Life-long learning, that is, continuous personal and professional development, constantly offers new perspectives. In addition to being an advantage for every individual, continued training is, of course, of great interest and of crucial importance for companies like Volkswagen.
Large numbers, including those of the Pact for the Future, will be the focus of attention in Volkswagen's annual speech on 30 November. Agreed on in November 2016, the Pact for the Future forms the basis for the Transform 2025+ strategy. This strategy will make Volkswagen substantially more profitable, more efficient and more international. Measures like the IT trainee programme are part of this. It was created by Volkswagen Group IT.
Annika Schubert from the IT Academy is responsible for the planning and implementation of the training programme. The programme prepares trainees in one year to become fully fledged members of the existing IT product teams. "Every participant receives the tools needed to work independently in his or her new team," explained Ms Schubert. The Human Resources department selected the candidates in close consultation with the Works Council and the IT Academy.
Volkswagen is like family and has much to offer
Stefan Veuskens is one of the workers participating in the training programme. The 27-year-old from Wolfsburg and of French descent comes from a genuine Volkswagen family.
