A day at Beltz: Pupils discover our exciting apprenticeships!

Training as a media technologist is often not one of the top 10 training occupations and is therefore one of the often underestimated training courses, which nevertheless offers a lot of potential. This profession teaches the various technologies and processes of media printing and production. This includes print preparation, the printing process itself and the further processing of print products. We are constantly developing our company and therefore also the field of media technology, which means that these are apprenticeships with a future.

The training usually lasts three years and can be completed in different areas. What makes it special: This apprenticeship focuses on an interest in machines and technology: an apprenticeship with a secondary school leaving certificate is easily possible here. Beltz Grafische Betriebe in Bad Langensalza would like to introduce young people to this exciting apprenticeship, which is why we took part in a regional pilot project in 2022.


“A day in practice” – finding exciting apprenticeships in the region

In 2022, a small fair was held at the Brückenschule Aschara – Staatliche Gemeinschaftsschule for the “Day in Practice”. This is a joint pilot project of the Federal Employment Agency – Das bringt mich weiter – the Erfurt Chamber of Industry and Commerce, the Nordhausen Education Authority and the District Craftsmen’s Association as well as the participating schools and companies. Many different companies were able to present their training occupations from A to Z to the pupils and we were also there.

How does the “day in practice” work?

The 8. and Year 9 pupils will take part in this project and visit a company for one day each week. They will get to know a total of four training occupations over four periods. In order to give young people more security in their future careers, they have to apply before they start their internship and then have an interview.

What is the aim of the project?

The aim of this project is for the students to get to know the local companies better so that they can also see prospects in their home country. They should also be able to get a taste of many different training occupations before starting work in order to find out what suits them, so that fewer apprenticeships are abandoned. We are very much looking forward to giving the students an insight into our company through this project and are excited about the internship time together.
