Lapp Group’s main site in Stuttgart, Germany. This is
three more than in the previous year. Lapp currently
offers 10 different training programs. These range from
apprenticeships in commercial careers such as industrial
administration or warehouse logistics, as well as those for
technical roles such as machinery and systems operators
or mechatronics technicians. Cooperative study programs
are another option, such as business services and logistics
management or electrical engineering management.
This year, the 23 new apprentices include six refugees
from Afghanistan, Eritrea, Kosovo and Somalia. After
completing their 12-month entry qualification, they are
now starting their apprenticeships as machinery and
systems operators and business IT specialists. This is part
of Lapp’s participation in the German government’s project
to help integrate refugees in the country. In 2018, another
six refugees will be given the chance of an apprenticeship
at Lapp. The company allows its apprentices and students
to spend time working abroad. For four to 12 weeks,
they have the choice of either working in one of Lapp’s
international subsidiaries or taking part in the EU’s
ERASMUS+ program. Here, they do an internship at a
different company and take language classes. This year,
17 of Lapp’s apprentices have taken up this opportunity.
In all, 64 young men and women are currently receiving
training at the Stuttgart site. So far, almost 100 percent
of the apprentices have been taken on permanently after
Welding educators can now use Lincoln Electric's
Course Builder program as a resource.
