At the end, the students had the opportunity to ask questions.

During the tour, they gained insights into professions such as technical product designer, industrial mechanic, mechatronics technician, IT specialist, electronics technician for automation technology, warehouse logistics specialist, and industrial clerk. At the same time, they learned about the processes and relationships of Hegla as a company.

The invitation to visit Hegla came about as part of the TELC (The European Language Certificates) course, which the company has financially supported for many years. This elective course offers pupils the chance to advance their English skills and prove it by gaining a certificate.

What Hegla says

“We would be pleased to see one or more members of this group again as part of a job experience scheme or as an apprentice,” says Carsten Koch, the head of marketing at Hegla. “As a company with deep roots in the region, we are happy when we can inspire local people for high-tech and German quality.”
