Monday morning we welcomed 19 new apprentices and students at the TecAlliance. This year 9 young people will start an apprenticeship, either as IT specialists for application development or system integration and 10 new dual students will start their studies at TecAlliance. New this year is the Digital Business Management degree program. One student will also start his internship semester in our company.
Last Friday, on the 30th of August, before the official start, we met with the new trainees for a barbecue on the company area. The event was a great success and we were able to get to know some of the new ones a bit better. Everyone brought something to his taste, but we also had many volunteers who took care of salads and baguettes.
The week started with getting to know each other for the new trainees. Around lunchtime we played a game with the whole trainee team called “The Racing Reporter”. It was about finding people for certain characteristics as quickly as possible. Then we created profiles of ourselves in groups to introduce each other afterwards.
On Wednesday and Thursday, the new trainees will have the opportunity to learn more about the company and its various departments, activities and products as part of the “From customer to product” programme. This is done in a kind of role-playing process where a customer reports a problem with our data and this problem is then solved with the help of the various departments.
This week, Friday and Saturday, the entire trainee team will start for the annual trainee trip, which gives us all the opportunity to get to know each other even better.
