On November 9th, a training course to become a training ambassador took place in which we, Lars, René and Felix, successfully participated in order to better present our training profession to future school graduates. For this purpose we met at 9 a.m. in the Mittelstandszentrum Tauberfranken with other trainees from different companies in the area.
Various topics were discussed under the direction of Mr. Ehrhardt. At the beginning there was a small introduction round, in which the professions of the others had to be guessed. Thereupon we were introduced to the role of the training ambassador. The Training Ambassador is a trainee from a regulated profession who presents his profession in school classes and promotes vocational training. Usually these come from the second or third year of apprenticeship, since sufficient professional experience could be gained until then. This means that training ambassadors can provide students with comprehensive information about the course of their own training, career prospects and the application process they have experienced.
Afterwards everyone should present what education means to them. In addition everyone received three little cards to hold on to the core terms, so that these can be discussed in the large round afterwards.
Then we talked about slide design, body language and presentation style. After the lunch break, test presentations were held in which we were able to apply the tips and tricks we had learned and received direct feedback before we were released into the weekend.
We are looking forward to the future tasks and activities that we will receive in order to present a positive image of our education to the students.
