employment by AlzChem or BASF on site after completing the apprenticeships are good.
43 new apprentices will start their training at the Chemical Park in September – 44 including those at the BKK vor Ort who are training to become social security clerks. Regional head Martin Lochner of the BKK vor Ort described the training, and as an additional highlight offered insights into how to apply for apprenticeships.
Applications are open right now for apprenticeships starting 2016. AlzChem is accepting online applications and applications in writing through to October 2. To find out more about apprenticeships go to www.alzchem.de/de/karriere/ausbildung
