Fit for the job: FUCHS provides information on education pathways
On Thursday, 3 November 2011, 24 athletes supported by the FUCHS “Kick-off” sponsoring got a first taste of various work processes during a tour of the FUCHS premises. The Mannheim site also provided information on apprenticeships and study programs.
After an introduction of the company, young FUCHS employees, among them students of the Cooperative State University Mannheim and apprentices presented their study programs and apprenticeships.
“I only knew FUCHS by the name and found the tour extremely interesting,” says 17-year old Niklas who is on the youth ice hockey team of the Mannheim Adler. Helmut de Raaf, Coach of the Under 19, took his whole team on the tour. “Young people lack the exposure to work life. The boys shall acquire first professional experience and gain insight into what starting a career is all about,“ says de Raaf.
FUCHS supports young people at their kick-off into work life and helps them find pathways in their education.
