Brose Sitech's employees have access to internal and external training courses implemented under the Development Plan. The training centre is located on the premises of the Polkowice plant, which is part of the Competence Centre of Brose Sitech sp. z o.o. Its aim is to shape attitudes and deepen knowledge, among others in the field of Lean Manufacturing, ergonomics and 5S.
The employer also co-finances the costs of studying at school or university and the costs of training (course, seminar, workshop) in the amount of 25%, 50% or 75%.
Brose Sitech sp. z o.o. also takes care of the development of young employees. We signed a letter of intent to cooperate with Zespół Szkół (School Complex) in Chocianow. Since then, we have been offering our students support in the process of vocational training in the profession of mechatronics fitter. In the first year, young workers undergo training in our company, and theoretical and practical education takes place at school. In the second and third year, they are already on the premises. We take care of both the development of their knowledge as well as practical skills, we also help them to prepare for the vocational exam.
We have introduced the "Wanderer" program (Wanderjahre in German). The stay can take place in a selected Volkswagen company around the world and lasts about 6-18 months.
In 2015, the Practical Student Education project was launched in cooperation with the Wroclaw University of Science and Technology and the Polish-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry (AHK Polska). Brose Sitech sp. z o.o. was the first company in Lower Silesia to introduce a dual system of education for students of Mechanical Engineering and Machine Construction. All activities are aimed at deepening students' practical knowledge. The project is related to the combination of education at the university with practical classes at Brose Sitech sp. z o.o. during the academic year.
Supporting the development of the young generation, we have launched the "Start with Brose Sitech" programme, which is addressed to all schools and universities in the area. As part of the program, we offer free internships and paid graduate traineeships. Internships usually last up to 4 weeks, traineeships from 4 weeks to 12 months, and graduate traineeships from 12 to 24 months. Depending on the interests or field of study, our company offers the opportunity to gain experience in such departments as Logistics, Financial, Quality Assurance or Purchasing. Schools and universities, which are located around the Brose Sitech Branches in Glogow and Wrzesnia, also benefit from the programme.
