Basic vocational education and training important for securing the future
Basic vocational training has had a firm place at Model AG for years. Every year, around 12 apprentices are trained in the professions of packaging technology, logistics, merchants and print media, at all three locations in Switzerland. "Basic vocational training contributes to the fact that we as Model AG will continue to have well-trained specialists in the professions relevant to us in the future," emphasizes Michael Uebersax, Head of HR and Member of the Management Board at Model AG. "As one of the larger employers in the cantons of Solothurn, Thurgau and Vaud, it is also a matter of course for us to support young people on the path to their vocational training." And the investments in the training of young specialists should not be limited to apprentices: "In the future, we want to offer more internships for students and university graduates in order to make the diverse opportunities that the packaging industry offers for professionals even better known," says Uebersax.
Lunch together at the end
At the end, the apprentices were invited to a joint lunch to celebrate their success. Karin Bernet, Head of Vocational Training at Model AG, also notes: "An apprenticeship requires a lot of perseverance, commitment and willingness to learn. The apprentices can be proud of what they have achieved." And although most apprentices will continue to work at Model AG in the future and put what they have learned into practice, the first thing to do is a well-deserved summer holiday.
