W&H Academy awarded as great training company
The W&H Academy has been awarded as a great training company by the German professional association Flexoprint. Together with two other companies, the W&H Academy is one of the best three training companies in the flexo and packaging printing industry. The award was justified, among other things, by the high number of apprentices and take-over quota as well as the interdisciplinary continuing education courses.
The Windmöller & Hölscher Academy regularly trains around 80 skilled young workers and dual students in Lengerich. The W&H Academy has now received an award from the DFTA for outstanding performance and quality in the training of its apprentices. DFTA is the German trade association for flexographic printing. The honoring of the best training companies took place in Stuttgart.
The W&H Academy was honored because ot its large number of apprentices, the high take-over rate and multidisciplinary training courses. The director of the W&H Academy, Olaf Heymann-Riedel, sees the award as confirmation of the work of the Academy: "It is important to us to offer young people a good start into professional life with high-quality training. We are delighted that this quality has been confirmed by others now too." From a classical industrial clerk to a bachelor in mechatronics - young professionals are being trained in a total of 11 areas at W&H in Lengerich.
The members of the DFTA Flexographic Printing Association include around 280 companies from the flexo and packaging printing industry in Germany. By honoring the best training companies, DFTA wants to recognize and promote very good training quality in companies.
