Leadec becomes a patron of electrotechnical school program in Polkowice
Leadec and the Nations of Europe Vocational School in Polkowice are working together to open a new electrical technician class at their school. Przemysław Pendrowski, Member of the Board of Management in Poland, and Polkowice Branch Director Dariusz Kowalski signed the cooperation agreement on January 23, 2019 with the Nations of Europe Vocational School in Polkowice for the new program.
“I believe that this is a very important moment for our company. As part of our social responsibility we want to participate in the youth education process and enable practical learning of new technologies including industry 4.0. We want students to gain that experience in our company”, says Dariusz Kowalski, Polkowice Branch Director.
Initiatives like these are supported by Polkowice County. “It's a good sign, and an opportunity for new workplace and school development. I am glad that this type of agreements are signed with leading companies on the market. These programs as well as adapting education to high industry also guarantee acquiring good skills and having a good start in the labor market to our graduates”, says Kamil Ciupak, city councilor for Polkowice.
The project is coordinated and monitored by Dominika Niewiedziała, HR Specialist at Polkowice Branch. Students will be trained by practical occupational learning instructors who have the appropriate qualifications and are experienced, long-time employees of Leadec Branch in Polkowice. After their 4 years training the students have the chance to become an employee of Leadec.
