113 new trainees and students at ebm-papst

More than 100 young people started their training or dual or cooperative studies at ebm-papst in Germany on September 2, 2019. MINT occupations are particularly important to the company.

The new training year began in September. At the ebm-papst Group's German locations, 113 young people started their apprenticeships or dual studies. Of these, 70 were in Mulfingen, 15 in St. Georgen, 10 in Herbolzheim, 8 in Lauf an der Pegnitz and 10 in Landshut.

A total of almost 400 trainees and DH students will then be trained in 23 different professions at the technology leader for fans and motors.

For ebm-papst, training and dual and cooperative studies are important instruments for recruiting specialists, especially in the industrial and technical field. The demand for the MINT professions at the fan specialist is unbrokenly high. In order to attract sufficient specialists in these fields, ebm-papst is already trying to get children interested in technology. ebm-papst promotes this with MINT projects in kindergartens and schools, and as the regional organiser of the Youth Research competition, the Heilbronn-Franken regional competition. In addition, the Group cooperates closely with universities in the region to offer students the opportunity for internships or a thesis.

ebm-papst was able to win two applicants for this year's training start each thanks to two successful initiatives by DHBW Mosbach on the Bad Mergentheim campus: "Summer in the Castle!*" and the "Dual²" application week are aimed directly at European prospective students. "Sommer im Schloss!*" is a four-week applicant seminar on dual study in Germany. Participants attend a German course every day for three weeks, receive information on technical and economic dual courses, take part in application coaching, gain an insight into international training companies in the region and have the opportunity to make contacts during leisure activities and excursions. The application week "Dual²" offers all those who unfortunately could not get a place at the "Summer in the Castle!*" the chance to get to know the campus of the DHBW Mosbach in Bad Mergentheim. Interested students of the 12th grade and their German teachers are invited to a one-week stay. This week, internship days at partner companies, visits to the DHBW Mosbach campus and a check of application documents will be offered. There will also be the opportunity to get to know international students of the DHBW Mosbach.

Despite a high number of over 1,000 applications for training at ebm-papst, a few positions could not be filled. There are currently still places available in the electrical engineering and industrial engineering courses in Mulfingen for the start of studies in 2019.
