Special Youth Show: “Your Chance in Machine Building”

Special Youth Show: “Your Chance in Machine Building”

With its Special Show for Young People, under the slogan “Your Opportunity in Mechanical Engineering”, the VDW’s Youth Education and Development Foundation will once again be represented at the METAV 2016 together with prestigious partner companies. Enthusing young people for engineering and a career in the machine tool industry and thus assuring a reliable supply of skilled staff in the future for the Germany machine manufacturing sector: these are the aims of the Special Show.

In order to show up on the students’ “radar”, it’s important for companies to showcase themselves for young people and to get them actively involved. The concept behind the Special Show for Young People is designed to familiarise them with the machine tool sector and its careers.

Interest, inform and try out … these are the watchwords of the Special Show for Young People at the METAV 2016. On the Special Show’s stand, the young people will gain initial practical impressions and information regarding the everyday modalities of the workplace and the training environment.

In addition, students will have an opportunity to put their questions on the topics of job applications and training to trainees from the partner companies involved and gather the information they need on an equal footing with their peers.

The wide spectrum of information available will be supplemented by exciting presentations for trainers and teachers. Instructors will learn all they need to know about the ongoing activities and projects of the VDW’S Youth Education and Development Foundation.

When: 23 to 27 February 2016
Where: Hall 17 / B115
