At Compuserv we want to motivate our apprentices. We offer not only an environment, in which we provide technical education, but in which everybody has the chance to rise as a person. In close and successful cooperation with the German Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) in Cologne and with the vocational schools we have provided training in five IHK recognized vocational disciplines. Depending on training profession, there is block or part-time teaching.
With more than a hundred employees we are big enough to offer our apprentices interesting departments or projects, but we are also small enough to care personally and be open for every one. If an apprentice wants to stay in a department for some weeks, which has not been planned, we will do whatever we can to make this possible. Our businessmen to be get an insight in the repair workshop or the up-and-coming specialists computer scientists in sales.
Our customer structure is attractive for every apprentice. This covers large customers, for which we carry out services in several European countries, right up to small companies active in various branches here in the German Bergisches Land region.
In addition, there are many interesting challenges and interesting projects, and ever new possibilities of extending your horizon; be it by practical weeks at friendly companies or by customer projects which include business trips as well.
The training at Compuserv is set up in such a way that our apprentices work independently to a high degree during the training, and carry out the requirements of their job well-founded and correctly after completion of the apprenticeship.
Many former apprentices are successfully active in our team now. As we need well-qualified junior personnel as a growing company, we are very pleased about the very high rate of apprentices whom we take over after completion of their training, and who like staying with us.
