Trainees join "Die Gläserne Manufaktur"

Two young women and six young men started their trainee journey at "Die Gläserne Manufaktur" on 4 September. Applications for 2018 are open until 30 September.

All smiles in the assembly of "Die Gläserne Manufaktur": the photo above shows the eight young men and women who are completing their traineeship at Volkswagen (from left to right: William Weigel [member of the German youth and trainee representative body, JAV], Nicole Schilling [head of HR and Organisation], Nick Meister, Celine Matthes, Jens Meyer, Sarah Körner, David Reimann, Lukas Ebert, Paul Müller, Richard Jentho, Robin Stoppa [member of the German youth and trainee representative body], Marina Arnhold [member of the Works Council], Paul Kupka [member of the German youth and trainee representative body]), all of whom will be starting immediately their traineeship at "Die Gläserne Manufaktur".


The fact that "Die Gläserne Manufaktur" forges mobility of the future and is a space where electric mobility comes to life, played an important role when it came to choosing the trainees’ workplace.  These are all points that could put the trainees in a strong position for their future careers.


1,586 trainees and students completing a dual study programme will be working for Volkswagen across the whole of Germany, 146 of whom will be completing their traineeship in Saxony, namely in Zwickau, Chemnitz or Dresden.


"Die Gläserne Manufaktur" has been offering vocational training for years – and with successful results. One of the trainees graduating in 2014 achieved a particularly successful result that gave us all the more reason to celebrate: 19-year-old Sophie Marx from Freital managed to complete her training at the Transparent Factory six months early – scoring top marks in the process.

Students wanting to apply for traineeships starting in 2018 still have time until the end of September.
