Latvian trainees get to know everyday working life at the PKV

With the visit programme the PKV supports the international exchange of trainees - an exciting learning effect also for the own junior staff.

Varel. For the second time now Latvian trainees from the metalworking course at Riga State Technical School have visited Varel companies and BBS-Varel in a four-week internship abroad. The two committed trainees Rolands Stepanovičs and Agris Gavars worked for the first 14 days at Deharde and then at the Papier- und Kartonfabrik Varel, where they were supervised by the head of mechanical maintenance, Frank Essig, the HR manager Aylin Renken and the training manager Dierk Gröne. The two trainees were assisted daily by the apprentices Annika Stiefs, Merlin Vagt and Loris Wiese. It was also an exciting challenge for them to improve their English skills. In addition, their task was to guide their Latvian colleagues safely through their work tasks and help with machine operation - which was very successful thanks to high motivation on all sides! In return, students from Varel are also given the opportunity to complete a small part of their training abroad, financed by the "ERASMUS+" program.
