Apprenticeship at thyssenkrupp
Apprenticeship training for young people is a central element of thyssenkrupp's corporate philosophy and an important building block in securing our long-term supply of skilled workers. In 2022 thyssenkrupp trained over 2,500 young people in 62 professions. There are various apprenticeship models to choose from: On the one hand there is the classic apprenticeship in the industrial, technical or commercial areas. On the other hand there is also the option of completing a dual study program. This combines the advantages of theoretical studies and practical training.
Regardless of the path chosen: 92 percent of thyssenkrupp apprentices successfully pass their final exams. And at 88 percent, most of them stay with our Group afterwards. By the way: Even after completing their apprenticeship, thyssenkrupp offers numerous opportunities for further training and development.
Training possible in various segments
thyssenkrupp is not one big company, but a group of companies with very different business areas. That's why the individual segments and their associated companies organize on-site training largely autonomously. To ensure the high quality of our training programs, there is a monthly exchange between the training coordinators of the respective segments. The Group Youth and Trainee Council (KJAV) serves as a central point of contact for all trainees and dual students. It campaigns for their interests within the Group. One example is the drafting of a separate collective agreement for dual studies.
In addition thyssenkrupp is intensively involved in career guidance for young people. We place particular emphasis on the so-called MINT subjects (mathematics, information technology, natural sciences, technology).
