Heitkamp & Thumann Group welcomes 21 new apprentices
On August 1st and September 1st, 2014 twenty one apprentices started their vocational training program at three German Heitkamp & Thumann Group locations. Currently more than 67 apprentices are trained at all German sites, representing 8% of all German based employees.
In Germany, training for many administrative and technical vocations is provided by means of a dual program of training and education. Apprentices spend three to four days a week at one of our companies, where they acquire the practical skills required for their field of work. The remaining one or two days are spent at a school, where apprentices receive a theoretical grounding in their future job. An apprenticeship lasts between two and three-and-a-half years. During this period, apprentices receive a training allowance.
