Are you already thinking about starting training and studies in 2018? 1,160 interested visitors at this year’s ‘Night of applicants’ have done so. On 2 June 2017, at precisely 4 p.m., we opened the doors to the Festo Academy in Esslingen-Berkheim. As in past years, visitors came in droves to find out about traineeships and dual study courses at Festo.
The event is the start of the application phase for 2018. No matter in which direction you intend to go: dual studies at a cooperative university or training, technical or commercial – the night of applicants offers something for everyone.
More than an information brochure: Exchanging with apprentices and students in person
The big plus of the event is the personal contact with those who know Festo particularly well as a training company: our apprentices and dual study students. ‘Every year I am amazed at how much they pass on their experiences and practical tips with so much commitment on this evening,’ says Stefan Dietl, Head of Training at Festo.
The Digital Youngsters team gave an outlook: ‘Training in the future’
Four apprentices from Festo took part this year in the Digital Youngsters competition and won the WorldSkills Germany Digital Award with their future vision of the workplace in 2030. The question at the centre of this was: ‘What does the workplace of the future look like?’ They presented their winning concept live that evening.
