Leadec places emphasis on vocational training even in corona crisis
Stuttgart, 10/6/20 - 38 young people have started their first vocational training year at Leadec, a leading provider of technical services in the manufacturing industries. 32 vocational training supervisors are responsible for training in 17 different occupations at 15 Leadec sites in Germany. The new training year starts under normal conditions.
A total of around 100 trainees are currently completing their training at Leadec. “We always need good junior staff and therefore invest in their training on a long-term basis. And corona has not changed this,” explains Claudia Gröner-Braun, Senior Vice President HR Europe Division at Leadec. “As a provider of technical services, we must always be up to date with the latest developments for our customers, and our teams are working on continuously developing themselves further.”
The spectrum of vocational trainings at Leadec ranges from electronics technician for various fields to IT specialist, mechatronic technician, metal worker, construction, cutting and industrial mechanic to office management assistant. The work is mainly carried out in the automotive and manufacturing industries, often directly at the customers’ plants and facilities.
Even during the lockdown, all sites were able to continue training. The program included assignments in the training workshop and in companies as well as tasks that were worked on at home. During this time, the vocational schools imparted the learning content via various online models. The new training year starts under normal conditions – in compliance with the applicable distance and hygiene rules.
“At Leadec, trainees get exciting insights into industrial production right from the start because we support our customers along the entire value chain. Installation, logistics, facility management or maintenance – we are at home in many areas because our heart beats for the factory,” says Claudia Gröner-Braun.
After completing their vocational training program, trainees often continue directly with Leadec. Whether it is further training to become a technician or master craftsman or a two-month break for a social project abroad before starting regular employment with us – we make many things possible.
There are many opportunities for further development, not only for our own trainees. Leadec is also happy to employ trainees who have completed their training in another company. Especially electronic technicians for building services are currently being sought at many sites.
“The corona crisis has brought some companies into economic difficulties. Those who suffer are often the trainees who either cannot continue their training or are not taken on after completing their training. We are happy to offer these trainees a perspective at Leadec,” adds the HR manager.
