Start of Professional Lives in the Automobile Industry for 59 Trainees and Students for Dual Programs

Stockdorf/Munich – September 1, 2017 – At the beginning of the new training year, a number of young school graduates are again starting their professional lives at Webasto. This year, there are 48 trainees in commercial and technical professions and eleven students for dual programs throughout Germany. Accordingly, a total of 220 young people in their first to third training year are employed by the market leader for sunroofs and panorama roofs, convertible roofs and parking heaters at six locations.

By providing a high-quality training, Webasto offers young people career perspectives and an environment allowing them to develop well in the long run. The hierarchies are flatter than those of large corporations and each individual – from trainee to manager – contributes to the company’s success. Regular advanced training courses, in-house instruction sessions as well as targeted exam preparation make Webasto an excellent training organization.

Andrea Bodner, Head of Training, confirms: “We challenge and encourage our trainees throughout the whole of the period of training and, thus, live up to our high standards of quality. Our working atmosphere is characterized by a strong team spirit and perfectly contributes to the learning process of young people,” continues Bodner.

Even after completing their training, Webasto offers committed graduates a broad range of development opportunities. For instance, they may take up studies in business administration or part-time courses. Furthermore, the in-house advanced training academy supports the personal and professional development of all employees with more than 100 seminars.
