In early July 2018, more than 50 companies in North Rhine-Westphalia opened their
factory gates to provide an insight into job opportunities in the mechanical
engineering industry as part of the “Experience Mechanical Engineering” initiative.
VDMA offers a training course in Duisburg as part of its apprentice mentor programme. Apprentices are given the skills to tell potential new talents about their training and the company where they are training, at schools, careers days, trade fairs or during practical school training programmes.
The ADiTPro² project offers a qualification strategy for trainers in commercial and technical professions to structure industrial processes and products. An initial workshop focused on the repercussions of the digital transformation.
Mechanical engineers from NRW will introduce their wide range of training opportunities to new talents with a presentation on the theme of “Erlebnis Maschinenbau – Technik, die fasziniert” (Experience Mechanical Engineering – technology that fascinates).
As part of the ADiTPro² project, a qualification strategy is being developed, implemented and evaluated for trainers in industrial/technical professions to structure industrial processes and products. The goal is to qualify training personnel to provide future-oriented training as part of the digital transformation.
Vocational guidance starts with research into the vocational fields available. School pupils need to become familiar with professional activities, work processes and the practical world of employment. Exploring professional fields is also an important step toward an internship, which is every bit as much a part of vocational guidance as an analysis of the pupils’ skills, interests and potentials.
The “Telgter Model” has been in place since mid-2008. Its goal is to promote practical cooperation between companies and schools in Telgte, a town in North Rhine-Westphalia, to ensure that pupils gain deepening insights into various occupational profiles at local companies, beyond their individual subject-area studies, from primary school onwards. More than 105 companies from the manufacturing industry, craft enterprises, trade, catering and services are currently participating in the project.
Recent years have seen a steady rise in demand for engineers and skilled workers. Promoting new talent and lifetime learning is therefore a top priority for ProduktionNRW. There are many active players in North Rhine-Westphalia promoting training and further education in the mathematics, IT, science and technology (“MINT”) fields in municipal, regional and nationwide initiatives covering kindergartens through to universities and adult education projects.
