Training and Management of Trainees

Training young people is one of the most exciting tasks in the company. As a training officer, you have the opportunity to help shape high-quality training and have a significant influence on the positive personal and professional development of trainees.

Many trainees have to deal with the following questions at the beginning of their work: What is expected of me? How can I meet these expectations? Am I able to do this at all?
In addition to the basics of leadership, the basic training primarily deals with the didactic-methodical approach to training. The focus is always on practical implementation. The role of the training officer is reflected upon and the pedagogical "toolbox" is expanded. In this training, you will learn to assume joint responsibility for the entire training process and thus promote the training success of your trainees. You will strengthen your communication, motivation, and especially your leadership skills. With the right tools at your side, you will feel up to the task as a training officer. Well-guided and independently working trainees relieve the skilled workers and will be competent colleagues in the future.
