Training Day at Gerresheimer Regensburg

The Technical Competence Center in Wackersdorf opens its doors to school leavers

Regensburg, April 2013: Gerresheimer Regensburg is holding its annual Open Day for school leavers on April 27, 2013. Interested young people can come along to the site between 10 am and 3 pm to find out about Gerresheimer’s apprenticeship programs. There will also be an opportunity for visitors to chat to current apprentices at the Open Day, plus guided tours of the company’s training center and tool shop.

Gerresheimer’s “Open Day“ is now in its third year. “We’ve had such positive feedback about our information events in previous years that we decided to hold another one in 2013. It’s a great opportunity for local school leavers to check out Gerresheimer Regensburg GmbH as a potential apprenticeship provider,“ explained HR Director Axel Süss. We offer apprenticeships for plastic and rubber process engineers, toolmakers, mechatronics fitters and electricians, plus sandwich degree courses in mechatronics and plastics engineering.

Axel Süss will be welcoming the visitors with a speech. Then Carmen Kullmann, Gerresheimer Regensburg GmbH’s Training Officer, will be talking about the company’s apprenticeships and degree programs. A tour of the on-site training center will provide some first impressions and the young visitors will also be able to try their hand at plastics processing. The current Gerresheimer apprentices are supporting the event by setting up information stands for each of the apprenticeship programs. They will be at the stands all day chatting to school leavers about the daily routine of being an apprentice, the opportunities that are available to them afterwards and entry requirements for the apprenticeship program.

There are also prizes to be won again this year. A prize draw will be held at the event with a smartphone, two tickets for an FC Bayern home match, including coach trip, and five individual Funtickets from Prokart Raceland going to the lucky winners. Reflecting the nature of the event, Gerresheimer has also included several ‘taster’ internships among the prizes.

Gerresheimer Regensburg is offering another 28 apprenticeships and sandwich degree programs in 2014.
